Doctor’s patented silent alarm test pacing wristwatch helps students improve scores by eliminating test-taking anxiety.

Los Angeles, CA – March 26, 2006 – eXaminator®, the only patented, truly silent, test pacing wristwatch, was created by Dr. Dirk de Brito, a Board Certified Emergency Medicine physician, currently doing a Psychiatry Residency. Dr. de Brito overcame his own test-taking anxiety to graduate from Yale University and the Columbia School of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. He credits his academic success in large part to developing better test pacing skills that helped him stay on track and focused during timed multiple choice and essay exams.

“With more than 25 years of experience taking standardized tests, from the PSAT to specialty medical boards, I understand how debilitating test stress can be,” said de Brito. “We live in a test obsessed society. When students are anxious during an exam, they are less likely to perform up to their academic potential, making mistakes they would not have made had they paced themselves better. I designed eXaminator® to help students of all ages and academic propensity perform to the best of their ability when it matters most. eXaminator keeps them in perfect pace throughout any standardized multiple choice or essay exam.”

Time management tool puts students in control of the clock

Worn as a regular digital wristwatch, eXaminator does more than just attractively tell the time. The built-in silent vibration alarm alerts the wearer at preset intervals to check the watch and adjust his/her pace accordingly. With the single press of a button, students can see how much time remains to complete whatever question is at hand. This is particularly valuable for answering essay questions like those found on the new SAT and LSAT.

Audible alarms are forbidden at most tests

eXaminator’s construction conforms to the rules of essentially all standardized exams, such as the new SAT, ACT, PSAT, LSAT, MCAT, GMAT, GRE, and other state tests. eXaminator silently paces students through their exams with a vibration that alerts only the user and does not disturb others in the room. The user feels the vibration, looks down at eXaminator worn on the wrist, sees what fraction of the exam time remains, and returns to the test feeling confident and assured of finishing on time and with more questions answered.
