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.

Magoosh was instrumental in teaching me new concepts for the GRE that I hadn’t learned from previous prep materials. The study plans had a great focus on both verbal AND quant, allowing for better development of each skill. The practice questions were phenomenal. Especially the way they could be sorted by topic, correct or incorrect, flagged, and more. I went through all of the videos once, and all of the practice questions, twice! I also utilized the Magoosh GRE vocabulary Flashcards app and the Magoosh gmat math Flashcards app, which solidified my readiness even further. I improved my score 6 points in verbal and 5 points in quant, and I solely attribute this to Magoosh.

Magoosh is an exceptional service for GRE preparation. I was on a “crash course” (2 months to take the GRE for my first time – while continuing my full-time job, studying on evenings and weekends only). I signed up for Magoosh and dove into my studies. After 2 months, and after my GRE, I can declare the following: Magoosh is a fantastic GRE prep service, delivering everything they promise, and more! They guarantee a +5 point score each on Quant & Verbal – I attest I achieved at least +10/+10 based on my scores from early practice sessions.

The Magoosh training methodology is exceptional. The videos lessons are complimented with on-screen pen work following along the script, reinforcing learning with both visual and audible stimulation – a proven method used for decades, and mastered by Magoosh. The lessons are only a few minutes long each allowing for short study sessions (say between arriving home and dinner) and have options for up to 2x speed dubbing to allow quick review of topics you’re familiar with.

The Magoosh practice questions have very thorough explanations for how they got to the right answer, and they also directly link to an appropriate lesson for review if you need more help. The Magoosh website also allows personal notes for each question (and lesson) so you can guide your own memory through your own personal challenges.

In closing, the Magoosh GRE preparation service has my highest recommendation. Their service far exceeded their promise, on a budget and on schedule; their service directly maximizes the chance each of their students will get accepted to the program they desire!

The videos explained every concept I needed to know perfectly. There were plenty of practice problems to help me prepare. The videos explaining the answers to those practice problems were extremely helpful as well. I did the three-month plan, then the one-month advanced plan since I had 4 months to study.

Magoosh provided me with not just the content I needed but also important strategies and practice questions for answering and understanding the GRE in an easy to follow schedule. I didn’t need to get multiple texts and sources, it was literally all I needed to focus on to get good scores.

Magoosh is amazing. I went from not even knowing what the GRE was to getting a great score in two months. I followed the 3 month study plan and felt that magoosh prepared me so well that I took my GRE a month early and only completed 2 of the study plan months. I got a 323 total, and was so happy with my score I cried. Magoosh prepared me so well, especially for the quant section which I really struggled with in the beginning. They teach you so many handy tricks and teach you to really learn things and work through things, instead of giving you a superficial understanding of the material. I really can't thank Magoosh enough. I came into GRE studying so nervous, clueless and unprepared and came out with an amazing score I couldn't be happier with. Thank you Magoosh!!!

Thank you so much Magoosh!! With the help of your unparalleled services, I was able to boost my overall score by 14 points. Your insightful commentary and unique perspective into the nuances of the exam were crucial to my improvement. From the many study sources I've used, nothing compares to the thoroughness that Magoosh provides for both the Quantitative and Verbal sections.

The question bank reveals nearly anything one could encounter on the quantitative reasoning sections. Additionally, the questions are more difficult, making test day feel much easier. If you want to master quant, Magoosh is the right answer.

It provided a structured platform that helped me study and form a study plan. Shout out to the math videos for really helping me understand some concepts I have struggled with for years. Would highly recommend to others.

It helped me broaden my vocabulary but also focus in on words that were relevant to the test. The GRE likes to use common words with secondary meanings. Many of the flash cards included such words.

The entire package is clear, crisp and concise, which is what a busy undergrad student needs. The course curriculum is no-nonsense, straight to the point. The exercises do not beat around the bush and are all specifically designed to prepare you for the actual test day.

Magoosh structured my days, gave me a good idea of what was on the test, and made the process of learning the test feel incremental and rewarding instead of overwhelming and undoable. I honestly couldn’t have done this without Magoosh.

Greetings everyone,
If I say Magoosh is THE BEST prep for GRE, you probably would be thinking I am being boastful or perhaps trying to market MAGOOSH :p. But one just cannot be modest while talking about it. If you are preparing to take a GRE, Magoosh has to be the way. It is like a one-stop-shop, which has all the materials one might need to ace in GRE. The QUALITY of questions included in the study material are unparalleled and are closest to the type and quality of questions one sees in GRE. And if you are scared of the Verbal section, then let me assure you, Chris ( from Magoosh :p ) got it covered for you.

Best wishes!

I really only used magoosh for verbal because that’s the score that was most important for me. I loved the bite-size modules, practice problems, and the ability to move at a fairly rapid pace. I went from a 152 to a 164 verbal score in just under a month!

Magoosh helped me learn new strategies to taking the GRE that I wouldn’t have had without the program. It also gave me confidence going into the test, because instead of being worried about the time or questions I was unsure of, I put the strategies I had learned to use and got a higher score than I had even hoped for!

Magoosh was immensely helpful for studying for the GRE. This was the first and only time I had taken the test so I wasn't sure how to prepare. I LOVED the feature that let you map out how to study - whether you were beginner/advanced, and the timeline you wanted to study - 1/3/6 months. I chose the beginner, 3-month course and did it religiously every day. I also used Magoosh's GRE vocab app that has 1000 common GRE words alongside the online program. These two were all I used in my preparation and I felt it was more than enough. Magoosh outlined what to do every day, and I did the practice problems on the videos, practice tests, etc. until I felt I understood the topic. I think Magoosh does have a lot of really challenging problems that prepare you for the hardest on the test, but it is good to remember that the entire GRE is not composed of those advanced problems. I also thought the explanation of why the answers were what they were was completely necessary for my understanding of each problem.

Magoosh GRE offers a comprehensive package for your test prep. I was worried about a low score in Quant but I ended up practicing most of the questions on Magoosh twice; it helped me stay calm and confident on the actual test day. The small tips that Magoosh experts sent for test day were as important as the detailed video lessons. I practiced the Verbal section a lot- I could have done better as I used to score around 163+ in mock tests. The Magoosh GRE Flashcards are a life-saver, I used to go through them while sitting in a bus or a train or even in a boring class in college. I have a much better vocabulary now.

Magoosh helped a ton with vocab. Studying the 300 most common words enabled me to increase my accuracy on sentence completion questions.

Magoosh was also helpful for the Quantitative section. The lesson videos were a great refresher on material I hadn't reviewed since high school.
