From the Introduction:
Although Scuba Tune-up includes a Diving Skills review section, this does not replace an actual in-water review of diving skills with your PADI Professional. Contact your PADI Dive Center or Resort to schedule your Confined Water Skills Review.
From the Dive Skills Review Section:
During this section you reviewed important dive skills you learned during your entry level scuba course, but this is no substitute for spending time in the water with your PADI Professional going over these skills. During such a session you’ll have the opportunity to practice important skills such as buoyancy control, mask clearing, breathing from an alternate air source and determining the correct amount of weight to wear.
