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.

Lots of great practice questions and, particularly, explanations that taught principles and concepts necessary to correct errors in the future!

The math practice problems were exactly what I needed to boost my score by 10 points to impress graduate school programs!

Learning vocabulary and better coping with verbal. I was getting a good score on Verbal during mocks but somehow, I managed to screw it up during the actual test :-(

I had already taken the GRE and used another course. Magoosh provided me with a structure to review methodically and target the areas where I needed to improve. I only used the math side because I was very strong on the verbal without any prep so I cannot speak to that.

I had never taken the GRE before, and within 1.5 months felt really prepared going into the exam, thanks primarily to the practice questions and solution videos on the Magoosh website. I appreciated that the style of these practice questions closely matched those of the actual exam questions, and I liked the fact that Magoosh questions were a bit more difficult than the real thing.

It was great to have questions that were harder than the ones on the actual test. It made me feel very well prepared. Also was very helpful to have video lessons on math topics that were not as fresh. Great overall. I studied all the vocabulary, but again, felt that many of the harder words were not on the test.

The math questions were very helpful - the custom tests were also great for reviewing. That's what I needed to focus on, so I did not use verbal part nearly as much.

Was a great way to learn all the things that my book just didn't provide. Multiple ways of explaining the concept (text and video) were helpful as were the additional lessons on the topics. It gave me ways to target my studying so that I focused on the topics that I needed to and didn't have to waste time going through information I didn't need for the one little detail I missed out on. The ability to constantly retake the tests, retesting myself on the concepts I kept messing up on was extremely helpful and useful as well.

The lessons were great. Practice questions also helpful. The 90 day planner also helped me organize my time, although I diverted from it at the end. Much appreciated.

One stop shop for everything you need in the way of studying for the GRE! Great flashcards for learning vocab, great practice questions (both custom + full practice exams), terrific tutorial videos. The interface also got me used to what it would be like to take the actual exam -- taking prac exams on Magoosh was very similar to the real thing so nothing came as a surprise.
Data visualization of your own practice/progress is also really helpful.

Provided practice material for math, which was useful in identifying blind spots. Useful material for the verbal section.
Would have spent more time with the verbal material if I had time. I think the verbal material could have provided a 5-6 point boost (esp the reading and argument analysis stuff).

I used Magoosh as my last resort and I could not improve as much as I did if hadn't used it. Many thanks to Magoosh and I'll exploit it and do one more GRE test.
