NASM study tips
Additional NASM CNC practice tests
one of the most important things for making sure that you are 100% ready for the final exam is to take practice exams. Practice exams help you gauge whether or not you are fully prepared.
I suggest taking at least one or two additional full practice exams. It is better safe than sorry.
NASM CNC spaced repetition flashcards
old-fashioned flashcards work well, but not nearly as well as spaced repetition studying. Basically, spaced repetition studying can be done using an application that can determine which cards are easy for you and which cards are hard for you.
This will save you a ton of time because it will show you your easy cards with less frequency while showing you are more difficult cards more frequently.
This will help you focus on your difficult areas while not wasting time on the information that you already know.
NASM CNC study mnemonics
study mnemonics come in handy for difficult to memorize concepts or vocabulary. Creating a back story to the information you are learning is a great way to keep the information in your long-term memory storage.
The funnier and weirder you can make these mnemonics the better. Try to include as many weird animals, aliens, unicorns etc. The more you can imagine a crazy story to go along with your memorization mnemonics, the longer you can guarantee that you will memorize it.
