My girlfriend is currently taking her Open Water certification thru the YMCA. She would like me to help her with studying for her written test. Is there anything in particular that I should focus on that YMCA likes to focus on more then PADI does?

I don't know if every YMCA is the same, but when I went through my YMCA cert last year, there were review questions at the end of every chapter. Just review those and she should be fine. Also make sure she understands the dive tables.

It's mostly common sense, so as long as she was awake during class, she should be fine.

Good luck.

I took the my YMCA cert test last June and it was pretty straight forward...Know all the review questions, the hand signals, and being good with the tables should take care of most of the questions. Everything on the test was in class or the book. Good Luck.
