This means an A+ in all games at all three difficulties (20 games * 3 difficulties == 60 A+s). An A+ is achieved by getting 1000+ points in that particular game.

I'm not entirely clear on how they all unlock. It seems you can only unlock 2 per day (they unlock after the 'brain test' used to get the '100% brain usage), but they also depend on hitting certain brain usage levels (that is, my last one didn't unlock until I was at 100%).

Some of the games you can 'cheat' by taking a picture (or in the case of some of the math ones, just remembering the problem), and then pausing the game while you solve, and unpausing to put in the answer. Some just require lots of practice and being quick. Try using the D-pad instead of the left stick for the games where you have to enter values. Also, some games (Traveler and Ascending, for example) allow you to use A/B/X/Y instead of a stick, which may help you.

As a general rule, to get A+ you need 100% correct, as you'll need to answer 3-4 'extra' correct to offset an incorrect answer. On 'Easy' you generally need to be getting each answer 'Fast!' which can sometimes mean answering up to 55 correct during the 90 seconds. On hard it's just about getting them right without being 'Slow!' for most games.

I have noticed that sometimes your A+'s won't save correctly. This happens if you open your guide and exit to the dashboard, or turn off your 360 while still in the 'training' menu. I'm not sure how far you actually need to back out, but after losing A+'s once, I always hit 'B' repeatedly to go to the main menu and hit 'Return to Arcade', and I haven't had it happen again.

I'm still a few away at this point but I take a few minutes hacking at one of them every day... All 60 will fall eventually.
