Answered by Philip Balloons on Aug 15, 2017

Oh hi Robert, Oh going for the CSCS! That's a big one yet you can do it. I've been quite impressed with the amount of CSCS study guides many libraries have.

4 Answers | Asked by Delmar Carey on Jul 23, 2017

Answered by Philip Balloons on Aug 07, 2017

The big thing is finding you target audience. Who do you want to speak to? Then how do you want to come across? Some writers scratch the surface where others get deep with their topics.
