Im still under DEP and Im pretty sure it would be nice to have an advantage when I go to RTC. Buying this book is one way to have that advantage. As soon as I received this, I feel like reading the whole context of it ( though I know some of them aren't that important YET). Though every future sailor have their own START guide and can search online about what bootcamp and life in the navy would likely be, this is also a good reference - if not the best. Eventhough you will be given this one in RTC, there's nothing wrong in buying it just to be ready for bootcamp. It's like investing for your future. What is 31 bucks for a possible increase in paygrade (it's like $200 a month advantage). The bottomline is I recommend this because it is indeed helpful.
