Summary

This complementary book to ACSM's Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription elaborates on the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) you need to study for any of the American College of Sports Medicine certification exams. It also serves as a valuable professional resource behind the Guidelines. New content includes updated research throughout and a reorganization of the KSAs to correspond with the sixth edition of ACSM's Guidelines. Significantly revised chapters include: Epidemiology of Physical Activity, Physical Fitness, and Selected Chronic Diseases; Diet and Chronic Disease; Medical and Invasive Interventions in the Management of Coronary Artery Disease; Comprehensive Cardiovascular Risk Reduction in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease; Smoking Cessation; Policies and Procedures for Clinical Programs. Both the clinical and health & fitness tracks are covered, in an attractive design that highlights the KSAs for each level of certification. The book features both theoretical and practical physiological concepts and relates the examples to exercise testing, training and programming, thus providing a complete perspective on clinical exercise physiology and fitness. A Brandon-Hill recommended title.
