Just Passed ACSM with a 593

by lisa

I just wanted to let you know that I passed the ACSM test. It took me just under the 2.5 hours alotted. I was pleased I purchased your test prep from this website, I do believe that it helped out. I also purchased the ACSM practice test from the ACSM website and it was a complete joke. Not only were none of the questions on the test it was poorly set up and cost $50.

I would def recommend your prep test as opposed to acsm's. I did think acsm is more technical as far as language goes, however yours really does give an organized jist of the content.

The test was extremely hard, I have my bachelors in Kinesiology; so I have taken my fair share of a&p, biomechanics, exercise physiology, nutrition, etc.... classes and this test was much tougher than any test I have EVER taken. I studied for at least 1 hour a day for a month straight.

Anyhow not to scare people but just be prepared since it does cost so much $$ to take and retake.

I would recommend really knowing your risk stratifications, muscles of rotator cuff & what they do, met-vo2 max equation, Heart rate reserve equation, what the Borg scale measures and what the #'s mean, how to calculate BMI & what the #'s mean, PNF, Isokinetic, and Isometric stretching, food pyramid info as far as how much fat we need in our diet, how many kcalories in a lb, what muscle aids in posture( erector spinae), Par Q test, informed consent, alot of questions on spotting with barbells, concentric, eccentric, hip flexion and what causes it, what joint makes the most movements, diff b/w skeletal and muscular tissue,calculation for waist circumferce, skin fold sites and which ones use a diagonal measurement, I wish I could remember more but all I can say is Study

I think I may have wasted my time on knowing every muscle, bone, joint, type of joint anatomical terms and I really should've paid more attention to exercise RX, human behavior, and safety and injury prevention. Good luck
BTW I passed on my 1st try so maybe why I didn't pass w/ flying colors
