Let see if I can explain this right, still learning myself. It depends on the program your using so some of the terms I use below may not be the same for you.

Exposure is for the over-all picture. You adjust your exposure first to set your highlights. If you over shoot your exposure you can introduce noise into the shadows. Next your Brightness affects the mid-tones more, so if you get the highlights right with Exposure but the picture itself is still a little dark you go to your Brightness. Then you adjust your shadows or fill light in the really dark areas.

Hope that helps
