Passed ACSM exam using just Katie's prep course
Hi just wanted to write and say thanks on producing your exam prep course. I passed the ACSM personal trainer exam today, first go!
I couldn't afford the ACSM study guides or any other course materials - all I used was your prep course, I practiced the 9 day course over and over for a month, then another week where I did the whole 9 day course once a day every day.
When I put in a wrong answer your course told me the correct answer which i then remembered, so it became faster to go through the exams, if there was points I didn't understand - for instance lot's of medical lingo used i just googled the words and learned that way i then did the final exam everyday for another week.
Once I could complete all 9 exams plus the final exam and get 100% pass rate i took the test, i was nervous to be honest, as i hadn't bought the study guides - but your prep course was great.
i must point out I've been into sports all my adult life - frequently reading material on-line, and for many years I subscribed to a sports science journal, so my background knowledge was already very high compared to Jo public, even so the 'medical lingo' e.g. myocardal farcation (instead of 'heart attack) can be intimidating.
The prep course was invaluable.
