GIFTED Academics did an amazing job making 24 chapters of material digestible & easy to understand. Each week I was given material to go through at my own pace & practice questions to test my knowledge. This helped me tremendously with understanding a number of different topics & the specific verbiage that the CSCS uses.

GIFTED Academics has put together a structured course with video lectures, chapter outlines, review questions, and mock exams. I knew I was prepared going into the exam and passed both sections with flying colors. Whether you have an exercise physiology background or not, I highly recommend the GIFTED Academics course!

I scored an 86 on the foundations exam and an 85 on the applied exam, and I would not have passed had it not been for this awesome course. It does not get any better than GIFTED Academics when it comes to Certification Prep!
