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.

I've always struggled with math sections on standardized tests, and Magoosh is the only test prep service that has actually made a difference for me. I felt prepared taking the test and the videos gave me the confidence to tackle problems I probably would have given up on before. Thank you! (Plus, if you ask a question these guys are the sweetest! Each of them clearly understands teaching in the full sense of the word.)

I found the time saving strategies particularly useful in the math sections of the test. I did not use the calculator at all. It were really the little things which I learned from the lesson videos which helped me ace the math sections.

Magoosh was great! The math videos really helped me brush up on the tangible skills I needed for the test. I also loved the vocab flash cards.

It pools all of the resources that I need to prepare for the GRE test together, so that I could stay focus in stead of being overwhelmed by a flood of prep books.

The videos were amazing resources - I viewed them all - multiple times! Big props to Chris and Mike (and the rest of the team!). I have a long daily commute so I spend 10+ hours in the car every week. While I couldn't WATCH the videos while I drove, it was helpful for me to listen to them during a time that would be otherwise wasted - and since I spent several hours of every day studying, even passive listening was a nice way to review as I started or ended my day.

Also, your apps were super helpful. I really enjoyed the verbal quiz app - this and the GMAT app were my constant companions as I walked around campus or stood in lines.

I didn't really have any idea of what the GRE structure was, what was on it, or how to study for it. Magoosh gave me a comprehensive, easy to use learning platform that took me from totally unprepared to exceeding my goals in six weeks. Really happy!

Helpful in every way. Where to start. As I had heard from reviews, the questions were really tough and well thought out. Some were ambiguous or very subtle but all over helped me reach a very high level for GRE. The help service is simply awesome. I have bothered you guys constantly but I got really helpful replies from all the Magoosh help guys. Thank you Adam, Carolyn, Sasha, Pete,Niloufar,Mark,Davi.etc I am sorry if I am forgetting anyone else, but the replies were all very nice and insightful.

Magoosh has been a wonderful mentor to me. I studied for around 4 months before taking the exam and I was able to get a decent score of 321. I would recommend magoosh to all the aspirants who want to take GRE. The time bound practice provided by magoosh helps to provide the test environment from Day 1.

I scored much higher than I expected, and I passed the verbal score that my school requires. Even though I'm a second language learner in English, Magoosh has prepared me for enough vocab for the test. Besides, the video lessons are extremely helpful, and Magoosh's study plan helps me to stay on track. No matter how I like to procrastinate, I still notice that there's much more I need to study and thus gain some self-discipline because of the schedule. Simply put, I'll definitely recommend Magoosh to my friends who are taking or about to take GRE now.

TC and SE questions are extremely helpful in practicing the logic and building up the vocabulary.
The flashcards are helpful for building up vocab too.
I only did a few very hard math problems due to limit of time and confidence in doing math well, but these questions include all the tricks that GRE play in their math problems and very helpful for me to be aware of it.
The tutors are also very helpful in answering my questions, very patient and clear in their explanation.
