5.0 out of 5 stars useful resource June 2, 2008
Format:Spiral-bound
This book appears to be a pretty darn good resource for fitness prescription and testing. I have read much of it and it is pretty well written and quite clinical. So if that's what you need, then this book is it.
However, I was intending to get books to study for the ACSM Personal Trainer certification. This is NOT the book for that. Now granted, they recommend this book on their website, and it may be helpful, but the intended primary study source is the ACSM's resources for the personal trainer...book. So if that's what you are trying to do (like i was) then get that book, not this one. If you want a bunch of cool knowledge about exercise prescription, then this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory for the exercise professional November 15, 2007
By Jack
Format:Spiral-bound
Has all the knowledge you need to evaluate, test, and retest your client, patient, or subject. If you don't have this book (or a previous version of it) and are not following the procedures in this handbook...you're not helping your client as well as you can.

An excellent resource for any Personal Trainer. I carry mine with me every time I see a client. It's absolutely packed with excellent information. As an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, I have found this book one of the best they offer and one of the best resources I've had as a Trainer overall.
