    I understand that through ACE we should be able to train any and all clients, however, I feel that childhood Obesity should be covered through a childhood development course

    I enjoyed this portion of the course; however, quite a few of the question/answers on the quiz contradicted the reading.

    The book seems useful but yet again the test was too easy. However I did answer two questions incorrectly but was unable to find out the correct answer from the test score sheet afterwards. This would be a good addition.

    This course has helped me to encourage positive changes in my children's school related to activities that can help reduce the risk of obesity and other diseases. Much of the research cited can help others working to improve physical activity in children and argue to create policy change.

    As said with another review I read, some of the questions had multiple answers as far as the material in the book, there was no one correct answer. I chose one of the 4 that was in fact correct, but got it wrong anyway.

    Really liked it. The appendixes in the back of the book really helped.

    This book had a number of good ideas on how to understand the issues related to working with children in a health and fitness setting. Nothing too far past common sense, but now I have a better idea on what limits kids have, and what is appropriate for them.

    The information was very informative. But unfortunately that failed to translate to the quiz. there were several instances of incomplete questions, typos, as well as 3 questions where the correct answers were not provided. I missed only those three.
