This book is a great companion for anyone taking a dry suit course through a recognized agency (ex. SSI, PADI, etc.).
Some of the core concepts of dry suit diving are repeated and images are seen
throughout the book to strengthen the readers grasp of the content. The language of test is not exhaustive, but again gives enough that the reader can go into the classroom armed with enough knowledge to get a head start on the course.
I would not recommend that this text is a replacement for a course whatsoever but that as an excellent assistant that is relevant in today's dry suit technologies and terminoligy.
