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 helps by preparing you for the most difficult questions by providing with GRE specific strategies and examples. The division of questions section-wise and difficulty wise pretty awesome. Vocabulary application covers the most probable GRE words. SE and TC explaination and the number of questiions on offer is exhaustive. Thanks Magoosh!! I would highy suggest all GRE test takers to use it and see amazing improvements in their scores.

Magoosh's study plan is the most systematic way anyone can study for GRE. The videos are really good. The Magoosh vocab builder app is all you need to get a good score on the verbal section. The mock tests are at a higher difficulty level than most of the tests available online and hence closest to the actual test.

It was awesome to have so many practice problems, especially ones at higher difficulty levels. That was essential for making me feel prepared. I also liked the built-in timer options. Overall, practicing with Magoosh came as close to the actual experience as possible, except with a better UI.
Videos are excellent--both lessons and problem explanations. Flashcards too.
Thanks for developing such a great product!

As a non-native English speaker, vocabulary is the first obstacle to GRE verbal. After expanding my vocabulary, I start to use Magoosh. The video lessons are very helpful and the practices are well designed and similar to the real test, although I think the VERY HARD questions are much more difficult than most of the real test, practice them a lot if you wanna get verbal 160+.

The lesson videos, especially the math videos, were incredibly useful in helping me to brush up on a lot of my rusty knowledge. In addition, Magoosh's practice questions and user interface are very similar to the one seen on the real test, so once test day came my nerves were much calmer due to the familiarity acquired by doing 100s of Magoosh practice problems. Many of the skills I picked up from the math and verbal videos will probably be useful to me even after the GRE. Everything is self-paced, and the comprehensive text and video explanations after each question help to guide you through them step by step. They're also great about responding promptly and thoroughly to your questions. I've already recommended Magoosh to several of my friends - it's awesome!

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.

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.
