    You should always study for a diving test, but the SSI Open Water Test is VERY EASY!

    Your instructor may have their own version of an open water test that has been approved by SSI though.

    I just took the test last Thursday. Piece of cake. Just look over your review questions. Did you actually read the book? If you did, then you will have no problem. If you didn't, there are a couple questions that are in the book but are not review questions.
    Just because you're necessary, doesn't mean you're important.

    No, the test is not that hard....if you read the book that is. If you read it like you said, you'll be good to go. Good luck and keep us posted and let us know how you did?

    My instructor (I took the test day before yesterday) told me that it was designed to be passed by a 10 year-old. Dunno whether this was just an attempt to lighten the atmosphere or not. In any event, I thought the test was easy.

    I would agree, I took the test Wednesday and it was a breeze. The questions are fairly easy, I just glanced through the book a bit. The main part is understanding how the dive tables work. I wouldn't sweat it, I got 100%. It really comes down to just reading the book and understanding what they're saying.
