I had not done any academics in years. My math was very rusty. The lectures were concise and thorough, allowing me to quickly learn everything I needed. The two magoosh vocab apps and YouTube channel were all I used for vocabulary.

I was pretty solid on verbal from the start, but the kind of math questions the GRE posed were a source of struggle for me. While I had the knowledge necessary (in most cases) Magoosh helped me build strategies for recognizing question types and how to approach questions that looked complicated and break them into simpler parts.

After a gap of 2.5 years after my under graduation, my major concern was that whether I would be able to follow a structured study material anymore and am I still having the test taking capabilities. But the various practice modes in Magoosh GRE gradually pulled me into the groove of GRE while pinpointing my areas of weakness. After a heavy work schedule of about 10 hours a day, the study material and the answers to the questions which had a personalized touch kept my enthusiasm going. The statistics about my performance gave an idea whether I was ready to take the actual test. Great work done, Magoosh guys and gals.

Magoosh was a fantastic resource for me. I am working full-time and registered for the GRE only a month before I took it. I didn't have the time and wasn't interested in spending the money for a classroom based course. That said, I needed the extensive preparation - in particular for the quantitative section. While the score I got was not as high as I would have liked I know without the preparation through Magoosh it would have been lower. Furthermore, it was right in the range that your software predicted which is a credit to that system.

With lucid lessons, handy tips and tricks, preparation was not only easy but also fun. I diligently followed 3 months study plan (Verbal Focused). Moreover, the practice tests include experimental section, which simulates what you will see on the real monster! Besides, the flashcard app was always handy and intuitive, used to play around with them for the entire day. Highly recommended for those who don't know from where to begin the preparations and even for those who are flustered by their scores and would likely re-take the exam.

I used Magoosh mainly to practice text completion. The questions are well-designed, and close to ETS's way of thinking. They are often harder than those in the real test, which make me more confident during the real test.

The vocabulary flashcards helped improve my vocabulary significantly, which had a direct correlation on my verbal score. I am an immigrant whose first language is not English and I therefore do not have a particularly strong vocabulary, however, I scored a 163 on the verbal section, a success I directly attribute to Magoosh.

I really liked that there were so many practice questions and the score predictor--it gave me a better sense of what range I could score in. The study guide was helpful at first for me, to just get me in the routine of studying--I later adopted it to suit my own needs. The explanations were also great!

Great verbal practices, especially TC+SE. Quant questions are very useful too. I use the custom practice to adapt myself to the 20questions/30minutes pace.

Magoosh is actually much more difficult than the real test. After finishing the Magoosh Verbal, I took the GRE test and found it much easier than I had imagined. So I finished the test in a short time and got a relatively high score.
