What exactly is a reverse help mate? Or a help mate in general for that matter?

As for #330 I just don't what black would do after b7

I am not sure if this is exact but i mean help mate is when black pieces help white and reverse - white king must be mated instead of black.

And i must say this puzzle is a joke .

As for the puzzle is this right?
Edit: this loses for white I'm not sure what I was thinking

I don't have the solution for 327,so we can discuss it .

@ element18 Although I can't say I'm certain I'm right (I realized my solution for 339 is quite wrong) in 327 I responded to a4 with Nb6+ followed by Nxa4

I am sorry, but in #339 i posted a wrong position  - the 3 white pawns on the left must be a row up :
