Great texts to keep for your career, and resources online on Facebook, ACE website and IDEA for helping you understand material. After passing exam, these resources will still be available to you. Keep working on other certifications and certificates for your continuing education credits.

Could have been better but still a good certificate but is all self study so be prepared and also focuses a lot on report and should focus more on exercise

Comprehensive. Many materials. There are many subjects that would be confusing or hard to grasp if I had not been taking college courses along side. It may require extra time to understand important concepts if you are unfamiliar.

Nothing big, to nitpick, I had to drive about 75 miles to get to the nearest testing center. Not so much their fault.

I have nothing but the highest regard for ACE, their assorted certifications + programs, and would highly recommend them to any qualified professional. ACE knows their stuff.
