I did not know any math, and I ended up doing so much better on the math section than I ever could have on my own. I watched all of the videos, took notes, and made sure to do every practice question. The videos were so great and the vocabulary flashcards are amazing.

Magoosh helped me with setting up a comprehensive schedule for the limited time I had. I was able to cover all topics within the 1 month period. The video explanations are the biggest plus with Magoosh. My practice score at the beginning of the month was 315 and it improved to 324 towards the end of the month. My actual GRE score of 329 was possible because of the unique teaching methods of Magoosh.

Magoosh helped me improve my math score by +10 points, from 156 on my first practice test to 166! It gave me the confidence that I had done the prep work needed to succeed and challenged my abilities to help me exceed my target math score! It also helped me maintain my verbal abilities to give me a high overall score.

I was already strong on verbal, having recently majored in English literature, but the practice questions allowed me to develop speed and accuracy within the test format. Contrastingly, I was very nervous about the math section since I hadn’t studied any math in 5 years, but the math videos were extremely useful for relearning topics. I appreciated having the ability to change the speed of the videos so that I could fly through familiar topics, while slowing down to really absorb difficult ones. Overall, my scores on both sections were higher than I anticipated.

All the math videos on Magoosh helped me brush up my quant skills and the verbal videos were equally helpful. The Magoosh Vocabulary Builder app was invaluable in my preparation. Following the Magoosh study plan actually gave me some direction on how I should go about preparing for the test.

Love love loved the 6 month study plan article. It kept me on track! I did not have more than an hour to study most days, so that long term pacing was invaluable. I also really appreciated the vocab words. I saw tons of them on the actual test and know for a fact that I would’ve been stumped on certain questions had I not memorized them.

Magoosh helped me by boosting my confidence and technique in both the verbal and the quantitative section. At the start I was getting about half of the practice verbal questions right, and by the end it was up to 8/10 - 9/10. I also consistently used the flash cards which helped to expand my vocabulary. These new words did appear on the test, and I would not have known them without the practice. I managed to get a 168 on the quantitative section, and a 164 on the verbal section.

Magoosh provided all the strategies, practice problems, and applications I needed to prepare on my own time throughout the summer! I never felt like there wasn’t some place for me to improve, and thanks to Magoosh I was successful on the app.

I LOVE this service, and it was worth every penny.

The math lessons were incredibly helpful. I majored in studio art for my undergrad, so I hadn’t had any exposure to math in years. The video lessons helped me brush up on my rusty quantitative skills. Additionally, the verbal practice questions along with the vocab builder and flash card apps drastically improved my vocabulary.

I first took the GRE a little over a year ago after having taken an in-person course with another test prep company and scored a 158 Quant and 159 Verbal. I wasn't very happy with my score so I planned to take it again. I studied full-time for a month using Magoosh and the one-month study plan and scored a 164 Quant and 167 Verbal! The lesson videos were incredibly helpful, the app made the entire platform highly portable and the explanation videos after each practice problem really made a difference.

The practice problems were incredibly helpful, as was the feature for customizing practice sessions. Repetition, for me, is key in recognizing patterns easily and Magoosh provides such a large pool of practice questions I was able to familiarize myself with common patterns/formulas seen on the quant section.

Magoosh helped me sharpen my math skills for the test and it taught me a tremendous amount of useful information for the verbal section. Without the help I got from Magoosh I would have scored 10-15 points less overall.
