CogMed Effectiveness

Has anyone here used the CogMed program? If so, did you find it effective?

For those who don't know, CogMed is a computer based program that is supposed to improve working memory. However, in order to use the program you have to go through an approved practitioner. I'm not sure about the cost.

I checked out the website and viewed the CogMed Demonstration video. Frankly, the activities are very similar to those we have on a couple games for our Nintendo DS (Big Brain Academy, Brain Age).

Also, what are your thoughts on the long term benefits of this type of memory training?
