    "100 Problems in Celestial Navigation"

    I'm having problems with "100 Problems"
    At Christmas, I received a copy of
    "100 Problems in Celestial Navitation
    Self-Contained -- with Answers" by Leonard Gray.
    I am having real problems working these problems.  I can't make get the
    "right answer". I don't know why.  I am not having trouble working
    Silcon Seas problems.
    The problems in 100 problems all seem extremely straightforward.
    You are given a most recent fix, a course, and a speed, and a new
    round of sights.  You must figure your DR location at the time
    of the sights and plot your position.  Straightforward.  I figure
    I ought to come within 1-2 nmi of the author.  But, after working
    the first 6 problems, I am finding myself 5-10 miles away from the
    author most of the time.
    Has anyone tried these problems?  Any comments?
