  • Technical Books

    Can anyone suggest any books that I could read prior to phase one?? I'd like to start in the best possible position.

    Il be on the ETO(HND) route, at South Tyneside. Any suggestions would be brilliant!

    Thanks

    Seamanship techniques by Dj House is very good but the price is no joke.

      you might find a torrent or rapidshare link somewhere, but it's a nice book for bridging the gap between basics and more academic ones.

        Managed to get a torrent of that nemo. Thats a brilliant book, from looking at the contents. It covers basically everything, it might not go too academic but it certainly goes part way!

        Excellent, thank you!!

          make sure it's the second edition (the blue one), as the first edition has some very dodgy errors in it.

            I found a torrent on pirate bay but it looks the first edition with the serious errors, the 2000 edition

              you could always just buy it... it's not that expensive.

                  That book lacks the maths that you might need though. I'm not sure what the level is, but, the sort of book that might be worth a look is:
                  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Engineering-Mat ... 0130268585
                  The plus of this one is that it's tailored to the type of maths you might experience (but it might go further into it than you need).

                  For maths "training mini modules", these are the most effective ones:
                  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Foundation-Math ... pd_sim_b_2
                  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Engineering-Mat ... gy_b_img_b
                  (you probably won't need all of the second one; and the first one might be a more in depth version of the first section of the second one).

                  These books are often easy to pick up second hand.

                  No idea what these ones are like:
                  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Marine-Electric ... 702&sr=1-4
                  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Practical-Marin ... 702&sr=1-9
                  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Advanced-Marine ... =1-1-spell

                  ...or the dubiously entitled:
