Format: Paperback
This is a very reliable resource for anyone interesting in taking the ACSM/HFI Exam. I used this resource as one of my major resources for preparing for the HFI Exam in which I passed today......yeah baby!!!! It covers everything presented in the exam but by all means should not be your only resource for preparing for the exam. It has 12 chapters in the review book followed by review questions at the end of each chapter and two comprehensive exams at the end of the book which were helpful. Good luck for those studying for the exam!!!!!!

I purchased this review thinking it was a primary source for the ACSM PT cert. It isn't. They mention it on the ACSM website. The first book they mention (ACSM's resources for the personal trainer...) is the actual primary resource. I wanted to get this book because it was cheaper and did not have the idiotic looking picture on the front like the "resources" book does. Then I had to spend more money to go back and get the dumb-looking resources book. Apparently the book is intended for other certifications in particular like exercise testing and maybe even the group fitness teaching cert. So as for my recommendation, if you are studying for the PT certification and have some background that makes you comfortable with fitness/health knowledge and you just want to know what ACSM wants you to know to pass the test, then get the "resources" book only and save the money on this one (BTW, I have not taken the test yet so that isn't a fully tested recommendation). If you are afraid of not passing, then this study material may be helpful to you.

The book is very helpful in studying for the ACSM Exercise Specialist Exam. Chapter quizzes with answers and explanations are great!

The ACSM certification review is amazing to refresh your memory (or learn how the ACSM test is based) to build you up for your big test.
Lots of info to absorb,and for me its more of a reminder for what i learned over the past year (graduated fitness technician woot!).
But definately reccomend it.
