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.

It greatly helped me in understanding the complexities of GRE tests and practicing in a way which directly replicates the way GRE test is organized.

I credit Magoosh for my significant improvement from practice to actual test. I thought that the Manhattan tests were a great compliment, as the material was typically pretty hard (harder than on the actual GRE in my experience).

The video responses were key for me on the math section!

I really focused on the Math lessons and completed several problems. They made a difference for me on the actual test, helping me raise my Math score significantly and maintain a good verbal score. I am very likely to recommend Magoosh to my friends.

Magoosh helped me create a manageable one month plan to prepare for the GRE. I needed to brush up on some quantitative concepts I hadn't studied in years. Luckily the video lessons were the perfect match for my learning style.

I was able to go through problems and learn the question types. It was great to see estimated scores to keep track of my improvement. I also reviewed vocabulary that came up in the problems. I really improved a lot by going through the practice questions and got better results than expected on the real exam.

Actually, I had some English issues thus even if I had a strong mathematical basis sometimes I did not always understand what the question required. Magoosh helped me to understand the spirit of the GRE

The large bank of practice problems was invaluable. I already knew many of the math concepts tested, but what I needed was consistent practice in the sort of creative problem-solving tested on the GRE, and Magoosh's problems bank provided just that. The instructional videos I watched were excellent as well.

In every way literally. Without Magoosh I could never have obtained a 170. I wasn't even really aiming for a perfect score but Magoosh was that great that I got it. I think Magoosh is absolutely essential for anyone planning on taking the GRE.

The vast question database with individual explanation videos and prompts to the relevant lessons is as good as a prep program can get.

Magoosh helped me specially in mastering the question format while identifying my main gaps. I had already used magoosh to prepare for GMAT and I can say the methodology of lessons and exercises are wonderful.

Good general strategies for each multiple choice problem type as well as the writing section. Flashcards were good for vocab. Also some very good specific problem type strategies in the math section

It gave me a great structure to get myself back into studying things I hadn't studied in years (I've been out of college for four years so there was a little bit of rust to kick off the old mental computer). The vocabulary flashcards were a lifesaver, as were all the math videos (because lets be honest, you don't really use most of that math in a non-academic environment so it leaves your brain).

The practice questions and practice tests also helped me reorient myself and learn how to answer the questions on the GRE (it is definitely something that once you figure out what it's looking for - and this was particularly true on the verbal section for me - then it becomes much easier to solve).

Magoosh provided the structure, feedback, and motivation to be persistent studying and ultimately be successful on the GRE. It was easy to learn from my mistakes because the videos clearly explained the problem solving strategies. Without a doubt Magoosh in an excellent learning experience no matter what kind of learner you are!

It helped me especially with the verbal section, great strategies to answer reading comprehension questions. I am not a native-speaker and learning vocabulary with the mobile apps was fundamental.

Magoosh is an amazing resource for international students, probably the best out there in terms both of shape and content. The math questions are tricky but not lengthy to calculate, in a very GRE-like fashion. The flashcards selection is also very accurate.
