NCSF is an organization that provides a good, thorough program. They offer a program that ensures you know a great deal about industry. The material can be tricky, but if you are taking the program in a class, you should be able to follow along just fine.

NCSF is a complete course that is standard of most PT Certification Courses. Some of the information gets very technical however.
The best part of NCSF is the hands-on workshops. If you're taking the NCSF test for personal training I recommend going to one of the workshops.
