ACSM vs. ACE. Need advice, thank you!
I have a degree in Adult Fitness & Exercise Science, most of the material in that program was through ACSM. I originally bought the study materials for the ACE test b/c it was the cheapest but they raised the price A LOT! From $250 to $400!! I've heard awful things about the ACE test & how ridiculously hard it is & more people on this site have passed the ACSM test. I am getting the feeling that ACE isn't really in it to prepared trainers to help others with their fitness, it's all about the $ and they want people to fail the test so they will keep paying to take it over and over.I am not in a place to spend lots of money on more study materials and I still have all of my ACSM textbooks from college (I graduated in 2010). I am looking for advice on whether or not I should take the ACE test because I have the materials and have been studying them or if the ACSM test is a better choice. This website is awesome and everyone's input really helps!!
