I purchased a couple Manhattan Prep books, ETS's Official Guide, different phone apps, etc. yet I ended up using Magoosh's online application almost exclusively. I work full time and was only able to study after work and weekends. I was exhausted most nights after work before I even sat down to study... without the structure that Magoosh provides I would not have been able to be nearly as effective. I did not want to take the test more than once and my target was a 330. I scored a 331; what else can I say? Magoosh was literally a fraction of the price of the other paid resources. It has everything you need, trust me.

Magoosh helped keep me on track, at a much lower price point than other test prep systems. I followed the one-month plan, and was happy to do small pieces of prep each day. While I couldn't keep up the pace with a full-time job (as the guide warned me), I still believe Magoosh helped me a lot. I learned general strategies (number sense, not looking at the verbal answers without my own answer), a sense for timing, and most importantly, I always had a plan to follow so I couldn't second-guess myself.

A question bank of more 1000 question with video lectures is all you need to entrench the concepts.
Especially,Quant medium and Hard questions are quite GRE styled questions.Very Hard Questions of Quant used to have me on the edge but these are the ones which helped me think in most effective way in 35 minutes time .
Regarding Verbal,TC & SE questions were gem and the main highlight is that even though they have their vocabulary app of 1000 words .You will definitely encounter more than 100 words while solving those TC & SE questions .Made a note of it.Took out surprise from the exam since I was aware of all the words

Magoosh has questions that were nearly identical to the actual GRE. The large question bank of Math questions combined with the tips and tricks on how to tackle the questions made Math a breeze!

Magoosh's Quant lessons educated me on a lot of different strategies and 'tricks' that I could use to simplify seemingly tough problems on the GRE. Also loved the fact that the solutions to problems are explained via a video and not just text, unlike many other test prep services.

The variety of question types that Magoosh exposed me to was instrumental in helping me prepare for the exam.

It helped me learn difficult level of math and verbal and how to solve them in the given time frame. It helped me to develop my logical thinking in Verbal and taught me how to eliminate trap answers in both verbal and math.

it really helped me to have a comprehensive plan and something that told me what to do on every single day to prepare. i gave myself six weeks to study (magoosh videos for four weeks and then practice problems for two weeks after that) and my score went from a baseline of 314 to 329 on the actual exam!

Magoosh helped me identify areas for growth and offered videos focused around those specific topics. I liked the feature of giving quizzes after math sections so I could decide whether I felt ready to move on or if I wanted to keep reviewing that topic. The practice GRE test I took also predicted my scores pretty well: I received the same Quant score on the real GRE, and I was able to bring my Verbal score up a few points because I went through all the words on the Magoosh Vocabulary Builder app.

Used it to cover the fundamentals of math and can’t say enough about how helpful magoosh was. I think there was some gaps in my foundational math skills and these videos were incredibly helpful.

Would be happy to recommend this to anyone, and I’m positive if I had another month to study my score would’ve been even higher.

On my first practice test with Magoosh I got 312. Slowly but surely I worked my way up to higher and higher scores using their 3 month beginner plan. Their lessons were amazing, the ability to watch at double speed made it easy and convenient to review concepts. Their video explanations of every single question, accompanied by their written explanations were interminably helpful (notice the use of the GRE word they taught me). They also provided links to the lessons that could help you when you got questions wrong, so you didn't have to go search through all the lessons trying to find the right one. Their blog was also incredible, and their live courses were so much fun and informative. Their customer service was also AMAZING--they would respond to a question I had about a problem in minutes. Their study buddy feature is also a fantastic resource to take advantage of. I did a couple of gre prep books/programs before Magoosh, but I continued to struggle with concepts that were immediately elucidated with a Magoosh explantation. I do not doubt that it was really Magoosh that enabled me to get such a fantastic score. Truly, can't say enough good things about Magoosh (not sponsored, I swear!!)

Magoosh adapted to my learning needs and gave me a realistic interface to work with to prepare for the GRE. It was also good for someone like me who only had three weeks to prepare for the exam!

I was looking for a test prep provider for my GRE exam that could prepare me for a high score, especially in the quants section. I came to know about the great resources and tests provided my magoosh and enrolled for the 1 Month Premium plan. The level of the material provided was perfect for my need and with the always-available chat facility, I could clear my doubt on the spot and without a hitch. Also, a big thank you to Mike McGarry and Chris Lele for the awesome content and engaging videos.

Quant: I benefitted most from the mental math tips and tricks. I work with numbers all day in Private Equity and had never heard of these helpful hacks. Super.

Verbal: Working through nearly all of the Magoosh verbal question pool helped me immensely. I included a running list of all unfamiliar vocab words I encountered, and drilled them daily. I also liked the strategy videos for sentence completion.

General: Having your team available to chat, responding instantly during business hours, was incredible. Great for when I got tripped up in wrong answers to think through the correct answers in real time with a real person.

Magoosh structured my studying and I felt accountable to the schedule. Magoosh provided the actual content and concepts for the Quantitative section that I did not see in other prep materials. Even though I didn't do that well on the actual test, I did better in the ETS practice tests I did and would have probably gotten virtually every Quant question wrong if I hadn't used Magoosh. I wish I had done better in Quant, but wasn't expecting above 156 or 157 at best, and was thrilled with my Verbal Score.

Magoosh was the only resource I used to study, aside from a few other vocabulary resources. I felt extremely prepared to take the GRE after using Magoosh to study. I especially found the math tricks and tips very useful. I was able to make signifcant improvements to my verbal score from when I first started to test day. I even scored 11 points above my goal score of 320!

Magoosh accurately mimicked the questions and digital format of the actual GRE, which made me feel more at ease on test day. The lessons were a succinct way to weed through the fluff and determine what info I actually needed to know. While I spent most of my time on practice problems, the user interface across all Magoosh GRE prep materials was consistently straightforward and *dare I say* friendly.
