Great Brain Training
- Varied exercises
- Gradual increased difficulty
- Sound and graphics are smooth
- Really great brain challenge game full of so many mini-games.
- The interface to go from Practice to the actual Game Mode is NOT intuitive. Navigating to avoid repeating stuff and getting stuck in the easy levels is a major flaw.
- Some of the shape exercises are non-intuitive.
- If I recall you can't save your progress on the circuits if you have to stop playing.
- The higher levels are real tough and may make you feel dumb.

Very easy at first but it's worth repeated play
The biggest problem I had with this game was figuring out how to increase the difficulty. If you play the different games in "practice" mode, they won't contribute to your overall score. Just remember you will need to complete a skill circuit or a full circuit before the difficulty increases.
There are six different skills the game tests you on such as Spatial, Math, Reasoning, etc. In each of the six skills there are five different challenges for a total of 30 games. A few of the games aren't explained very clearly so you may fail the first couple of times until you figure out what they expect out of you. Most are easy to figure out after a couple practice tests.
You will start with some grade school level questions to start (i.e. 3 + 1 = ?) but the challenge will ramp up as you complete circuits. Many of the games test not only your knowledge but the speed at which you can get the correct answer.
Brain Training for Dummies isn't really a game like the popular hidden-object or time-management games on this site. It is, however, a new and different way to exercise your mind and massage the brain cells a little bit. You'll actually feel it once the questions get challenging. Brain Training for Dummies will also point out the skill sets you tend to do well in and the areas that need improvement. If you like puzzle games or brain teasers, try this one out.

Get Brain Challenge Instead
Maybe if I'd played this game first, I'd think it was fine. But I played Brain Challenge and Brainiversity first and those games reduce this one to something clunky and boring. If you want something to train your brain, don't bother with this one.
