be bold but not bully;
be thoughtful but not lazy;
be humble but not timid;
be proud but not arrogant;
have humor, but without folly."

NAB Review for NAB RC/AL Exam
OKALA is offering an "online" NAB Review Course - self-paced, about 11 hours in length - to help RC/AL Administrator applicants prepare for the NAB RC/AL exam. Check with the OKALA website.
However, MUCH of the material on the NHA and RCAL Exams do overlap...somewhere in the area of 90% of the materials overlap, referencing the same Domains of Practice. The review Mr. Townsend conducts COULD be helpful in preparing for the RCAL exam as well (though it's aimed specifically for the NHA exam). It's an option and several RCAL Administrator applicants have found the review very useful to this end.
