BrainMatriX and PLI Debut Mobile Bar Exam Preparation Guide; BrainMatriX and Nation's Largest Nonprofit Legal Educator Create PDA Version of Leading Bar Exam Review Program

NEW YORK--()--July 14, 2005--BrainMatriX, a leading developer of technology to speed and improve the way people learn, today announced that the Practising Law Institute (PLI) will use the BrainMatriX eReviewBook to deliver its market-leading bar exam review program to handheld devices for the first time. The new PLI Multistate Bar Exam eReviewBook enables busy law school graduates to combine PLI's market-leading content with the unique capabilities of BrainMatriX's mobile, accelerated learning technology.

"What better way to prepare for the bar than to give busy professionals the chance to study whenever and wherever they want?" said Jacques Jospitre, the creator of BrainMatriX's revolutionary learning-acceleration solutions. "The PLI Multistate Bar Exam eReviewBook combines BrainMatriX's research-based approach to test preparation with PLI's respected educational program. For recent law school grads who have to study on the go, it's a no-brainer."

Nearly 40 percent of law school graduates fail the bar exam on their first try, according to the American Bar Association. Most blame their failure on too little time spent preparing for the exam, in particular the critical multistate portion that figures heavily in scoring. The PLI Multistate Bar Exam eReviewBook is designed to make it easier to study for the bar by combining handheld technology with the latest breakthroughs in learning theory. Written exclusively for the Palm OS platform, BrainMatriX's eReviewBook technology exploits the brain's natural memorization cycles to boost information retention and recall (for more on the science behind BrainMatriX, visit www.brainmatrix.com).

"The PLI Multistate Bar Exam eReviewBook is a powerful new tool for law students that will speed their preparation and improve their test performance," said Christopher DeSantis, an attorney who is PLI's director of law-school relations. "PLI has always been on the cutting edge of providing the latest tools to lawyers, whether online or on CD-ROM. Putting our MBE material on handhelds will help us attract the next generation of law school graduates."

The prestigious Practising Law Institute is a non-profit continuing legal education organization chartered by the Regents of the University of the State of New York in 1933. Each year more than 30,000 attorneys and 100-plus law schools use PLI resources in the classroom and beyond. When PLI wanted to extend its best-of-breed review curriculum to mobile computers, it turned to BrainMatriX's eReviewBook platform. While other computerized study aids merely replicate outdated paper processes, BrainMatriX's novel, interactive learning solutions utilize the computer's novel capabilities to transform the learning process and boost retention.

"Being selected by PLI, one of the most prestigious legal institutions in the country, is a strong vote of confidence for BrainMatriX," said Jospitre. "We're proud that PLI chose BrainMatriX's eReviewBook platform to deliver the next generation of bar-exam preparation services."

The PLI Multistate Bar Exam eReviewBook program is available for purchase on the BrainMatriX website (http://www.brainmatrix.com/pli.html).
