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.

Extremely helpful in preparing for both the material on the test and the test itself. Provided insight and understanding to what would/would not be tested, how the test is scored, strategies for test-taking, etc.

- All the math content was very clear, well-developed, pacing was just right, with really good practice questions.
- The hundreds of questions - the practice from these was invaluable!
- The Analyze an Argument videos were great with the fallacies outlined.
- Verbal strategies and the verbal videos were actually fun, Chris is a very engaging speaker.

Getting me back up to speed on the basics, clearly outlining the fundamental concepts underlying the problems AND showing me intelligent approaches to problem solving.

Adaptive practice was very good to tailor my training.

The note function was great. (I wish I was a bit more saavy on the notes at the beginning; I failed to utilize them as effectively as possible.)

All in all, it was very good to get me back in the game and improve my score. I had to deal with some personal crises during my principal GRE study time that took away from my efforts, or I would have been able to certainly score even higher.

Magoosh has a wealth of helpful resources at an affordable price. I really liked the dashboard statistics, the ability to customize timed practice sessions, and the vocabulary flashcards. Magoosh's customer service was attentive and prompt.

Thank you for the tough standards laid out by your questions. The pitfall questions are very much akin to what appears on the GRE.

Vocabulary, especially sentence completion.
I think Magoosh questions in Verbal sections are harder than in the actual test. So when I become pretty comfortable answering your questions, I feel much more confident when I'm taking the actual test.

I believe using magoosh has improved my score by 10 points each on both the sections. Magoosh has all the material required for a solid gre prep. and their study plans help a lot too. Most important- give as many tests as possible..my quant score increase by atleast 5 by giving lots of mock tests.

The Magoosh prep program was clear, concise and complete. I work full time so don't have a lot of time to set aside for in-person coursework. Happily, the Magoosh materials enabled me to easily fit studying into my work breaks and evenings. It provides a manageable way to study for someone who is really busy. The materials were also more difficult than the actual GRE, which made taking the test a pleasant surprise. I ended up scoring higher than I did on any practice test, and this was despite multiple interruptions and loud noises during the exam. I'm so happy I chose Magoosh instead of the overpriced in-person courses.

It helped me a lot. Without preparation I had given an official GRE mock in which I scored 308. In one and half month preparation, I touched 325 in the official GRE mock. I did some silly things (time management) and dropped to 320 in the actual GRE. But still I'm sure I could not get past 325 considering how tricky I felt the exam was. Thank you Magoosh for this quick preparation.

Magoosh helped me see the logic behind the GRE questions. I felt much more confident answering both verbal and quantitative questions because I had a better sense of how to problem solve creatively. I truly struggle with math so the video tutorials, tips, and tricks helped me immensely.
