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's practice problems and explanation videos were immensely helpful in my preparation. The ability to create custom practice sessions allowed me to pinpoint particular topics until I felt comfortable with them. The ability to flag problems provided me with the option to repeat questions until I understood the concepts behind them.

Magoosh has very similar questions as compared to GRE. While giving GRE, it was like i am solving Magoosh Practice test, since the questions were very similar.

I have improved my Quant score by 7 marks and its now 168.
Thanks Magoosh

Magoosh offers a plentiful question bank with nice features to keep track of my progress. I find the filter function to filter out answered questions very helpful. I usually use this function to come back to answer questions that I answered incorrectly and find this method helpful.

Magoosh email support is amazing. Anytime I have a question about service or a difficult questions, Magoosh support team gives extremely detailed answer. I can imagine the time and effort the team invested to help students understand the questions at the best possible level.

If you aim for near perfect score in Quant section, I highly recommend to finish all the Hard and Very Hard questions in the Quant section. They will help you to be familiar with the common mistakes you may make under the intensity of test day.

Magoosh's practice questions were very good. The best thing was that we were able to choose the difficulty level. All topics were covered in depth. Maths was very well covered. Both the instructors were very good and the material reflected the fact that how passionately were they teaching. Their hard work showed in the ultimate delivery of the material to me. I took a Princeton review's practice test before preparing and I got 306 , 145 and 161 respectively. Magoosh's material helped me go to 153 and 167 . Plus, the guys were extremely polite, helpful and considerate over the Email. I think they are not just 'selling' their product. They are ready to hold your hand and take you through the end, provided you offer it :). Thanks a lot.

The practice problems and explanations were fantastic in their range of difficulty and setup - they allowed for practice similar to a test taking scenario. It's oftentimes difficult to read and understand solutions to problems, but Magoosh circumvents this issue with video solutions

I discovered that I had to get above the 80th percentile in at least two of the thee sections of the GRE to be eligible for a scholarship from my top university. I needed help mostly in math and writing and only had about one month to prepare. I chose Magoosh and found them super relevant, professional, and helpful. It was exactly what I needed! With help from them I created a game plan for the writing section, when before I felt lost. All the math lessons and practice problems were on point, exactly what you will find on the actual exam. Come exam day, I felt extremely well prepared and reached my goal! I am still waiting for the AWA score, but I feel very optimistic about it.

When I took the official GRE practice test, I recognized two weaknesses: my limited vocabulary and my lack of speed in answering math questions. Thankfully, Magoosh GRE was able to help me improve both of these. The flashcards let me study anytime and I expanded my vocabulary by over 300 words. The math practice questions and the explanation videos helped me develop strategies to answer questions more quickly and I was able to answer every question on the GRE to the best of my ability. I also really appreciated the Magoosh customer service team who quickly responded to my questions and sent friendly reminder and good luck emails. Magoosh gave me the confidence to walk in to my GRE knowing I was prepared to meet my full potential!

Well, you guys have really tons of tasks, which is really helpful during intensive study. Actually I started to prepare for GRE only within 1 month though I bought subscription in JUNE, but this is just because of my work and study, I had no time earlier. Videos were also helpful with some tricky formulas but I think I knew math quite well before.

I found the vocab flashcards super helpful to learn new words in spare time. Love, love, love the math guy in the quant lesson modules. He is awesome at breaking things down, and clearly loves the subject. I only had about 10 days to study for the quant, but these videos were clutch.

To me, best thing about Magoosh is that you can solve all the problems, then again solve those which were incorrect before, then again solve those which were incorrect twice previously and so on unless you get all the questions correct. This type of filtering helped me to identify where my weakness is and focus accordingly. Moreover, unlimited number of practice tests helped me a lot to improve test taking stamina.

Another thing for which I am utterly grateful to Magoosh is their helpfulness. I purchased a premium subscription of Magoosh in October 2014 which was supposed to end in March 2015. But for some personal problems I couldn't take preparation for GRE in this time. At last I could manage to sit for GRE in October 2016. Within this time they I requested them for extension four times. They saw that I couldn't use their content so they offered me extension every time. Thank you Magoosh for this helpfulness.

The lessons were extremely helpful, especially the verbal and AW lessons. I like it that Magoosh has its own philosophy of tackling verbal questions which totally works, for example, "don't let the choices do the thinking for you".
Also, help was always available whenever I asked, no matter it was account-related or problem-related questions. I even got some warm and reassuring replies when I emailed after taking my exam because I was just worried that I made some silly mistakes.

Magoosh provided a well structured approach to fully comprehend the material. I felt confident that if I fully understood the content of Magoosh I would be well prepared for the test and that was true. The instructors made the whole experience a little more enjoyable for me.

When I began studying for the GRE, I had great difficulty with generating a study plan that would help to target the areas in which I needed the most help (verbal reasoning). I was so pleased to learn about Magoosh's specialized study plans for those who desire to place emphasis on one component of the exam yet still want to maintain the strength they have in other parts of the exam . Their resource recommendations could not have better prepared me for what to expect on the actual exam. This program saved me the overwhelming amount of money that I would have to spend on tutoring. I am eternally grateful for Magoosh's existence!

Magoosh helped me in streamlining my preparation. Earlier I relied on official as well as free materials available online but that does not teach you how to tackle GRE-specific problems. Magoosh videos helped me understand each type of question GRE asks and how to approach them effectively. I couldn't have improved my score by 18 points in just a month of preparation if there was no magoosh!
