IDC Crewpack (PADI) - What’s REALLY Needed?

Hey PADI friends,

I am getting ready to start my OWSI portion of the IDC and I’m trying to get an answer to the following question: What parts of the IDC crewpack do you REALLY need? Because I used only bits and pieces of my divemaster and EFRI crewpacks, and would hate to spend $500-$600 on another crewpack. I have access to the "guide to teaching" and hologram decal separate from the pack, what else would I need to recoup to pull off the course?

I am not trying to cut any corners, but we all know how expensive those books get, and I don’t need a fancy PADI backpack to carry it all!

I used just about everything in the crew pack. Not to mention all the current student manuals from open water to Divemaster. Honestly, I think its worth investing in the crew pack that way you know you have all current material and you get everything in one shot.
