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 helped keep me on track, at a much lower price point than other test prep systems. I followed the one-month plan, and was happy to do small pieces of prep each day. While I couldn't keep up the pace with a full-time job (as the guide warned me), I still believe Magoosh helped me a lot. I learned general strategies (number sense, not looking at the verbal answers without my own answer), a sense for timing, and most importantly, I always had a plan to follow so I couldn't second-guess myself.

I am looking to earn my Master's in Mechanical Engineering, so I spent the bulk of my time studying for the math portion. I studied for a month and a half while working full time. Magoosh was very convenient for someone like myself. I was able to concentrate on the quant subjects that I was deficient in by watching the pertinent videos and practicing questions over those topics. If I had given myself more time to practice, I think I could have earned a perfect score in the quant section and increased my verbal score by at least a couple of points. Even with the limited time I spent studying, I should have no problem being admitted to the graduate school I have chosen.

I was strong at Math and I signed up for Magoosh mainly to improve my English. The Vocabulary app as well as the portal helped me to develop my vocabulary and improve my performance in English. I was working full time and had only evenings to prepare - the practice material was perfect for me and help to improve my performance in a short time. I actually didn't do well in my actual GRE as compared to my preparation earlier, but despite got 153. The Math practice questions also helped me to refresh my memory and pick up speed. Further, my account was expiring 1 month before my exam and I should also thank Magoosh Team for extending my account till my exam.

Magoosh provided excellent study materials to help me prepare. The videos and practice questions were particularly useful, and the Dashboard was a great way to keep track of my progress and find areas where I could improve as I made my way through the questions. The study guide set a schedule and stick to it!

329 or 334--I can't quite read my sticky note they gave me, and I don't remember what the computer said

Before I received the email referring me to this survey, I sent a longish email through your contact feature on the main page regarding this. As a note, you may use any part of that email for a testimonial. However, I'd originally intended it as a personal letter, so I would appreciate some discretion on what you publish, if you do so. For instance, there are currently exactly two students at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities who are chemistry/computer science double majors...

I only wanted to increase my math score, so I did not study the verbal sections at all. I went through most of the lessons and all of the practice problems over several months. I found both of them to be extremely helpful. I would recommend Magoosh to anyone.

Magoosh helped me improve my performance on the Math Section of the GRE. I thought the practice method was great, since I could use it on my laptop, phone, or tablet. I could take it on the go and solve the problems as time allowed.

magoosh was amazing. I was able to focus on areas where I knew I needed to work, and the practice problems provided unparalleled help. The self paced tutorials are great for someone like me, a working professional who doesn't have time for a full time or evening class.

The portable nature of the Magoosh program was a perfect fit for my busy schedule. I was able to listen to videos or practice questions at any moment I chose simply by opening the app. My predicted scores were right in line with my actual scores. Thanks!

It helps a ton. After taking the Math Practice, I knew what the questions would be in the actual exam, so I was quite at ease when I met a hard one. The Verbal Practice also helped me a lot -- the very hard questions were indeed very very hard! Practicing them made me not nervous anymore and finally I got my dream score. I'm so happy with it!

Magoosh makes me accustomed to the feeling of psychological breakdown facing with hard words, which, I think, is the most helpful emotional strength in a GRE test.

Loved the videos and the vocabulary flash cards. The study plan helped me prepare effectively. The plethora of practice questions was extremely helpful, especially since every single one has both a video and written explanation.

It was a great umbrella program. It really helped me understand all of the different components of the test to study and paced me very well. I wished I had had 2 weeks to study after finishing the 90 day advance program, but didn't have the time due to personal commitments. Altogether, it was a great course and well worth the money.

Magoosh was extremely helpful to me in two aspects. Firstly, the verbal practices and the explanations that come along are amazing in helping me dissecting the complex syntax and logic of the real GRE verbal questions. Magoosh staff are very fast to respond my email inquries as well. Secondly, the math questions in Magoosh are a lot harder than the actual GRE questions. So I was very well prepared for the actual test.
