Introduction to the ISSA Nutritionist study materials
My Bitmoji counterpart will be walking you through the NASM study guide to make sure that you are on track for passing the NASM exam. Say hello to Tyler-Moji.
Here is the official textbook that you will be using for the nutritionist certification. Make sure you either have the physical textbook in hand or have access to the digital version through your online portal.

ISSA Nutritionist Study Tips
ISSA Nutritionist Practice Tests
The ISSA Nutritionist practice test on this page only includes 30 questions and answers. If you want to get a full grasp of all of the possible questions that can be asked on the exam, I suggest picking up additional practice tests as well. These are incredibly important because they really let you know if you are fully prepared to take the real final exam.
The biggest reason that we see for failure is that they did not take enough practice exams in order to gauge if they were really prepared or not. I suggest the Trainer Academy practice tests as they let you know which chapters/domains you are doing good or bad in and they have a large base of questions for their exams.
ISSA Nutritionist Study of Mnemonics
Fun, interesting and memorable mnemonics are one of the other great ISSA Nutritionist study tips I have for my students. Memorizing difficult topics such as the various micronutrients we take in through the diet, can prove challenging.
Creating interesting and fun mnemonics is the best way to go about memorizing these challenging concepts. This can be helpful in the examples of the various specific nutrition terms and categories we need to know for the certification.
If you are going to create these mnemonics yourselves, try to make them as weird as you possibly can. The weirder the better!
