ACE CPT study advice!
The ACE study guide on my website is designed to go along with the fifth addition ACE textbook. It is not a one-stop shop. In fact, I reference a lot of different tables and charts in the book that are extremely important to memorize and learn. This study guide is meant to guide you in the proper direction on what to study because the textbook is so massive.
If you are still are not sure whether or not ACE is the right certification for you, I recommend Taking the quiz to find which certification best fits your training style.
Here is how I recommend you use the study materials on my site:
- The first thing is to take the ACE personal trainer practice test to see your current level of knowledge on the ACE CPT material.
- Then, you should study along with the free ACE personal trainer study guide as you go through the textbook.
- After you finish the ACE personal trainer exam study guide, come back and retake the ACE personal training practice test to see how much better you do.
- Use the ACE flashcards as an additional resource to help cement the material in your head!
- If you want an ACE pass guarantee, check out the team over at Trainer Academy. They offer study material such as a fantastic study guide, five full practice tests, spaced repetition flashcards study, study mnemonics, muscle coloring books, Study blueprints, and study cheat sheets.
