Challenging exam but prep course helped
I just passed the ACSM Exam last week and it was fairly challenging even with the study materials from ACSM and having prepared for nine months. I took the workshop in June which was a great help as well.
I have been in the personal training/fitness business since 1986 and have been certified for years with NETA. My employer required this certification and I wanted to have it because of the good reputation ACSM has and also that there is always more to learn in this business.
The Exam Prep Course on this site was great in adding the final touches to my studies and I do think it was a great value. I would definitely recommend it to others preparing for this exam. Bear in mind the exam is a different one each time and so no two exams are the same (different questions). And many questions appear to have several correct answers which can be tricky but take your time and really think each one out - plenty of time is offered and you can mark questions for review to go back to at the end.
I must also add that there was some material which was not included in the study guides from the workshop so really check out the texts in detail since it's hard to say what exactly will be on the test when you take it. It is well worth the effort in my opinion.
