ACSM's Certification Review, 4th Edition

ACSM’s Certification Review is the ultimate resource to help you pass the exam to become a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), Certified Health Fitness Specialist (HFS), or Certified Clinical Exercise Specialist (CES).  Highlights include:

  • Case studies that reinforce concepts, organized by KSA domains
  • Practice Exams that contain questions for each certification level
  • Job Task Analysis tables that provide breakdowns of all the KSAs by certification level and domain


“There is no better review than this one for preparing for ACSM’s certification exams. It is authored by the same experts who create the examinations. It is comprehensive, yet specific to each exam. I would recommend this review both for those taking the exam for the first time and for those taking it to renew certification.”

Weighted Numerical Score: 100 – 5 Stars!

This product definitely prepared me for my certification exam. It is in a similar format, covers similar (if not nearly identical) questions and gives you lots of practice. The only thing I didn’t like about it is that is covers three certifications in one, and although you might need to know the basics of the other areas, I did not use the practice questions for those certifications. It was a little disappointing only using about half the book, but I kept it for future use. It also has a handy appendix section with good forms, protocol and more that I will definitely keep for reference.

You definitely want this book. It gives you a better understand of what your going to need to know and reminds you of things you overlook in the GETP book. Definitely recommend for any certification!

It asked me sample questions that would allow me to be prepared for my test.
I loved the examples and format.
