Brain Quest: 5th Grade
by Sally Finley

Presents a very favorable review of Brain Quest: 5th Grade ($20) from IBM Corp. of Redmond, WA (800). Says that the Brain Quest software series brings the popular card deck trivia challenge to the computer screen, with more than 1,000 grade-appropriate, curriculum-based questions in each program. Requires a minimum of System 7.5 for Power Macintosh, or Windows 95/98/NT for an IBM-compatible PC with a Pentium processor; both systems require 16MB RAM, 10MB hard drive space, SVGA monitor, 4X CD ROM drive, an Internet connection (via modem or network) and browser. Relates that the questions are stored in five packs in the subject areas of language arts, mathematics, science, history, and geography, as well as a "grab bag." Says that students love the interactive nature of this program, and rates five on a scale of one to five. Includes one scorecard.
