    The official NASM CES study guide thread

    I find this to be much more difficult than the CPT, yet we can take the test at home on our computers, open book unlike the CPT. Below are most questions from the practice exam with the correct answer and the page # where the answer can be found. Some questions I didn't include because they were from the CPT and i knew them easy instantly after reading question. Feel free to add other study aids in this thread....

    I've read the book, gone over all these questions and just started reviewed the chapter 2 eccentric/concentric/isometric actions of all muscles (gone through lower leg, quads, hams) and i think i would fail this test w/o a book at the moment.

    The practice test really doesn't have any questions regarding ROM assessments and manual strength assessments...don't really know why they were included if we have to have some type of separate license to perform the MMT. If practice test has 0 questions on them i can't imagine the real test would have much more.

    no exp with PES...most my clients so far have been weight loss, i haven't gotten to the athletes yet so i figured CES was more appropriate.

    upping thread, has to be more people studying for ces than just me. not nearly as many resources as the CPT

    Just ordered my study materials, looking forward to getting going on this, so thanks a lot for the thread. I found a guy that made flashcards for the test online, maybe you can confirm the accuracy. I'll do the same when I get my materials next week.

    Can't post links yet so just search google "nasm ces flashcards" and its the quizlet link.

    When do you plan on taking the exam? I'll definitely contribute what I can as I start studying.

    I think I could pass the test now if i took it especially considering its an open book test for anything you have trouble with. I could easily find the eccentric/concentric actions of muscles with my book (there will probably be a lot of these questions on the test) but I'm trying to learn them all on my own. Its very difficult b/c there are so many muscles to remember, i'm also trying to learn the locations of each.

    The above are notecards for the practice exam. I have until the end of February to take the exam and I really want to know the material a little better than I do now. I think with the test still lingering I'm more inclined to study hard than if I were already certified as a CES so i'm holding off on the test.

    Also, i posted on NASM's facebook and they told me we will NOT be tested on the manual muscle testing & ROM chapters. That is out of the scope of practice for a personal trainer and i guess people from many other professions go through the CES course. We can't use the MMT or ROM tests unless we're licensed so you don't really need to focus hard on those two chapters.

    I'm spending most my time on concentric/isometric actions (eccentric actions are simply the opposite of concentric)....and i'm sure there will be plenty of questions on the various subsystems lateral, deep longitudinal, posterior/anterior oblique. So learn the muscles of those subsystems and what they do

    Thanks for the input man I really appreciate it. I just got my book today and yea it looks like learning every action and the muscles engaged is going to be very tedious to remember. Yea of course we could just have the book open when we take the test, but that kind of defeats the purpose of paying $600+ to be a "Corrective Exercise Specialist". I think I will take a similar approach you did, reading the book in its entirety firstly and then reviewing as needed. I'm glad to hear you felt Chapter 2 requires extra review, I'm reading it now and was starting to get a little overwhelmed, but this one stood out as a tougher chapter to you? Hopefully they aren't all this thick with information.

    I don't have my NASM CPT, instead I have NESTA and ACE, so I can already tell it is going to make things a bit harder. My goal is to take the test in 20 days, so looks like I'm gonna be cramming pretty damn hard. If i have any tips along the way I will definitely share them here, and thanks again for the info.

    yeah, i don't think you'll be able to pass the test in 20 days w/o the nasm cpt cause lots of the information i think is assumed you already went through the cpt course. Some information i recall is left out that i already knew from CPT.

    Also chapter 2 after you read the book will be easier to go back to once you read the whole book and familiarize yourself w/ terminology.

    deep longitudinal subsystem, anterior oblique, etc was a foreign language to me first time around but now i get it. I'd also say the online presentations are better w/ CES than CPT. More live instructors talking, more interactive quizzes, etc

    I just ordered the course a couple weeks ago. I've flipped through the book a little but my strategy is to first watch all the online videos before reading. The videos in many ways aren't as complete as the book but it's giving me a basic overview so when I start reading, I have something to go on which will allow me to read through it much faster and understand it better. After reading the book I'll probably go back over the videos and then take the exam.

    I was really tempted to just take the exam as soon as I got the course since it says you have three tries and I sailed through CPT but I fear too that if I pass, it will take the incentive away to really dig in deep. I find this stuff interesting and I really want to take it seriously.

    Question-has anyone here passed this and gone further into corrective exercise? I'm curious what a next level course would be for more depth?

    Hello, I just joined this board because I wanted to share my experience with the personal training. You see, I used the information in my study for the CPT test, which I passed a couple of weeks ago. Thanks to all who post useful information to help others.

    I'm now studying for the CES. It's surprising that it's online, open book. There does not appear to be much CES study material as you'll find for CPT. But here's a book that I used and it's great for explaining muscle movement, "Fitness Professionals' Guide to Musculoskeletal Anatomy and Human Movement." There's also a companion CD, Exercise Explorer. However, it's the Academic version. The trainer's version is great not only as a learning tool, but for use with creating client programs. Check out healthylearning.com.

    I'll keep posting on my progress and any tips to help others.

    Thanks and Cheers

    I'm so sorry if this has already been asked, but I just found this thread. Are these questions similar to questions on the CES exam? Unfortunately, my book just arrived, and I have until this weekend to learn (as best as possible) and pass the CES exam. I do plan to spend more time learning the material properly after this weekend, but for now, I really need to pass the exam. Any help would by greatly appreciated!

    Currently studying for this too. I will be putting out a exam prep for the iphone/ipad once I pass (like I did for cpt). OP if you are interested in helping a bit send me a pm so we can work something out.

    This weekend is a fast if they had this test in a testing center no way you would pass. The material is more difficult then the CPT and I will guess you will still have a difficult time passing even with an open book. But, on a lighter side being you can take the test three times you probably will pass. There is an application also on the CES on android and iphone which is ok and a few of the question or on the test. Good luck

    Just do as much as you can with what you have. Study study study. Just a tip though- you have three chances at the CES exam. The questions do not change from exam to exam. If you fail the first time, the test will be the exact same the second time through. If you wanted to cheat(not really advising) it would be easy to take the time to write down every single question and find the answers. Might take an hour or two, but it'll be a guaranteed way to pass the test. On a side note, the CES book is filled with a lot of good information, and unlike the CPT book, can actually be considered worth buying.

    I hear what you're saying. I really do want to learn the info., I just have to "be" certified in this by Monday. My book arrived today, and I do plan on learning all of it...just have to get over this untimely hurdle first.

    Thank you kindly for the response.

    No worries. If you have any other questions go for it. I won't lie, it's a little challenging, but you'll be fine if you study. Write down a ton of notes and keep them organized so you can use them during the exam. You have a good amount of time to complete it, just be careful of wasting time on to many questions. Don't get hung up!

    Before I say anything else, good luck and it is great that everyone is so helpful. HOWEVER, people really should not be copying and pasting, especially verbatim, any test questions and answers anywhere...at all! It is great to help people, and I definitely support doing so, but anything more than general tips/help/assistance/whatever is going against the contract you signed when you agreed to take any NASM exam or materials.

    The NASM material does clearly state that you are not allowed to do what is done pretty commonly around here. I'm sure no one over at NASM is going to come on here and file a lawsuit against anyone or anything but I am also pretty sure they would be within their rights to do so.

    Just a cautionary word.
    Again, good luck.

    Hi

    I am thinking to do CES.

    At this point my doubt is what is the best option the NASM offer Self-Study? Self-Study with Workshop? CES Online Classroom? or CES All Acess?

    Can anyone give me a tip?

    Thanks for all support

    I believe it depends on your individual learning style. Personally, I learn better in a classroom setting where I can ask an instructor questions, listen to what others have to say, figure out new ways to comprehend material, get a better understanding of what is actually important (instructors tend to make their students focus on the most important info) etc. If you are not forced into self study, I would go with online classroom.
    If you are currently in a situation where time is a precious commodity, self study may be the best, and maybe the only, option.

    I'm getting ready to take my CES test in the next couple days. Passed my CPT test in May and go a job within a week. I'm also studying senior fitness and nutrition.

    I'm going to look into PES after I finish the ones I already paid for.

    Thanks for the post Mr Poe

After, many months I am just starting to know the material well. Also, alot easier if you can apply it to clients. Are you currently working or training anybody? Will sure help. good luck in your career.
