CSCS Practice Exam – Volume 2

Ah, finally I get to do something more substantial.  The practice exams are great, and are a great way to break up studying.  After completing practice exam volume 1 near the start of this journey, I spent a lot of time and published a lot of posts through my review process.  To be honest creating a post on study topics isn’t the best way for me to study.  Like I said previously, I study best by understanding underlying principles and extrapolating from the principles and creating blog posts isn’t necessarily conducive to that.  So it’s good to break up the studying with a re-evaluation, which is why I’m excited to bring you the results of CSCS Practice Exam – Volume 2!

notbad

Not bad for a whole new set of questions and a less-than optimal study method as I described above.  I regressed on the first section, Exercise Science though 13/20 and 14/20 is within statistical noise.  I also didn’t guess as often this time around.  When I came across questions that I really had no idea, I simply left them blank.  Organization and Management is still the bane of my existence, and eventually I will have to do those chapters proper justice…but being a procrastinator at heart I will leave that boring topic until the very end.

Funny: Despite having written a whole post on levers I still got stumped by one of those questions, partially because I wasn’t sure between 2nd and 3rd class levers (I drew them out, but forgot which was which) and partly because a couple of the movements described in the question were hard to identify.  I think this illustrates the importance of using mnemonics for memorizing the lever types, and then brushing up on some basic movements and identifying the fulcrum, load, and forces involved.

Do you remember your lever classes?  If not, brush up here.
