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.

Magoosh helped me gain confidence in a short span of 15 days and I scored lot better in verbal section. The custom practice sessions helped me with my weak areas such as RC's and Data Interpretation.

I only had less than one month for preparing my GRE text. Even so, Magoosh just helped me save a lot of time since all the lessons are extremely concise but closely relevant to the test.

The videos explaining the questions are really helpful. The arrangement of math lessons are constructive and friendly, that I've picked up those concepts without feeling frustrated.

I think Magoosh helped me a lot because of the unique questions in Magoosh. Like math, the questions are full of traps so that you have to be more cautious. And the average difficulty of verbal section, in my view, is harder than that in actual GRE test. Though I'm not a native speaker, I still regard Magoosh as my first choice. I would take GRE test a few months later again to improve Verbal points.

I focused just on the math videos. I'd used prep books from the library (Kaplan, Barron's, etc.) before my first attempt at the GRE and was very disappointed in my math score--they didn't prepare me for the type of math I actually encountered, while Magoosh did. I didn't find Magoosh until too late in the game the first time around, and I also thought going through the prep books and free websites would suffice. This is definitely worth paying for. I didn't have much time to prepare for a retake; had I, I anticipate my math score would've gone up even higher. Given the short amount of time I had (what equated to less than 3 weeks), improving 4 points was good.
