Featured Book: ACSM’s Clinical Exercise Physiology

Covering more than 35 conditions commonly seen by the clinical exercise physiologist in practice, ACSM’s Clinical Exercise Physiology is one of the most extensive texts in the field. While primarily geared for use in college and university classrooms, it can also be used by those studying for the ACSM Clinical Exercise Physiologist (CEP) exam.


What is Covered?

  • a single chapter dedicated to electrocardiography written for the CEP
  • a chapter covering the fundamental concepts and potential applications of genetics
  • chapters on preparticipation screening, respiratory diseases, cancer, behavioral and mental health, and legal considerations for the CEP
  • chapter review questions and multiple case studies with questions in each chapter


Quiz Me!

ACSM’s Clinical Exercise Physiology includes many online-only resources, including a question bank. The interactive question bank for each chapter includes questions not found in the text. You can select just one or multiple chapters to review the topics you want, select how many questions to include and select Review Mode to see immediate feedback or Test Mode to see the answers after you complete all of the questions.
