Disclaimer: Any study guide posted here may have incorrect information, as everyone is human...including the BMs who've written the study guides (not to mention policy changes). This is why it is critical that you read the appropriate manuals when studying, not just read the study guides. If you find something wrong, notify the study guide author so they can update it and submit a corrected copy. You are responsible for knowing the material, so I would encourage you to hit the books first and use the study guides as a companion document to your studying.

Check back often. Pass the word to your fellow BMs and help your baby

wish you all good luck in your careers.

Be aware that many of the BM EOCT and courses have changed recently. Study guides posted here may be dated now and will not completely prepare you for the test.
Read your course material, hit the manuals, and do your homework. No point wasting your time (or your ESO's) if you didn't prepare for the test.

then I have no desire to be popular, and I am quite sure I will never be."
