CSCS Practice Test

If you are looking for material to prepare you for this exam, our free CSCS practice test will test you over all of the subjects on the exam. From the wording to the difficulty of each question, our practice test will simulate the CSCS test. This allows you to see exactly where you are at in your preparation. What about the layout of the exam? Let’s take a look. The complete written examination contains 190 scored multiple-choice questions and 30 non-scored multiple-choice questions. These non-scored questions are trial questions that will not count for or against your final score. The CSCS certification is broken into two subsections with different time limits.

The first NSCA CSCS exam section covers the scientific foundations of exercise sciences. This subsection contains 80 scored questions and 15 non-scored questions that must be completed in 1 1/2 hours. The second subsection covers practical and applied knowledge over strength and conditioning. This section has 110 scored questions and 15 non-scored questions that must be completed in 2 1/2 hours. The raw score (or number of correctly answered questions) is turned into a scaled score which must then reach the minimum scaled score of 70 for each exam. With this in mind, gear your study toward these subjects for proper preparation.
