I believe you should have to show multiple examples of choosing best gas for
depth and MOD of given gas.  You should also demonstrate an IQ higher than a
tennis shoe when it comes to analyzing your gas-- to define that--they are
several different types of analyzers out there-so the course should include
an overview of some of the differences.

If you are dying to give more of your hard earned cash to the dive shop
monkeys and want to pay for a checkout dive--more power to you.  You are not
going to change the way you breathe just because it is nitrox are ya?  This
is beyond pale.

I expect to see one arguement in here about watching an individual's
buoyancy--well if that is an issue and some moron wants to bounce around and
off himself--more power to him--more room on the boat for me.

You should have that silly shit squared away before Nitrox class.
