    I would recommend the following Flip card sets:
    http://www.flipcards.co.uk/product/lights-and-shape
    http://www.flipcards.co.uk/product/iala-buoyage-area-a
    http://www.flipcards.co.uk/product/code-flags
    http://www.flipcards.co.uk/product/morse-code

    I wouldn't bother getting both sets of buoyage, the differences between IALA A and B are quite minor (colours of lateral marks).
    Those are the cards that I thought most helpful and used myself. I don't think everything they produce cards for is best learnt with cards. The one other set that might be worthwhile is http://www.flipcards.co.uk/product/rule-of-the-road

    And don't forget to hold onto your cards after you qualify - they make a handy teaching aid when it's your turn to train cadets, and for yourself when it comes to do your higher tickets. You will use them all again for Chief Mate's!

    Cheers Steve, just ordered the pocket guide from Amazon! At ?2.87 it really doesn't matter if and when it starts to make sense to me, worth picking up!

    Flip cards a definitely the way forward, they helped me a lot when I was a cadet.

    As far as colregs go, by all means make a start but remember some won't make much sense until you've been to sea. Also, 90% of the point of learning the colregs is learning what they mean. Only 10% of that should be knowing the exact wording

    RoR can be found at http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Intern...lisions_at_Sea though it's a wiki, so caution applies.

    38 Rules and four Annexes, but you only need to learn rules 1-19 verbatim.

    The standard texts are:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/A-Seamans-Gu...9924379&sr=8-1

    or
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pocket-Inter...ref=pd_sim_b_1
    for just the Rules on their own and it really does fit into a pocket.

    or if you are feeling really flush there is http://www.amazon.co.uk/Guide-Collis...9924605&sr=1-1 but I'd save that for later, it goes into a lot more depth than is necessary.

    Supplement the books with Flip cards (or make your own):
    http://www.flipcards.co.uk/product/l...hape?related=1

    And for buoyage there is the official Hydrographic Office publication:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/NP735-IALA-M...9924834&sr=8-1

    But most of the time Flip cards will do:
