How Malik the Kin’s RKin Exam Prep Course Helps Me Study

Guest blog post written by Seneca Mathai, a new kinesiology graduate from York University. Seneca is looking forward to writing the RKin exam this September and jumping into her kinesiology career with two feet!

During my last year of university, I was worried. How will I study for the R.Kin exam? I was even more concerned after going through the extensive list of textbooks suggested by the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario to help me with my preparation for the exam! During this time, I got to meet Angela and Malik and was introduced to Malik’s Malik the Kin’s RKin Exam Prep Course.

By joining this course, I was welcomed into a supportive community that was invested in my success. The course content was narrowed down to the important material that is testable on the exam. And was a great refresher to the courses that I took in university.

In addition to what I learnt in university, this course equipped me with knowledge that I previously had not acquired. For example, kinesiology practice standards and guidelines were not covered by my university.

The best part of Malik the Kin’s RKin Exam Prep Course for me was the support that I received whilst taking this course, I was not on this journey alone.

The support that I received whilst taking this course was tremendous.

Here are some of the ways that Malik the Kin’s RKin Exam Prep Course has helped me study for the exam:

  • The bi-weekly Meet Ups are a great opportunity to get your questions answered, go through case studies and questions, meet others in the course and to talk to Malik and Angela who are really supportive and have a wealth of information, always ready to answer any question! If you can’t make it to a session, don’t worry, every Meet Up is recorded and posted in the course library for future reference.
  • The suggested weekly modules were a great help in going through the content as the material was split into smaller portions which made it easier to study.
  • Having videos/lectures on every topic was great for me as this helped me to learn the content better as I was able to read the content and listen to the content as well, catering for the varying learning styles.
  • The Kin Knowledge Packages were concise documents that were great resources to have as refreshers for what was previously learnt. These Packages contained all of the topics I needed to study ranging from math tips to anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, nutrition and more.

    Personally, having the Kin Knowledge Packages was a game changer as it meant that I didn’t have to read through the extensive list of suggested textbooks, everything was wonderfully summarized.

  • The workbook was a great asset to the course as this helped me to take down notes and engage with the content as I was going through the material. This also was a great review document after completion as it captured the important portions concisely.
  • The Facebook group was a great place to post any questions, which were answered in a very timely manner. This was also a great way to connect with others who are also in the course
  • There were other resources that were included in the prep course that helped including practice quizzes and exams, math tips and tricks, flashcards, anatomy and evaluation resources and resources from the College of the Kinesiologists of Ontario, etc.

These are just some of the ways by which Malik the Kin’s RKin Exam Prep Course has aided and supported me as I prepared for the exam. I am confident about writing the R.Kin exam after taking this course.

Wishing you ALL THE BEST if you are getting ready to write the RKin Exam Prep Course too!
