Since practice on the computer is not like practice on the paper, Magoosh gives me a chance to practice on my computer just like the real exam.

How did Magoosh help you?
The math problem explanations were absolutely critical for me because it helps me so much to be walked through the solution of a problem. I also have a full time job so being able to easily and discreetly access my study material online during my lunch break was awesome. I may end up taking the GRE one more time to improve my math score but because of Magoosh I feel like I can actually submit these scores to some top programs!

I think Magoosh is good for people like me who can't afford the time or effort to read verbose preparatory books and prefer the video lecture format. The (large number of) practice questions are on par with the actual test. Metrics like the average time, predicted score and comparison with other users helped me adjust my pacing and understand my weak areas. Magoosh flashcards were the only ones I used for vocabulary. Although I used the Help option only once, the support was prompt.

My verbal section was really weak and I owe every verbal GRE point to Magoosh test prep. The lecture videos, vocab app and problem solutions taught me a great deal about how to solve the verbal questions and tremendously improved my English. Even though my maths was already strong, Magoosh math lectures and problem solutions taught me great tricks to quickly solve math questions on GRE.

Magoosh provided me with sufficient practice questions that are typically harder than the actual test, both in math and verbal. This makes me relaxed at the actial test. The video explanation for every question is very helpful.

Magoosh helped me a lot. It has excellent video resources and pool of question for each difficulty level. But most importantly I adore the solicitousness of the Magoosh mentors. The gentle reminders if not worked for long, instant replies to all queries and overall student friendliness is unmatchable. Thank you Maggosh.

The Study Plans (90 Day Beginner) kept me on a structured path until test day. The videos, especially Math videos by Mike, were clutch for me. Being able to reference the video after an incorrect answer in your question bank was really helpful. I was scoring in the 305 range on my first practice test, but hit 321 on test day!

I loved the intensive practice Magoosh gave me. Solving 1100+ problems, plus some others from MPrep really delivered. I also used the Vocab Builder and Flashcards. Though the words are the same, each provides a slightly different context in which each word can be used- a very important skill to learn for the GRE.
