Awesome refresher for renewing my CSSD credentials. Tons of great resources that provided valuable information and acted as a quality refresher. Having a detailed study outline to provide guidance and direction on what to focus on definitely saves a lot of time you might have spent otherwise.

I needed a course that succinctly but effectively provided easy to read, comprehend, and utilize information that would be applicable for the test itself. This was exactly what I needed and I 100% attribute this course to my passing of the CSSD exam.

"MSD study guide had all study material well organized. I was able to read research papers and then read summaries of the research from peers, written in a way that was easy to understand. The references to pages in certain sports nutrition books were helpful in learning the material further. The core courses also expanded my knowledge further in a visual learning way."

Frequently Asked Questions

CSSD Study Guide

Here are the most asked questions we get...

Currently we have 1 final exam with 111 questions. We will soon release a quiz for each section with an anticipated 600+ additional questions alone with another final exam. 

We've had success with both. It is an organized study plan. Study each section (clif notes) with each section and then mark that section "Complete". Once the section exams are in place you will be able to test yourself per section and determine your weaknesses and strengths.

The content is online in a course format. However, there are a LOT of referenced materials and support content that can be downloaded in .pdf format. 

Honestly, we have not tracked that yet. All we asked for from our members was to provide a testimony on their experiences with our CSSD exam resources. We provided a sample of those who declared that this resource greatly helped them pass their CSSD exam. 

We are so confident that you will deem this resource very valuable that we provide a 15 day money back guarentee. We are that confident. Try it out and if it is not a fit just contact us for a full refund.
