How did Magoosh help you?
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.

The lessons helped me a lot. They provided me with the material and questions to practise. A perfect maths score would not have been possible without Magoosh.

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.

How did Magoosh help you?
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.

it provided a lot of question.
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.

How did Magoosh help you?
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!
