Best advice I can give is don't go through the study material with the intent of memorizing it and definitely don't gloss over the information because of "years of experience". Relate the articles and videos to members at your gym that you see and coach everyday and the application of the information is what will help you get through the exam.
Thanks for the info. And congratulations on passing.
As I work my way through the materials I can clearly see your point--it is not about memorizing information, it is about thoroughly knowing and understanding the material first--but more importantly being able to demonstrate you can actually apply that knowledge.
