331

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 was fantastic. I will admit, I was a little skeptical- why would this sketchy online GRE course with a heavily self-promoting blog and a weird name be any good. But I heard some good things, and the price was good, so I was willing to give it a shot. I didn't want to pay upwards of $1000 for a Manhattan course, and was willing to take a risk. And I couldn't be happier with how things turned out. The lessons were spot on, and broke out the key components very well. The practice questions and exams were accessible and good. And the explanations for each question helped a lot, since practice is such a big component of a good score. I think that I had the same learning/prep experience, if not better, than all of my friends that paid for Manhattan.

The information was presented very clearly and concisely. I was able to see what information I wasn't fully understanding and was given the resources to learn it in a different way.

I found Magoosh very helpful overall. Specifically, the math content was excellent. My regret on test day was not using mental math enough and using the calculator too often. I was unable to finish the very last math problem on test day due to this. The problem was simple, I just ran out of time. I may have received an extra math point or two (or three) if I had finished that problem.

I actually did take the GRE once before and did fine on it. That was in 1988. I've had plenty of opportunity to forget everything, especially math. Magoosh was a treasure of great information and sympathetic practical advice in a format that was accessible to someone trying to take classes and work full time. The sense that people like me were part of the target audience was also crucial in helping to build confidence for the test. Additionally, I don't know what Chris and Mike are like in person (or if they even really exist ;-) but their videos were both humorous and instructive. Finally, the practice questions were spot on. Thanks!

I had only 10 days to prepare for GRE. And this was my first attempt. If it weren't for Magoosh, preparing in this much time wouldn't have been possible. The lectures are superb. The practice questions are great. Everything was great. In fact i took one magoosh practice test 2 days before my actual GRE and got exactly the same total on the actual GRE.

I was very scared of the verbal section of the GRE, but the magoosh videos helped me learn the teachnique. Also, the magoosh vocabulary app is pretty accurate.I didn't have time to do quant from magoosh but i am sure it would have helped a lot.

I liked the breadth of the subjects covered and the explanations. The splitting into different review sections including the difficulty levels was very helpful. The dashboard is a indeed a thing of marvel. I really liked that I could come home after work everyday and start on timed 20 question sets of Q and V.
