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.

Study plans and supplementary material list, video lessons and extra questions, and setting up the practice tests with the extra experimental section were all helpful.

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.

It helped me become better prepared for vocal. Provided me with a lot of useful exercises, which are much better than what I may find otherwise. Also, helped me better manage my time.

I am 30 years our of college. I thought the online tutorials were outstandingly well planned and strategically organized - well thought. I found the Math particularly helpful. Unlike verbal skills, it is not something I have been using very day for the last 30 years. The lessons gave great insight into strategy, critical skills and common tricks. My Quantitative Reasoning scores were EXACTLY within the range that MAGOOSH predicted based on my performance on the practice questions. I can just imagine the score I would have received if I had made it more than half way through the lessons!
This is a great product, and I will definitely recommend.

Your video lessons were very easy to consume and navigate. Furthermore, your analytics allowed me to identify specific areas where I needed further review within the lesson videos.

Your apps were a lifesaver as well. I would rifle through the vocab words on the subway and it made a big difference. I downloaded the math flashcards only a few days before my test but I'm certain they would have helped more if I had more time to work on them.

You guys are personable and followed up with me (multiple times!) on tips and additional services. You even gave me a free week extension so I could use Magoosh in the days leading up to my test! Your staff was very refreshing compared to dealing with some Kafkaesque customer service bot at Kaplan.

I'd give an unequivocal recommendation of your services to any friend who is preparing for the GRE.
