I’m in the process of studying for the CES exam and, for those who have already taken it, I would like some suggestions of what to focus on with my studies. Right now, I’m focusing on making sure I understand the compensations and rational for what to inhibit/activate. Any other suggestions? Should I be working on memorizing muscle actions, origins, insertions, etc?
Hi everyone! I’m not skilled in this question but I completely agree with Martin Petrofes. Also, information about how many pages is 3000 words at https://studymoose.com/how-many-pages-is-3000-words could be useful for studying for the NASM CES exam. This should help a lot.
Here is a study guide created specifically for the NASM CES for anyone else looking for really great study resources:
Here is an interview I did with someone who passed the NASM test. Some of her insights may help you.
I have this certification. From the best of my recollection, your focus on understanding compensations and the rationales for it are more important than to memorize which muscle attaches to which part of the bone. You should have internalized, though, that muscles can operate in different ways, depending on the action.
Good luck with your exam.
