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.

it was great for the math section! the techniques were extremely helpful and made the test a breeze. if I made any mistakes, it was probably due to an error in calculations rather than being confused

The explanation videos and the ability to play at 1.5X speed were extremely useful features. Well organised content. I scored 320 with ETS diagnostic test and I ended up with 331 after relying on Magoosh materials. I am very impressed by the quality you guys offer at such an affordable price.

In so many ways...it gave me confidence in retaking the GRE which also gave me the gift of peace of mind. I was much more relaxed taking the exam this time around, which allowed me to think more clearly and panic less. I looked forward to studying the verbal sections and used it as a treat after studying for math, since math is much more difficult for me.

The math lessons were great and a big help. Also the practice tests were a very good tool. I used the 30 day intensive study plan, but focused almost exclusively on the math lessons.

Magoosh gave me all the lessons I needed to learn the basic concepts, and the practice to master them. Having the dashboard and options to review certain topics was very useful, as was the practice test - it was the only one I used.

I did all the practice problems I could on Magoosh and watched all the lectures for the questions I got wrong. Magoosh really helped me to think strategically about how I unwrapped each problem and analyzed what was the core concept being asked and identified the best approach.

In all ways possible.. I wouldn't have been able to score anything more than a 310 if it was not for Magoosh. Both the Math and Verbal tutorial classes were so helpful.

Magoosh helped me organise my study time effectively. The math videos were helpful (although sometimes confusing) and the practice quant and verbal questions were excellent. The Google app that presents new words upon opening new tabs and the cell phone vocab app were invaluable.

Helped me to pace my studying. Moving through the videos ensured I steadily and consistently studied. I also appreciated how conceptual the math tutorials were - wish I learned math that way the first time around!

I never had a problem with Math, so my main motivation for using Magoosh was verbal. My previous exam was the day after my engagement day, naturally no preparation (and concentration!) was possible. I registered to Magoosh beta plan months ago, intended to really use it. But again didn't have time to actually start, this time due to heavy research schedule. Yet I heeded the advice of the Magoosh plans and subscribed to The Economist. From 7 months ago, I almost everyday made myself to read at least two articles in different fields from Economist, Atlantic, New York Times or The Guardian. Then about two weeks ago I started to review the vocab using Magoosh Flashcards and Vocabulary Builder. 3 days before the exam I read Magoosh Complete GRE eBook and Math eBook, and I spent the last two days solving review questions in my dashboard. It was a great help really, made me feel the mood of the exam. On the day of the exam (specifically Math sections) I felt at ease. Although I didn't use much of the material, I'm really happy I bought the beta plan; the parts that I used helped me a lot in the exam.

Magoosh provided me online access so I was able to study for GRE anywhere. I had very less time to prepare for GRE - only a month and I had a lot of other commitments during this period like work. Magoosh allowed me to be very flexible.
The videos were very informative and the constant practice quizzes after each module helped cement concepts even more for me. The predictive score was also very accurate. I got a score right in that range.

Magoosh was a huge help in everything from vocabulary to study plans, from practice tests to lesson videos. It is probably the least commercial of all the GRE test preparation programmes. Amazing stuff guys. Keep the good work going!
