No it does not help.

In fact it might be a burden to you. Because when Visa officers know that you have a brother in USA they would suspect that you have a place to stay there and therefore you won't be coming back to your home country.

Try to avoid telling them that you have a brother there. Just focus on the CS exam, that you have to go to US to do the CS exam. That's the best reason to convince them.

Also, show them some ties with your home country, such as being a student or having a job or having money and properties ..etc

In addition to what StepTaker said, careful about lying to immigration. They will ask you where you'll be saying, and if they ask you if you have family there, its better to say yes to that, than no. If they dont ask, you dont have to volunteer the info.
