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.

Not only were the questions helpful and highly indicative of the material on the test, the customer service team was amazing. Everytime I emailed them for more in-depth clarification on why a given answer was correct, they were happy to help and expedient in their reply. Thanks Magoosh!!

The only tools I used to study for the GRE were provided by Magoosh. I heavily utilized the verbal and math flashcards on my phone, and I think I watched every math video lesson available. In fact, I attribute my 7 point increase in my quant score solely to resources offered by Magoosh. After receiving my initial quant score of 154 (not nearly high enough for Neuroscience grad programs!), I really cracked down and answered practice question after practice question. Magoosh videos are incredibly helpful, especially with the type of inside knowledge they provide regarding tips and tricks for the test itself. Can't thank you enough, Magoosh!

Magoosh provided me with a study plan to get started from as well as the more obvious practice questions. I found that the questions were very similar to those on the actual test which was an enormous boon.

It helped me brush up on my math skills. I watched all the math videos, and I think they really helped me learn what I needed to know for the exam.

I think that the amount of questions and lessons available on Magoosh provided a rough study plan that was flexible, which was very helpful to me. Even though I knew I needed a study plan that was able to force me to concentrate, I also wanted to be able to adjust it as I went along, and Magoosh was perfect in meeting my requirements. In my opinion, the best thing was that every time I was stuck on a question or needed more explanations, I could reach out and get a reply very soon.

As a prospective Engineering student, I was pretty confident with math, so I was a bit skeptical about needing help. However, the Magoosh math lessons and questions went right back to fundamentals, and helped me develop some really simple skills and strategies which I wouldn't have otherwise used. Furthermore, through practice, lessons and flashcards, I was really able to boost my confidence in the verbal section. So much so that I ended up with a better verbal score than math score! Moreover - all this content was tailored to GRE-style questions. There were no real surprises on test day. My only regret is not beginning my study sooner - but the free study plans Magoosh offer give great structure, which helps to avoid both procrastination and panic!

I was overwhelmed with choices about how to get started preparing for the GRE. Everything felt expensive, similar, and ultimately more about selling me things than helping me succeed.

But, when I stumbled across Magoosh, it seemed special right off the bat. It seemed like the dark horse of the pack: honest, smart, and friendly. The videos were the right length and tone... Just two site visits into my free trial had started, and I was hooked!

The best surprise: the testimonials were true, Magoosh slipped right into my life style, and I felt like I had the tools I needed to get to my goal score! I downloaded the vocabulary and math flashcards onto my phone, printed a study plan to keep in my bag, and watched the videos from my room. I was able to steal time here and there during my day, and the Magoosh tutors were always in my corner. It was fabulous, and I couldn't have done it without Magoosh! I even think I'll miss logging on to watch my dashboard improve, watch a video for a solution that blows my mind, or listen to Mike tell me that memorizing something would be "the worst idea." When I walked away from the test center with my new GRE score (much higher than my goal score), I knew all the time and effort had been worth it.

Thank you, Magoosh! Thanks for making and keeping things simple, straight-forward, on point, and dignified (didn't need to feel like I was free advertising walking around DC)! I will be singing your praises to all. Thank you so much!!!

Knowing that I had paid money for a prep program made me feel more impetus to use it. I enjoyed the video format for understanding what I'd missed on questions.

LOVED THE VIDEOS - ESPECIALLY THE MATH ONES. I GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE 32 YRS AGO SO THE COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED. I APPRECIATED THE BIG PICTURE VIEW OFFERED BY MARK MCGUIRE.
