||Study aids and reference ebooks for all levels of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) exams.
LAPWARE, LLC is a program developed in 2001 and posted on the web in 2002 for
the study and preparation of taking the U.S. Coast Guard DECK license exam. In
March 2010 the ENGINEERING database of questions was posted. All exam questions
and illustrations available are those posted by the United States Coast Guard
(USCG) National Maritime Center (NMC). None of the information on this website
is allowed to be distributed for use by others without written permission from
Richard Plant. Prior to the purchase of any
eBooks or files it is recommended that users download and install the free
proprietary Copy Safe PDF Reader to better understand the use of the Reader.
Users are encouraged to download and review the SAMPLE EXCERPT files for each
eBook so they know what they are purchasing. ALL purchases are final.
LAPWARE stands for License Advancement Program software and is used as a primary
aid for the preparation of license exams in the United States. This Study Aids
sever was generated to allow authors to better provide files for sale that will
better aid mariners in their goal of obtaining USCG license. These file are not
only beneficial to mariners preparing for their exam but for practical usage
while at sea. LAPWARE is operated by Richard Plant, retired and who has 27.5
years of teaching experience and Captain Joseph Murphy, over 30 years of
teaching experience at Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Captain Murphy also
produces and sell the “Murphy Deck Guide Books” for Deck officers.
We are offering to other authors the opportunity to create and post other
merchant marine study aids for sale to mariners. Any one interested in doing
this should contact Richard Plant.

These Study Aids are initially aimed at Merchant Mariners in the United
States who are sitting for their U.S. Coast Guard license exam. Other
mariners around the world might find them beneficial as well. Presently
we have Stability, Rules of the Road in two versions. We do plan on
developing other eBooks such as Engineering license exams questions and
illustration books as well as copies of the Code of Federal Regulations
(33, 46 and 49 CFRs) which will have to be generated yearly based upon
regulatory changes. Other study aids will also be developed based upon
user feedback and the need as determined.
Access to LAPWARE for Deck mariners is found at www.lapware.org. Access
to LAPWARE for Engine mariners is found at www.lapwareengine.org.
Lapware stands for License Advancement Program software and is presently

latest USCG NMC question database. The addition of this server is simply
a means of allowing the provision of additional manuals for study for
the license exam or practical usage while at sea. Remember, presently

the most secure means of protecting files from copying,
