Is this the same material that you'd have in PADI's e-learning online class?
this is the same material PADI instructors use when teaching, I have not seen the e-learning class but believe it will be the same
Hi I am a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, yes the book is the same material as in the elearning, but it's convenient to have the manual to hand for reference and it will help you answer the questions in the elearn review you will have with your Instructor. You also get a hard copy of your Air Dive Tables the Recreational Dive Planner RDP and a Log Book which your Instructor will complete with your Dive Training Records. Happy Diving.
It is the same material, but, I like the book better because it's, in my opinion more hands on. If u have an e book/ipad it could work for you but again I like to have a pencil with me and fill in the questions. As I go.
I'm not familiar with the e-learning online class, however, this pak is what you'll need for your first Open Water Certification with PADI's program.
A great adventure lies ahead. YG

I purchased the OW crew-pak for my son. The e-learning class goes over everything in the crew-pak but I wanted my son to have the tables and work with them instead of using the online tables. Access to the e-learning class goes away after a year so I wanted my son to be able to keep the book and tables with him as he progresses as a scuba diver. I'm working on my Dive Master certification now but I still refer to my Open Water book and tables.
That doesn't mean that I don't like the e-learning, I think it's exceptional and my son did the OW e-learning. I just wanted him to have the materials at hand for reference.
