331

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.

Thorough Math review and lessons provided good strategies for the verbal. The practice tests were good- I used mostly the custom ones. The vocab and math flashcards were also helpful. Actual test was much easier than Magoosh practice problems in Math.

It was absolutely critical in re-teaching me the math strategies and fundamental principles that I haven't used in years. The verbal lessons provided some great approaches to the reading comprehension and text completion questions. Overall, this study program was extremely valuable, and I'm very glad I went with this choice.

My score improved by the equivalent of 20 points on both the quantitative and the verbal. More importantly, I was able to relearn much of the math, which I had not seen since I last took my GREs in 2006.

Magoosh really helped me. Although I was expecting a better verbal score but I guess I didn't practice enough. I love the explanation videos and email help to be specific.

The reason I signed up for magoosh was that I needed more practice problems. Problems were very good but I also enjoyed the lectures. I wish I had signed up for magoosh during my first attempt.

The math lessons were way more comprehensive than the Manhattan books in terms of covering the topics. I wish I had realized the 1.5x feature early because Mike McGarry talks kind of slow, and I fell off the lectures early. Overall, I had fun.

Helped me revise math and get better at reading comprehension. I was primarily using it for math and am pretty happy with my math score. I want to make a special shoutout to Mike mcgarry, whose measured tones and intelligent breakdown of the math topics was very reassuring and helpful for my revision of math I hadn't done in 12 years. Thanks lots.
