The Coast Guard Boot Camp Survival Guide is your ticket to more sleep, less physical and mental punishment and overall success in Coast Guard Basic Training.
I just came back from Coast Guard Boot Camp a few months ago so this information is very up-to-date and it has all the secrets they don't want you to know before you get to Cape May. Don't go into this blindly. Believe me when I tell you - it's worth knowing this stuff before you go. The extra sleep especially is worth it. I remember one night when I was so sleep deprived and exhausted that I literally started shivering and shaking in bed after lights out. Consider that I was also in above average physical condition so I was able to handle the "beatings", but lots of exercise combined with very little sleep will still take its toll on you. If you get my book though, you can seriously reduce the amount of punishment that will be handed out by your Company Commanders and get A LOT MORE SLEEP.
The Coast Guard Boot Camp Survival Guide is divided up into 20 Chapters. Most chapters also have a Review Section and a Practice Now Section that tells you how to apply the information into your overall preparation plan.
