    Orals instruments questions?

    Was just wondering what the most common orals questions are with regards to the instruments. Thanks.

    Got a lot on the sextant. Asked me to read it off. What on and off arc meant.

    Well I was asked to demonstrate how to use a precious aneroid barometer. And before I had walked in the examiner had deliberately set it off by around 50 millibars so I was stood there for a little while wondering if I was doing something wrong. Obviously it was an attempt to throw me off but it is something an examiner may try and do. But it's most likely you'll get a sextant so best be clued up on that. But expect anything to come up.
