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.

Follow the study plan and with helpful tips to both quant and verbal question. I didn't have any friend that have done the test before, so it was really useful to get acquantice with the question format, and be able to do small batches of question everyday (after a full-time job and extra activities) was the right choice. The flashcards app is another great addition, as it allowed me to use my commute times to study vocab.

First time: I skimmed all of the videos once trying to watch all of them. I also took multiple practice tests and practice questions. I went through all 1000 flashcards and felt comfortable with them.

Second time: Watching the videos again for the math section really helped me the second time around. I did not use any of the verbal section videos to study. I did not use Magoosh flashcards, I used another app that had 5000 words.

Magoosh is extremely helpful. I'm not the person who would like to 'waste time' completing a survey. However, I only spend half a month to get such satisfactory score. During the preparation, I even didn't read the Official Guide(I know it's not recommended :p). I only watched the lessons and practiced the questions and Magoosh helped me free form the pain the take the GRE again!

Magoosh was an excellent platform which allowed me to practice specific sets of question types that I needed help with. The video instructions are clear, but brief, allowing you to cover a lot of material in a single session. I used Magoosh in conjunction with other GRE prep books and found the online platform far more realistic to the testing conditions. I'm a firm believer in the practice-like-you'll-perform method and being able to acclimate myself to practice tests using a computer rather than a traditional book was extremely helpful in my preparation.

Magoosh not only provided a great platform for me to learn but also pointed me in the right direction for additional resources and learning. This methodology really shows how much Magoosh wants the test taker to succeed. I increased my score by 12 points in 3 weeks by studying the Magoosh vocab and actively seeking Magoosh recommended resources for learning.

A friend recommended me to use Magoosh after he scored a 309 with 2 months practice. When I took the premium I was not certain if it would help me in such a small time period of less than 1 month. But after practicing over 2 times and thanks to Chris Lele for his wonderful video explanations, I reached my dream score.

Thanks Magoosh ????

The mathematics videos were awesome. They covered everything and more in a clear and concise manner. It was incredibly beneficial to have practice problems in the videos as well.


The study plan I subscribed to was key, as I had a strict schedule to follow, but in the end it helped take the stress off of assigning myself work. It helped my study pace and gave me ample amount of time to watch all the mathematics videos at least once, but also a great amount of time practicing.

Besides the practice questions for the verbal section, the Magoosh GRE Vocabulary Flashcards app was the best resource for sharpening my vocabulary, and was also very convenient.

It's hard to put my finger on what was the most helpful/important part of studying with Magoosh, since I strongly believe the combination of instructional videos, practice problems (and videos to explain solutions), practice tests, study plans, preparation information, and on-the-go apps were crucial to my success. If I was forced to pick one, however, I'd say the lesson videos for mathematics.

I definitely needed the most help in math. The practice problems were very close to the actual exam. The techniques provided by the Magoosh teachers showed me how to quickly answer the problems. With similar study questions, I was able to save minutes of work on test day!

Also, the writing component suggestions were quite helpful. Beginning with the hypothesis and writing the entire paper before the introductory paragraph allowed me to synthesis my thoughts and organize a well-devised intro.

Highly recommend Magoosh!!

I was able to approach the passages such that I could complete the verbal sections with much better accuracy. The word lists were incredibly helpful and text completion strategies made the verbal section so much easier; there didn't seem to be a sentence equivalence or text completion that I couldn't complete on the actual test. The Magoosh verbal questions were great in that they were challenging and accurate; I was more accustomed to the format on the actual GRE thanks to the questions.

The math questions were much tougher on the actual test and covered all the pitfalls that I would face on the actual test.

Thanks Magoosh!

First time: did lots of problems, familiarized myself with the topics covered. Thought that would be enough.

Second time: Watched most of the videos, learned about the common patterns and tricks used on the GRE. Supremely helpful.

The best part about Magoosh was the study plan-- having someone else take care of thinking about how much I would need to cover and how fast made it much easier for me to dive into the actual studying. Pairing that with the videos and the practice materials was a HUGE help.

*The "previous GRE scores were from a practice exam.
