Sport and Exercise Physiology Testing Guidelines: The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences Guide
Edward M. Winter
Routledge, 2007 - Medical - 364 pages
Sport and exercise physiologists are called upon to carry out physiological assessments that have proven validity and reliability, both in sport-specific and health-related contexts. A wide variety of test protocols have been developed and refined. This book is a comprehensive guide to these protocols and to the key issues relating to physiological testing.
Volume I covers sport-specific testing, and Volume II covers clinical and exercise specific testing.
With contributions from leading specialist sport, exercise and clincial physiologists, and covering a wide range of mainstream sports, special populations, and ethical, practical and methodological issues, these volumes represent an essential resource for sport-specific and clinical exercise testing in both research and applied settings.

This is a very well published book with various authors presenting their expert advice on various topics via research experience. The book covers everything from ethics to sport-specific testing batteries of tests.
I would highly recommend this book to undergraduate students wanting to understand the backbone of sport-specific physiological testing, though referencing the book would not suffice in a thesis or lab report.
BASES have done a very thorough job! Well done to them.
