This training course for Chief Hospital Corpsman contains a series of instruction tests covering each of the references listed under "introduction."

These questions are presented in forms described by the Bureau of Naval Personnel text, Constructing and Using Achievement Tests, NavPers 16808-A, and conform to the requirements for advancement to Chief Hospital Corpsman as set forth in the Manual of Qualifications for Advancement in Rating, NavPers 10868 (Revised).

To provide a comprehensive coverage of the contents of this course, the student taking the course should:

1. Read the reference texts thoroughly.

2. Fill in the answers to each question in the assignment. 3. Review the texts and try to correct all mistakes.

4. Refer to the answers at the back of the book for final correction.

In this manner it is expected that the student will review the text at least twice and should thus obtain a more definite understanding of the subject.

A description of the types of questions used, together with instructions, appears under the heading "How to Use This Course" in the preceding pages.

The student should be instructed not to fill in the answers in this book. A blank sheet of paper is to be used for this purpose with proper headings designating the subject, the assignment number, and the answers written thereon. This measure should preserve the books in good condition for future use by other students.

Upon completion of this course, the Training Officer should proceed with the preparation of a test covering all the assignments of this course. The student's grade for successful completion of this course can be determined by his performance in the test and should be recorded in his service record.

In the event that the student is to be transferred to another activity before completing the training course, certification
