Welcome to your free online Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) examination resource. I would like to congratulate you for deciding to pursue this prestigious credential! Today, more than 20,000 individuals from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds hold the CSCS. This group includes strength coaches, physical therapists, athletic trainers, physicians, chiropractors, personal trainers, researchers, and educators.
At CSCStestprep.com you can find everything you need to help you earn your CSCS credential. I will provide an examination content review, practice questions, and recommend study guides to help you succeed.
While an exercise science related degree provides the ideal background from which a candidate may begin to prepare for the CSCS exam, a significant amount of candidates pass the exam from non exercise related backgrounds. Luckily, the CSCS exam has an official reference text from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning is the preparation text for the CSCS exam. If you have not done so already, please obtain and read this text. Let me be clear, for most candidates, regardless of academic background, it would be unwise to sit for this exam without first reading Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning.

Best of luck to all the test takers,
