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 questions were very similar to the real thing--far more than anything I've seen put out by other test prep companies. Combine that with the huge volume of questions available, and you have an invaluable source of test prep material.

When I get my score report back I will want a shirt!

As you can see from my previous score, as a non-native speaker of English, I needed help especially for the verbal section. I think I watched all lessons in the Verbal part, solved most of the questions (and as I solved them, made sure to learn the unknown words.) I also watched all Vocabulary Wednesday's of Chris on YouTube. The day before the test, I could not recall all words I attempted to learn, but most of them (70-80 %). Plus, I improved a lot in terms of the method of solving the questions by listening to lessons and question explanations, when not to look at answer choices, avoiding traps, and many else. I am especially thankful to Chris, his voice is still echoing in my head :)

Ok, it's a bit weird that I did not use Magoosh for the part I was most successful at. But honestly, because of the Turkish Math. education system, I could already confidently solve the majority of the questions. In the previous test, I didn't prepare at all and scored 166. This time, I occasionally took some practice questions from Magoosh to get a bit quicker and to get used to the math. terminology in English, because I know them better in Turkish. Then it was easy for me.

Thanks Magoosh team for everything! I am really content with my score, and now I have to focus on other parts of my grad application.

Magoosh helped me reach my goal of improving my math score by 5 points. Unlike other GRE prep approaches that I've used, Magoosh used a teaching style that helps you learn actual math skills and understand the math behind the questions. Other prep courses just teach you little "tricks" that don't really allow you to master the material fully, which of course is what the GRE actually tests. So not only do I feel good about my GRE score, I feel like I'm actually better at math!

Magoosh has really responsive consumer support, the tutorial and especially the video analysis of questions are, without doubt, the best on the market.

Magoosh provided me with a wide range of practice problems to get me ready for test day. The videos for each question were particularly helpful in breaking down the problems and making them manageable. I was never strong in Math testing, but Magoosh put a little voice in my head that made me stop and say, "Now, let's think about this" for each problem. I think that this helped me immensely to stay calm during the test.

Magoosh gave me an entirely new way of approaching the questions. Chris' video lessons were fantastic and gave me some great strategies to use on the Verbal Reasoning section. The flash card app was also very convenient and helped me improve my vocab immensely. The score increase I saw was beyond my expectations. Thanks!

The videos were incredibly helpful catching me up on all the math I forgot in the past ten years! They also gave me amazing time saving tips and tricks for the different sections and question types which helped keep me focused on test day. I felt very prepared, not only with the knowledge I needed to answer the test questions, but also with the test format.

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.
