Mozart Power: Is it real?

Hello again! Hope you're all having a great weekend! I keep thinking about Mozart and all the hoopla going on this year because of his 250th birthday. Not that he doesn't deserve all of this. He truly was one of the greatest musical geniuses of all times, but is his music given more credit than is due for things like IQ boosting or improving performances on standardized tests?

There's quite a bit of research out there on Mozart and his effect on humans. I'd like to know YOUR experience. Have you personally tried listening to Mozart before a test or while doing a task that requires great concentration such as doing your taxes or balancing your checkbook? Do let me know! Thank you!
