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 helped keep me on track, at a much lower price point than other test prep systems. I followed the one-month plan, and was happy to do small pieces of prep each day. While I couldn't keep up the pace with a full-time job (as the guide warned me), I still believe Magoosh helped me a lot. I learned general strategies (number sense, not looking at the verbal answers without my own answer), a sense for timing, and most importantly, I always had a plan to follow so I couldn't second-guess myself.

Magoosh helped me diagnose individual issues and deficiencies I had and assisted me with specific video lessons and practice questions to help me learn or to hone my skills. Their mobile app proved incredibly convenient with the ability to learn and review vocabulary on my daily commute, or whenever I was away from a computer.

Magoosh was extremely helpful in managing my study time, with their study plan that mapped out how I should be preparing for the exam in the time that I had before my test date. The videos taught me useful strategies for tackling each question type that helped me do well.

The practice questions and practice test on Magoosh.com were a big help in prepping me for the GRE. The video lessons for math were invaluable in helping me review. But my favorite thing was the Vocabulary Builder app I could use on my Android phone. It made it easy to review throughout the day. I liked how it kept track of the words I didn't know and repeated them several times until I got them down.

The pool of practice questions, and explanations were extremely helpful. As well as the vocab flashcards - I was pretty much using them whenever I had spare time while traveling. I also appreciate the helpdesk for answering my queries.

The videos were very helpful -- even those which I thought I already knew. Mike and Chris really know what they're doing. The flashcard app was key to doing well on the verbal section.

I followed the one-month study plan and found it really efficient to prepare for the test in such a short time. The Verbal video lessons and the vocabulary flashcards were specially helpful to me because English is not my first language. And I really appreciated the number sense tips from the Math video lessons.

Educating me on how the test would be structured, including what the questions would look like and what the test makers wanted in their answers.

The math videos were extremely helpful as it had been many years since I had done this kind of math.

The timed practice tests were a great way to prepare for the actual test.

Strategies to use on the essay section were very helpful.

The app was great because it allowed me to study anytime, anywhere--perfect for a neurotic student like myself. (-:

I'm not great at self-studying, so I knew from the start that I needed some sort of structured study method. But, I wasn't thrilled about the idea of taking/paying for a full set of classes which I did years ago to prepare for the SAT. When a friend recommended Magoosh, I checked it out. There was a 4-week, daily study plan which was perfect for me. I just followed the plan, studied intensively for a few hours each day, and I felt super confident going into the test. It was my first time taking it, and I am so happy with my score. Before I started the study plan four weeks ago, I knew absolutely nothing about the GRE, and now I feel like a GRE-pro.

Best parts: lots of practice problems, video explanations for practice problem answers, great lesson videos, good balance between the Official Guide and the online lessons, vocab app, excellent organization all-around, helpful tips in lesson videos (i.e. "this will only show up in advanced sections," or "the GRE loves these types of questions," or "this is tricky for most students," etc.)

I used Magoosh to prepare for the quantative part of GRE. I didn't do a lot of math in the last 10 years and felt very insecure.

I found the videos very useful: there are a lot of math tutorials out there, but the Magoosh ones are specifically focused on what's asked in GRE. I used the shortcuts and tips given in these videos during the actual test.

The practice secion of the site is great: it gives you an opportunity to work in an environment similar to the actual GRE - you don't just practice your math skills, but also learn to prioritize and budget your time (very important for getting a good score on GRE!). It also provides a lot of flexibility - you can work in timed or untimed mode, practice specific concepts, review the problems you solved wrong, etc.

Overall - great value for the money and very positive experience of using the site! Thank you, tutors and developers!

Magus helped me immensely, particularly as a refresher on certain math subjects. I could choose which lessons to focus on knowing what my weaknesses were. The practice questions and practice tests were very helpful in getting me back into "test-taking" mode and being familiar with the types of questions that are asked and how to answer them most efficiently. The phone apps were helpful in being able to study during a commute, and the options of video and text explanations for each questions supports different kinds of learners.

Magoosh helped by focusing on clear strategies and the content that the GRE tests. The lessons really helped me with time-saving strategies. The practice tool is an amazing resource, especially with the adaptive feature! I thought it simulated the test very well, which had me better prepared for when questions suddenly got harder.
Before Magoosh, I just kept answering practice questions from the ETS practice material. This was not helpful because there was no guidance on what to study, leaving me feeling lost.
With Magoosh's preparation there were no surprises and the test seemed much less daunting than before.
