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 provides practice tests that is close to the real test! What is awesome is that magoosh provide explanation for each question, no matter verbal or quantitative sections. This helps me to understand why the answer is this one rather than that one, and helps me save time from asking other people. Also, the clear explanations let me know I have to work harder on which part of the test. For example, I may focus on the wrong key words or are misguide by some deceptive selections, and I can avoid this by the help of explanations.

Magoosh provides both excellent study material and well organized study plans to choose from. I followed the one-month study plan and referred to nothing but the official guide other than Magoosh to receive my target score :)

The organized lessons with practice problems helped me systematically review and learn material. Practice problems offered immediate feedback to learn what I needed to improve. The mobile apps kept me studying all of the time, whenever I had time. The flashcards allowed me to sit in the sun while learning. Magoosh made studying fun.

All the practice problems helped be to prepare for the style of question on the test. I also liked that the questions were rigorous, compared to other study books I used. I'd rather study hard questions than easy ones. I also preferred the online format.

Quantitative
- Teaching material on Quantitative was spot on.
- The exercises at end of each lesson properly reflected the content in the lecture.
- The workout problems were very helpful.
- I wouldn't touch what you have in Quant.. except more workout problems would always help.

Verbal
- The vocabulary Magoosh app was extremely helpful. It is the single most reason I bought Magoosh in the first place.
- The explanations to each of the work out questions were very helpful in building strategies for sentence completion and sentence equivalence.

Special thanks to all the help tickets that were resolved with care. Their feedback was timely and effective.

I had taken the GRE before, but scored horribly on the math section. So I signed up with Magoosh and started from the basics. Following the 3 month study guide I pretty much retaught myself all the math I had forgotten. I loved the videos and that each practice problem came with a video explanation.

At first, they were so tough for me to solve.
But after solving all questions magoosh offered, I could get a nice score in short time. It was very helpful.

I am applying to engineering schools so really only used the math section. Incredibly helpful. I was using Manhattan and that was good, but your interactive format changed everything for me. I was getting 160 on math, but increased to 164 through your website. That is why your program was so helpful, I did all the "hard" and "very hard" questions and didn't waste my time with the easy ones. No other program let me filter through the easy ones and only work on the difficult. Remarkably helpful.

I didn't study verbal. Interestingly I had read an article on your website months ago (before I ever bought the program) that said to read The Economist and some other publications every day. I immediately bought the online version of The Economist and started reading a few articles a day on my lunch breaks. I had a dictionary open on the tab over and looked up any word I didn't know. Just by doing this my verbal went from 153 to 163. So while I didn't use your program, your three paragraph blog improved my verbal 10 points.

Thank you for everything. This score solidified my applications. Keep doing what you are doing, I have already told may people that the only affordable way to study for the GRE is with Magoosh combined with reading The Economist and perhaps Manhattan to supplement.
