This book is the primary resource for ACSM certification. The newest edition is much more user friendly than previous editions and has some important changes in guidelines and protocols. I was studying for ACSM HFS cert for about 3 months with the previous edition but was informed at a ACSM workshop that I would need to purchase this edition because of the changes in the info. I got this resource only several weeks before sitting for my certification. I PASSED!! I felt well prepared and scored well.

This is a book used for ACSM certification. It's a great resource, and is a well organized text that has clinically validated prescriptions for training programs. It's actually worth the cost as a supplement for broadening the scope of your knowledge, so I highly recommend this!

Far more useful than its companion, the ACSM's guidelines book. Save your money and only buy this one, because it clarifies the other book and goes into greater depth. I shouldn't have bought both, I should have only bought this one, because the other book is just a streamlined version of this.

Can't beat the price- 2009 was only 5 years ago, fundamentals don't change that soon. That said, I'm not studying for an exam or college course, I wanted to learn more about fitness assessment and exercise prescription.

Take note that this book has dual usage for HFS testing and CES testing. Questions are in bold at the beginings of additional content and to maximize study habits, read the bolded items.
