    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

      Surfing? In Warsash?? Hahaha.

      The FD ETO course is new this year in Warsash so not too sure to be honest. General bits to bring with you have been covered on the forum before.

      Maybe some Tyneside ETOs can recommend course-specific stuff.

        Well all the specific books you need should be in the college library so all you really need is a scientific calculator (but not a graph plotting one).

        Keep us informed about how you find the course, having just finished the course at Shields im interested to hear jow Warsash differs.

          You don't really need any thing extra to help, i didn't find my self buying any thing the first year. There is one book that's amazing though and it called the "Practicle Marine Electrical Knowledge" (second edition) nice blue book, has most of the stuff you will cover at college and is helpful when it comes to reports for your TRB. It should be in your college library so you don't have to jump the gun and buy it yet

            Some cadets get bought a copy of the book by their companies too.

                I have a nike blue/orange backpack that I used for college, would this be alright for day to day carrying of books or would you recommend something else ? The colours might not fit in with the uniform though.

                      On paper the warsash course looks better than the shields one.

                      Comparing the two courses probably needs its own thread. The main problem with the shields course is the college management and the fd degree body Northumberland who made it very control theory heavy. The Warsash course seems to have less control theory and this time is used to learn about marine plant and the electrics inside instead.

                        There is actually the Practicle Marine Electrical Knowledge" (third edition) which was written by the same author Dennis T. Hall. Which was published Feburary 2014, so should be more up to date.

                          Yes they had the new book on board my last ship. ?80 for the hard back edition. Its essentially the old book with better diagrams and in colour.

                            I was able to find one for the price of ?50 which is the same as the older book in some places.
