NASM DVD question

by Ian
(Brooklyn, NY USA)

OK, So I'm doing the self study thing (getting my materials dirt cheap on ebay, I guess that could be a tip), which has been going pretty good so far. However, as might be expected there is a lack of guidance by going the self study route and I really wanna make sure that I'm getting everything that I need from my materials.

Will someone please give me the scoop on this DVD that they seem to keep shrouded in such mystery. A lot of people say that they've watched it, and all the official NASM test prep literature recommends it (and why wouldn't they at $99 a pop) but that about all the info I can ever seem to find.

What exactly is on it? It it necessary or even useful? I'm only gonna spring for it if I know for sure that it will help me. If it just a reiteration of what I'm reading in the book, then forget it. One person who posted on here said that there weren't even animations showing the muscular anatomy in motion (which would have indeed been helpful). If that's NOT on it, then what the heck is?

Thanks so much,

I wouldn't spend the money again on the DVD's

Probably not worth the money..everything you need is in the book and the study guide.

DVD is not worth it.

I recently took and passed the NASM CPT test. I also chose to go the self study route.If you have the book, there is really no need to get the DVD. I made the mistake of purchasing one of those official NASM study kits. I wish I knew about this site before purchasing the study materials. All you need is the NASM CPT book. The DVD is basically the CPT book with narration; it covers everything you read in the book, nothing more.

I borrowed a set of NASM DVD's from a friend. The set includes 7 dvd's. The copyright date at the end of the videos says 2004. The dvd's appear to follow the third edition text book. Is there a later edition set of dvd's?

Same as the book

From what I can tell so far, the dvds are just a recorded class with instructors teaching the chapters of the book. I find it easier to just read and comprehend than listen to the instructors. The only thing you miss out on by not getting the dvds is some of the most spectacularly bad 90's infomercial music I have ever heard. The whole thing feels very dated, it's like a tim and eric sketch.
