There are many useful tutorials on PB but it can be a chore to search for them, so here is my current collection. Please add to this thread if you discover other useful ones, particularly those not originating from TheBrainTechnologies.

Official tutorials
Althought these are in .MP4 format, not YouTube's well known .FLV format, I include them for the sake of completeness as they are polished and comprehensive. You may not need to venture further than the above link. This thought, Tutorials, is a child thought of Support and also Learning Zone. The tutorials can be downloaded using well known browser plugins.

TheBrainTechnologies YouTube Channel
Searching TheBrain's own WebBrain for "YouTube" produced no results, which is the main reason for this post. However, their YouTube channel is alive and well, and contains several recent additions. Although this is the obvious URL to use:

Matt Caton's YouTube Channel
Matt is well known to us as a presentor of many fine tutorials, although in the list below, Shelley Hayduk is often the presentor instead. These videos are less formal than those in the first two categories and often relate to earlier versions of PB. In many cases the version used is unstated but is probably 4, 4.5 or 5. The last video was added one year ago. However, these videos contain plenty of useful ideas and tips supplementing those of  the two previous groups, so are worth watching.

Personalbrain cyber style (dcannell Jan 2009)
