This book is a great review of all the information I learned in school 20 some years ago...so a review was needed! It was a little difficult to navigate the online study stuff. I couldn't find the pretest until I had opened the test already. I also thought my CEUs would be directly added to NSCA but so far have not been and I had to add them in myself. This was also a great value for the amount of CEUs I received for this course!
