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.

Practice questions on Magoosh are harder than those in my GRE. So I find it much easier to complete the actual test.

The practice tests familiarized me with the test format. I had a clear idea of what the real exam would be like after taking 6 or 7 practice tests. I heard people saying the magoosh verbal questions are harder than the real test, but the good side is this makes me feel the real test questions are not so difficult.

Magoosh helped me with verbal a lot. I don't like learning words and magoosh explained that learning vocabulary in context is important then just learning words. I score more verbal then last time without even learning words.

Magoosh helped me by giving me an actual study plan to follow instead of having to just wing it on my own. It gave me structure and a guide for just how to succeed. I focused on the math section because this was what I wanted to improve and I was blown away by how in depth Magoosh went in to all the math concepts. All of the lesson videos, practice problems, and solutions were without a doubt the reason I was able to improve. If I had more time to study, I think I could have done even better!

I came to Magoosh for the one-month study plan, since that was the time I had before my test. I followed it to the letter.

The huge database of exercises was very helpful. I believe the key to a high score is not making dumb distraction or nervousness mistakes; doing hundreds of exercises in timed conditions helped build the confidence I needed to feel comfortable and avoid such mistakes during the test itself.

I knew that math would be the hardest part of the GRE for me, so I watched all of the math videos and went though the practice problems to make sure I understood. Magoosh helped me be much more confident on the math section.

The video lessons are almost comprehensive and offer useful techniques for mastering the GRE. I particularly enjoyed Chris's Verbal section videos. The practice questions Magoosh has are certainly way more challenging than the standard GRE questions, but definitely prepared me well for the Quant section. I also found the flashcards extremely helpful, particularly Chris's paper flashcards.

I needed something from which i could study at my own convenience. Magoosh gave me that. My high score in math is solely because of magoosh and in verbal i would have done better had i not missed some questions due to my speed.

Math exercises helped me to be more careful and be more aware of the "traps" in the test. Besides, after dealing with so many exercises in Magoosh my speed in the verbal section has been improved a lot, and I am doing far more better in TC/SE than before.

It was specially useful in recognizing and solving the tricky questions in the Quantitative part of the exam. It also helped me recognizing the most common words for the Verbal part and practice with them before the exam.

I enjoyed the assortment of study options and tools, and definitely appreciated the abundance of practice questions. I'm highly disappointed with my score (considering the programs I'm interested in and the amount of studying I did), but I can't say it was due to a shortcoming on Magoosh's part. I've just never been a consistently good test-taker.
