Absolutely true, Kevin. When gym members came to me for bf testing, they consistently got higher readings than from my coworker because of one simple reason, I went by the book. Sure, it's more flattering to come out lower, but it's more important to be honest with yourself. Was I more accurate than my coworker when it came to bf testing? Absolutely! Would the gym members think so? Probably not.
