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.

Magoosh made studying extremely efficient. The exercise quality was high, the video explanations were clear yet concise and the question review tools were excellent.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to dedicate enough time to GRE prep. Two weeks of evenings while on the road plus four full days aren't enough to reach a score that is competitive for admission at top 5 US schools. The rest of my application is very strong, so I will still apply and see where it goes. But my hopes are now low.
I would still like to thank Magoosh. If I were to retake the test in the future, I would choose Magoosh Premium again without hesitation.

I thought Magoosh had great practice questions - especially in the verbal section. I also used the mobile app to study vocabulary words and found it an excellent way to memorize new words. It was especially helpful because I could study in small chunks when I found myself with some spare time but no access to a computer.

Magoosh was my major source of Gre preparation. I took advantage of verbal flash cards , videos and practice questions. The practice questions were hard enough to enable me solve the real Gre problems with ease. I interspersed watching videos and solving corresponding practice questions. I felt very confident about attempting verbal after going through magoosh flash cards. Of course, I practiced to conceptually understand how the words related in a sentence. Above all, I loved the learning interface that Magoosh offers. So, thank you Magoosh team for helping me with Gre preparation.

Magoosh gave many strategies/tips on verbal and AWA that I managed to learn in a two-day prep. Thanks to that I improved 5 points on verbal, which surprised me because I had significantly less time than expected to prepare(as mentioned above, I did a two-day prep). My new AWA score is not yet available.
I did not need to go through quantitative practice though, so I cannot say much besides keeping myself at 170.

The lessons related to Issue and argument task were splendid. The English lessons were very helpful.It helped in fine tuning my strategy for final exam. The variations in mock exams and the difficulty level of questions were on par with the original.

I didn't use Magoosh as much as I should have, but I wouldn't have gotten this score if it wasn't for the verbal practice questions, the math video lessons, and the lessons that dealt with the test in general. I never thought I would improve my score so much and Magoosh was certainly an important part of that improvement.

Magoosh's dashboard was the best learning platform that I came across during GRE studies (used multiple different free and charged services). It was easy to focus only on what I needed to improve the most.

Testing-driven learning is the most effective way for me to quickly internalize concepts and methodologies. Magoosh really tightens up the test-assess-learn cycle with the nice integration of explanation videos and questions.

The videos were invaluable for allowing me to review and learn new quant skills. The number and variety of questions for both sections helped me create and stick to a solid schedule. I'll be using the same practice techniques next semester when I rewrite it (to get closer to perfect!).
