On Cloud Nine... How I Passed the ACE Exam

by Cindy

Hi Katie, first, thank you SO much for your awesome test-prep package!!! It was singularly the best value and prep for my ACE exam that I could have run into - thank goodness I did. I passed the exam today after only three weeks of study, and it wasn't a narrow pass, either! I was previously certified 10 years ago, but in some ways it was like going into it fresh in terms of the test itself.

Second, I signed up for the newsletter a while back but can't find my link to the starter kit. Was it a download, or a link to one? Can you help on this part?


Thanks in advance!

Cindy (on cloud nine)

It didn't seem to take you long to master the information. Just wondering whether you have a science background?

Well she said that she got a cert. 10 years ago, so even if she learned some new stuff, she had previous experience

Passed the ACE Exam Using This

by Baolin Liu
(Daly City, CA)

There were definitely questions from the quizzes that showed up in the Exam which made me feel at ease, because I already knew the answers to them. This prep course helped me know the information I needed to do well on the test.

Passed ACE CPT Exam!!!

by B. Swift
(MPLS, MN)

Just wanted to say thank you for this great course you offer here. Passed today with a 534 score. I only studied for about a month and a half but I have been lifting for 8 years, play collegiate sports and my major is Exercise Science with a minor in Psychology. My advice is to take these quizzes over and over till you want to smack yourself, then do them again. Also study the materials ACE gives you because you will definitely have to know a lot of information regarding health and muscle actions. Take your time and read through the questions carefully. Good luck!

I took the course and passed the Ace exam on my first try.

by Dustin
(Vancouver,BC, Canada)

I highly recommend this course; it was a great review and gets you on the right track for the test for sure. The questions that are provided in the quizzes are very similar to the ones on the test.

For the exam itself I recommend taking the 6 months to prepare, and take a course that will prep you for it other than this one. I took the Fitness Theory course for BCRPA in Canada and felt way more knowledgeable in the basic areas like anatomy and basic program plan ect.

On the test itself I was asked mainly theoretical questions like if you get a client that has a protruding abdomen and pelvic tilt how do you correct it. Also I suggest you study up on program design for special populations as I was asked many questions on this and there is more than likely going to be one on the practical part I got Pregnant woman in the start of the second trimester. With the math be prepared for not having a calculator most problems are easy for long division but they did have one difficult one. The test is not easy and you should be prepared most of all use common sense
Good Luck

Good Value for ACE

I am incredibly grateful for the services you provide. I completed my doctorate in education in 2007 and subsequently realized that I really didn’t want to work in the field I had chosen. Instead, I wanted to become a personal trainer. As a result of the many resources and great information you provide on your website, I was able to make an informed decision about the fact that PT was what I wanted to do and I was able to determine the type of certification that was right for me.

I used your practice test to help me to pass my ACE certification test on the first try and read many of the questions and other supportive information provided on your site to help me get through the process. I also received prompt answers to any questions I posted on your site.

Without the services and information you provide on your site, I'm quite sure that it would have taken me much longer to: 1) decide to become a personal trainer (which really is my passion), 2) understand the differences between the most common certifications available, and 3) feel prepared to pass my certification test - which as I already said I did on the first try thanks to the practice test questions on your site that I could access for a mere $25 and which came with a money back guarantee!!

I think the work that you do is invaluable. So thanks again and I hope you will continue to provide services for those of us who really do appreciate all that you do!

I Wouldn't Pass The ACE Without This Review Course

by Ken Sanford
(Schenectady, NY)

Katie,
I want to give you a deep and heartfelt thanks for this review course. As the title says, I don't pass the ACE exam without it. I thought I was well-prepared for the exam, but once I started taking the review tests I found where I was nearly as strong as I thought I was (I failed more than half of the practice tests!). After seeing where I was weak, I was able to review those areas. The ACE exam is no picnic; as many have said, there are a lot of questions that say MOST or BEST, when all of the answers would seemingly fit. Plus, the second scenario in the assessment part of the exam was for a pregnant woman. I failed the special populations test in your review course, so thankfully that was an area I brushed up on. Thank you again Katie, I truly appreciate it.


-Ken Sanford, ACE-CPT (I LOVE having that after my name now!)

Helped Me Pass ACE CPT Exam

I want to thank you for making the personal training practice exams. While I was preparing for my CPT test, my backpack, which contained my ACE study manual, was stolen out of my car. After that I had to rely on any info I could find in order to study for the test. I passed my ACE exam in April 2008 and it was solely because of your practice test that I did. It was a great tool for preparing for the exam.



Thanks again,



Ken Melrose

I Passed the ACE exam!

by Dani
(Lancaster, Pa)

I passed the ACE exam on the first try!!! The online review course was very helpful, especially on the basic anatomy. I would definitely recommend taking your course to anyone, not just to pass the test, but I learned a lot from it. You have a lot of info in there that I feel I am more educated on, even if all of it wasn't on the test. There was a lot of 'good to know' info.

It's a lot to take in when you just have the ACE manual to study from and I think the course quizzes really helped me retain the info, which I was having hard time doing. I was more disappointed the actual test didn't have more anatomy/planes of movement questions because I was really ready for them (lol).

I really studied for 3 months but I think I focused too much on the anatomy and physiology and not enough on program design. I was hoping for a higher score but I think my nerves got the best of me towards the end of test and I know I answered very conservatively on the written simulation. I was scared to check boxes and then not be able to uncheck and I'm pretty sure that hurt score.

On other note, I love and am grateful for your website. I've gotten a lot of info on there about training business and just picking the right certification. I'm actually on there a lot trying to take all in. I live in Lancaster, Pa and fitness isn't a big industry around here so its hard to find reliable and trust worthy advise but your site provided that for me. Thanks for all your prompt responses to my questions and for putting everything together. It has been tremendous help to me in a lot of areas. Thanks again for everything.

Help!
by: Dayna

Hi- I'm currently studying for the ACE exam on my own (no AP or exercise phys. background- BS in Political Science 20 yrs ago). So this is all extremely daunting and very scary. I'm not sure exactly what to focus on for the exam- it's sooo much info. Im having a hard time retaining it all. I would love to be able to chat with you regarding what/how you studied. I'm reading the chapters- doing the review and dont think I'm retaining enough to possibly pass this test. I'm freaking out basically..
It seemed like this info really worked for you- would you mind sharing how you studied and what worked for you. Especially for memorizing the muscles...Thank you so much. Dayna
