How well do you know your dive tables

A different thread spurred me to ask this question. They still make dive tables, both PADI and NAUI have different ones. So how proficient are you at finding, your bottom and surface interval times on repetitive dive days?

When we did our AOW with St That seemed to be one major subject Nick stressed on us. By the time the class was over I think everyone knew them . Hope I never have to do them again I'll stick with my computer

Yes we do tend to rely on our gadgets don't we, I also use a comp for that primary task. But consider this, Dive tables are unbreakable old tech. If you have a watch, and bother to set it before each dive, and your comp goes belly up during the dive or surface interval, you are not SOL, You can still fall back on the more conservative profile the tables afford and still salvage the day. In more dire situations they can keep you from getting bent, if you calculate what your dive should be like if dived by the tables before hand, and your comp goes on the blink during a dive.

Of course everyone diving gas integrated, comps without a spg / depth gauge backup have bigger problems

I log all my dives using tables, and can use the PADI & SSI ones fine. Have only just bought a computer but I will continue to log as best I can with tables as well.

I have to review after the few winter months that I do not dive, but it comes back pretty fast, as I do not use a computer yet.

Somewhere between knowing them in my sleep and being able to use the ones I was trained on ok so I rounded down to be more conservative but wait don't you round up to be more conservative?

I teach people to use the tables and the wheel but dive with two computers. If I were to use the tables I'd be sitting out a lot of dives it's a rare dive where I do an actual square profile.

I dive with a computer, but I still use the table to log my dives. I use only the PADI, and if you use it regularly, it's easy, if I stop using it for a while, then I have to think a bit more to remember how it works.
