Advanced Theory for Recreational Divers is a book written for those who have to answer questions from clients or students on the subject of diving theory, for those who are preparing for an exam at leadership level and for those who are simply curious about the background of our favorite activity.
The 5 chapters of the book cover physics, physiology, skills & environment, equipment and decompression theory. At the end of each chapter there are several questions for practice. The book gives an enormous amount of background information and hints and tips to memorize the sometimes complex subject. Through a unique approach, physics calculations become easy for everybody - also for those who hated mathematics and physics at school.
The book is written by Jan Oldenhuizing. Jan is a full-time PADI Course Director since 1986 and has issued more than 4600 certifications on instructor level in the past 20 years. This enormous exposure to candidates makes him the perfect choice to write this book - he knows exactly which concepts are immediately understood and on which point there should be emphasis or more detailed explanation. He has seen many times which approach to explain a concept works and which one does not. He has been a big help for all those he prepared for their instructor exam and now (thanks to this book) everybody can take benefit from his exceptional experience in leadership level training in diving.
The last chapter of the book covers decompression theory in detail. This makes the book a good tool when teaching the Electronic Diving Instruments specialty. The book retails for 49.90 euro.
