Studying NASM Flashcards is proven to be one of the greatest forms of studying, especially in the case of new materials that include large sets of terms and topics.
Studying for the NASM CPT requires some time spent memorizing topics and terms in short bursts on a regular basis. Every chapter has its own set of terms and definitions, and that makes flashcards extremely beneficial.
Even for fitness professionals that already have a good grasp on exercise science terms, flashcard study for the NASM certified personal trainer certification can be very beneficial with topics like the OPT model program design, biomechanics, exercise technique, client relations, and nutritional concepts, which differ ever so slightly from other organizations.
This exemplifies why this form of study can be very beneficial to learners.
While any form of flashcard study is going to give improvements in many ways, the best form of flashcard study is going to objectively be a spaced-repetition study system.
As this is a free study system, it is not offered on PTPioneer, as it is too intensive. But, the best premium study organizations, like Trainer Academy, offer spaced-repetition study for their flashcard systems.
On top of this revolutionary flashcard study system, Trainer Academy also offers a money-back guarantee.
When it comes to exam prep, study guides, and practice tests, in general, Trainer Academy is your best option.
The National Academy of Sports Medicine does not offer any form of flashcard study within their online study portal, and instead, you must either make your own or use an outside resource.
In case you missed it, make sure you check out all of the flashcard plugins for each of the 23 chapters in the NASM 7th edition at the top of the page just after the study hub.
Each chapter of flashcards highlights the terms and topics that need to be studied within each chapter.
Domains of Study
NASM breaks down its test questions and their general study into 6 domains, or sections, which include the following domains:
- Domain 1: Professional Development and Responsibility (Chapters 1 and 2)
- Domain 2: Client Relations and Behavioral Coaching (Chapters 3 and 4)
- Domain 3: Basic and Applied Sciences and Nutritional Concepts (Chapters 5 – 10
- Domain 4: Assessment (Chapters 11 and 12)
- Domain 5: Exercise Technique and Training Instruction (Chapters 13 – 20)
- Domain 6: Program Design (Chapters 21 – 23)
It is good to know the domains of study, as well as the chapters contained within each of the domains.
When you take the domain quizzes or the NASM practice test and notice that you are struggling with some of the materials more than others, it is good to note which chapters are needed to be studied and focus on them here on the flashcard page.
Some chapters and domains will have harder to memorize materials than others, so it will be important to note all of this throughout your studies and return to the appropriate materials.
Make sure to pair the missed questions in the PTPioneer practice exams and the chapters of the NASM CPT study guide for your best chance on the final personal trainer exam.
Studying flashcards is not only one of the more popular study options but also one of the easiest. It really just requires a set of cards of meaningful terms and topics, and the willpower to study.
The main idea behind implementing flashcards is that short bursts of study done on a regular basis will allow for easy memorization of the materials.
By studying nearly every day, you will also work on creating a lasting study habit that will help you with just about anything you study for in the future.
Flashcards present a word or words and allow you to either think of the answer or think of associated topics to reach the answer or definition.
They are extremely beneficial in studying all types of materials.
The PTPioneer chapter flashcards below are curated to contain the most important information that can be studied in this flashcard format for each and every chapter. They will encompass what I view as the most important information.
If the flashcard set doesn’t have the term or topic that you most struggle with, then it can be very beneficial to try and do the same form of studying on your own by writing down the terms.
Some researchers even claim that studying is enhanced when you physically write or type the cards yourself.
If you notice yourself getting a lot of value from the flashcards, then perhaps it is best to also try writing them down in a journal as another way to enhance the study even more.
Again, it is also about creating good study habits for your future as a learner.
Good luck with your studies, and if you are following the NASM study hub in order, then make sure to go next to the cheat sheet page.
