Where do I begin studying?
Ok, so I just bought all of the books for the ACSM Personal Trainer test... and I am a little confused about where exactly to start. I started reading the "ACSM's Guidelines For Exercise Testing And Prescription", but in the first chapter, I started wondering if maybe I was supposed to start somewhere else, because I feel like there were things in there that I needed some deeper explanation on to understand? Am I supposed to know what MET's and Vo2 Max are and all that from the get go?
I am not a huge health nut or workout guru, but about 4 months ago I got into working out and eating healthy, and made a HUGE change in my life, and really want to help people do the same in their lives. So I might be lacking some of the knowledge that others may have when starting to study for this, but I feel like the books should have all the information I need? Or am I going to need to google things?
Please help... is there a certain book that I should start with that will give me the foundation I need?
