    Any last minute advice (CSCS Exam)

    I am taking the CSCS Exam tomorrow at 1:30. Does anyone have any last minute advice? Any and all things are appreciated, as long as they are relevant

    Relax and take your time with each question. Remove the answers you know are wrong first and then whittle to one or two. Some questions may seem daunting when you read them, but when take away the obviously wrong ones it's pretty straightforward.

    If you're taking it on computer you get to check off questions you want to review again. This can be good and bad. Don't overthink things. The test might seem like it's trying to trick you but it isn't.

    If you have the book locked down you'll be fine.

    I left there angry and certain that I"d failed at least the science portion. I ended up not only passing but doing better on the science part.

    Remember the worst case scenario is that you have to take it again. If you studied the book front to back, took a few practice exams, then you'll do fine.

    The science half is pretty much the same as the CPT exam (which you seem to have) and is fairly basic

    The Practical portion you have to remember is mostly NSCA opinion and almost everything can be argued. A lot of questions on how to not kill your clients (hydration, temperature, ect)

    I got a decent score on the CPT and absolutely destroyed the CSCS, so even though its longer and has a higher fail rate some people find it easier
