Hi. Started school 2 weeks ago in Virginia. We have started on our log book and the question is: on the 60/7 day driver on the side of the book, 2-29-3/1/2015-Off duty 3/2/15 : 16.5 hours off duty 0 sleeper 3 hours driving and 4.5 on duty that should put my recap at 7.5 hours and a is 62.5 Then 3/2/2015 16.5 off duty 0 sleeper 4 hours driving and 3.5 on duty Recap of 7.5 so I come down to a and put 7.5 and b is 62.5 and c is 55 3/3/2015 : 16.5 off duty 0 sleeper 4 hours driving and 3.5 on duty Recap 7.5 so a is 7.5 b is 62.5 c is 55 3/4/2015 16.5 off duty 0 sleeper 1.5 driving and 6 on duty Recap 7.5 so a is 22.5 b is 37.5 is 14

I think I messed up on the book. Does anyone have a source of how to do this correctly? Thank You Allen

Allen, knowing how to work that log book is vital to being a successful driver. Have you worked your way through the logs section of the High Road Training Program? You will be way ahead of everyone else if you'll do that.
