What is a Cheat Sheet?
A cheat sheet is a valuable study and test exam prep resource, and for some certification exams, it is a good test-taking resource in the case of an open-book exam.
The cheat sheet is a one-sheet document that holds all of the most important information and the information that may be hard to remember. It is all held on one page so that it is easier to find; there’s no flipping through pages to get to the material you need.
The PTPioneer cheat sheet can give good ideas for your own version of a cheat sheet, as there is a small chance we do not cover the exact materials that every learner needs, and they can make their own document and pick and choose some of the PTPioneer information if needed.
Cheat sheets are proven very useful in your studies, as not only do you memorize where to find the exercise science information quickly, but the act of memorizing their location activates the memory in ways that benefit your overall learning.
The cheat sheet is the last of our four main types of study materials outside of the study plan, which organizes them.
The cheat sheet partners well with the other American College of Sports Medicine personal training test preparation materials, like the study hub chapters, practice personal trainer exams, and flashcards. All of these work to cut down your overall study time.
Typically, we see the best use of the study guide’s cheat sheet for ACSM exam prep as a tool during practice test questions and just prior to final certification testing to memorize the right materials.
Where does this PTPioneer Cheat Sheet come from?
The cheat sheet that is used here on PTPioneer for the ACSM study plan actually comes from an affiliated website, Trainer Academy, that makes premium study materials.
They make study materials for all of the top organizations and the most popular fitness certifications, like the ACSM CPT, which we cover for free here.
The premium study materials are much more thorough and intensive, and they include a pass guarantee, where you would get your money back if you happen to not pass the certification exam.
This is a great option for learners that wish to have the most study materials that are offered for online study, and it comes with some great deals on their prices.
Trainer Academy also offers multiple tiers of packages, so it is important you choose the best one for what you need.
Cheat Sheet Study Implementation
To properly utilize the cheat sheet based on our recommendations, it is important to check through the study plan page and the associated PDF download to see when and how it is best to use the Cheat Sheet.
If you are using the 4-week study plan, then you will be looking at the cheat sheet to locate the important topics in the ACSM-certified personal trainer chapters as soon as you complete chapters during the week.
There will be some crossover between the flashcards and the cheat sheet, but having different ways to view these most important topics will help with answering exam questions in our practice exam and, eventually, the ACSM CPT exam.
For the 3-month study plan, the cheat sheet comes in later in the plan, toward the end. It is familiarized before taking the practice tests again and should be able to help with those practice questions as you go through them, readying for the final exam.
Both the 6-month and 1-year study plans have the cheat sheet at the end of their last months. This is because they are always viewed as most helpful when taking practice exams, and that is when they are recommended in the study plans.
For all of these ACSM resources that are offered on PTPioneer for the CPT certification, the goal should be familiarized with every aspect within the downloadable guides.
The PTPioneer ACSM study guide cheat sheets are jam-packed and full of information, which serves as a form of exam content outline.
Ideally, learners should not utilize the cheat sheet on their first attempt at our ACSM certification practice fitness assessment.
After you familiarize yourself with the cheat sheet, you should keep it handy during your personal trainer certification practice test attempts and only use it when you can’t think of the answer to a test.
You should aim not to rely too greatly on this cheat sheet, as that can hinder your learning and make the cheat sheet more of a crutch you rely on. This would only hurt you on the inevitable real exam after test prep is done.
