Maritime Institute "Mariner's Guide to Rules of the Road" Navigational Study Aid

The Mariner's Guide to Rules of the Road has been developed by Maritime Institute to help students and mariners understand and learn The Rules of the Road.

The Mariner's Guide to Rules of the Road is a valuable memory aid. Some individuals learn better by being able to "visualize" the lights and sounds that are a part of the rules. We recommend copying "The Mariner's Guide to Rules of the Road" many times. You will then be learning the rules and not just memorizing questions and answers. Our students that are able to copy this from memory on test day seem to be more relaxed and do better on the exam. Remember to look on the reverse side as there are many "sayings" that are memory aids also.
