Land Navigation


  • Going into SFAS while I'm in the Navy so I won't have prep other than what I do on my own. With that being said any good books you recommend for learning Land Navigation on my own? 



  • Jesse, 

    I wouldn't worry about Land Nav too much. Once you get to SFAS they will teach you everything that you need to know. You will likely just pick up bad habits if you spend too much time trying to learn on your own. I went to SFAS with zero land nav experience and had no issue passing the star course. 

    IMO your time would be better spent preparing yourself physically. The more time you spend under a 35-45lb ruck, the better off you will be. Your back and feet will thank you for it when you actually get to Camp Mackall!
