The Shipmaster’s Business Self-Examiner 2024 Includes: 

  • Guidance on preparing for Master’s Orals 
  • Question-and-answer format 
  • Maritime regulations and guidance
  • Master’s responsibilities 

For 26 years The Shipmaster’s Business Self-Examiner has been the indispensable companion for all mariners studying for their MCA Master’s Orals exams. As a study aid, it is unrivalled.

This 11th edition retains the familiar question-and-answer format of its predecessors but has been redesigned to provide a much-improved user experience. Navigation through the complexities of the Master’s duties has been eased by splitting the subject into 114 topics. 

The text has been completely revised and updated to the end of Q1/2024, re­flecting the many changes to maritime legislation and MCA guidance since Britain’s exit from the EU. 

An introductory section provides practical guidance on preparing for and answering Master’s Orals. The Q&As follow closely the topics covered in recent Orals questions and better re­flect the needs of today’s shipping industry. The reorganisation of the material enhances the 11th edition’s value as a reference for the newly qualified Master and for all who have decision-making responsibilities at sea and onshore.

If you live in a remote area, a ‘remote area surcharge’ may be applicable when booking your order on with a courier service for dispatch. A remote area surcharge is an additional fee that is added by a courier service for delivery to a remote location. We will always contact you about this should it ever happen, as it is not a fee that applies during the checkout phase of the online ordering process, but you will be expected to pay it should you wish to receive your order.

Orders placed with us will be dispatched within one to two working days. Dispatch is dependent upon the time when the order is received and provided that all goods ordered are immediately available. If any items are temporarily out of stock, we will endeavour to dispatch the complete order within 7 working days. We always endeavour to ship complete orders and try our best not to ship part orders as a general rule, but on occasion this rule may have grounds for it to be broken due to the varying nature of orders received. We will always try our best to communicate the status of your order should any issue arise that we feel you need to be made aware of.
