just passed ACSM 3/1/2012
I dont usually write out comments on websites but I personally felt this was a must. I just passed my ACSM CPT test today 3/1/2012. I must say this test is insanely hard but doable. I must give a majority of my credit for passing to this website and its practice tests. To anyone who is debating on paying the $30 for this websites tests. DONT! Take it from me firsthand, this websites practice exams/tests helped me tremendously. I have been studying the material from the ACSM website for months when I decided to purchase the tests from this site and I remember more questions being on the exam from this website than the ACSM study guide. Some things I do remember:
-Know BMI. (everything from how to calculate to range of obesity)
-Know sit and reach test and scores,
-Muscle actions while running( eccentric , concentric)
-Rotator cuff muscles
-Risk stratisfaction(at least 15-20 questions on this) know it well!
-Behavior models. Actually quite a few questions on this. more than i anticipated
-Planes of the body. What plane does a lunge occur in etc...
-Only a few questions on muscles. Kinda sad since i studied muscle groups etc.
-Know how to calculate THR HRM HRR. And actually know the formulas. 2 questions asking what the actual formula was. 220-Age Etc
I can only remember a few of the items but overall my best advice is to purchase the tests from this site. Trust me the $30 is worth it because this test is no joke. It is extremely hard but with the tests from this site it is highly doable!
