I have the PADI Recreational Dive Planner from my OW cert class. Now I am about to get my AOW with NAUI but the class materials contained no dive table. I assume NAUI has their own dive table and how does it differ from the PADI one?

You can also download the Computerized table tutor (check out this thread: http://forum.scubatoys.com/announcement.php?f=35&a=2 (http://www.scubatoys.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=500&KW=tutor)

and then you can do problems with both the tables. The tables are also just bmp files that get written to the directory you install to, so you could also print them if you want.</DIV>

edit: PS. If you have any trouble doing that, shoot me a pm with your email address and I can just email you the bmp files.

The thing to know is that the letters don't match up. A PADI "D" diver is not the same as a US Navy "D" diver. But if you d all the work using only one table you will be OK. I thinkthe Navy table is more consevative about repetive dives but hassome slightlylonger bottom times. Padi has both blue and clack numbers on the back the others just have one set. Very minor diferences really.

The big thing is that you can't mix tables
