Is NASM CPT textbook required for NASM FNS?
I think I want to take NASM's Fitness Nutrition Specialist course to earn my 2.0 ACE CEU's. But would it be helpful to purchase the NASM CPT textbook to prepare for it? I already own NSCA's Essentials of Personal Training and ACE Personal Trainer Manual.
no it is not; I have the NASM FNS, and it is entirely self-contained.
Unless there's some reason you'd like to have the NASM CPT textbook in your library, I'm on board with the other responses - you really don't need it to prepare for the FNS exam.
Best of luck to you come test day!
