How did Magoosh help you?
I benefitted from the lessons and the practice questions, but the overall study plan have the best direction. I used all of flash card apps for both math and verbal as well as the recommended resources, Manhattan Prep book/tests and the Official GRE book. I took a total of 7 practice tests. I was disappointed in the math results, but I just needed more time to move from exposure to second nature level. I found the verbal strategies to be helpful as well.

I think it helped most with my math. I hadn't taken a math class in 15 or more years so the math refresher was very helpful. Also, more generally, the practice questions were extremely useful for getting me comfortable with the style of questions for both Math and verbal.

How did Magoosh help you?
It was my first time taking the GRE, but I knew the math would destroy me without some recap. The vocabulary flashcards were surprisingly helpful. After a gruelling four hour battle I emerged victorious, with only a few surface wounds. So a dramatic interpretation might read something like, "Magoosh prepared me for battle and saved me from the fiery wrath of the GRE."

Magoosh is a great online study tool. It's rare, at least in my experience, to come across an online study tool that actually provides meaningful material and well thought out explanations. Typically, I just see a mediocre rehash of the same material printed in those prep books (*cough* looking at you Kaplan).

The freedom that Magoosh lends to its users in regards to customizing practice sessions is simply invaluable. I also really loved that each question had a video explanation and a detailed text explanation for when I was too lazy to watch a 2 minute video.

The Magoosh help line was also prompt in addressing any further questions I had or needed clarification on - which just added to the overall impression of Magoosh as a service.
