One of the reasons I picked up “Advanced Fitness Assessment” was because it’s an updated version of a textbook I used when studying exercise physiology at my undergrad uni. (It was a graduate level class). I’ve found it to be a thorough resource on the topic of exercise prescription, and one that immensely helped me (even in previous versions) study for my respective certification. The illustrations, examples, topic expansion all were very clear cut, accessible, and provided a text I know I will use as a reference for years to come. Recommended for those studying for American College of Sports Medicine certification or those who are interested in exercise prescription, sports medicine, or exercise as medicine concepts.

Overall score: 4.5/5 stars.
