      I forgot to say that those brain training games can also help my brother a lot since he loves to play games, and these educational games can educate him while he is having a good time...He refuses the old fashioned way of studying(from textbooks) so I guess this will help him a lot, and to be honest, I have always wanted a nintendo thank you very much.:)
