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 really brought my Quant score to the next level. I was extremely impressed with out detailed the videos were. They underscored the most important concepts, and even gave a few tricks and shortcuts along the way.

The math sections and overall feel of the exam. I had three weeks to study while still in school full time with a part time job. I didn't have much time, but I was able to improve my math score by 8 points and my overall by 9. I feel I now feel that I have better understanding of mathematical concepts.

Magoosh was fantastic! It helped me to plan my study time, kept me focus, and gave me the tools I needed to do my best. I used the website, but also apps for my iPhone and the Google Chrome extension to learn vocab. All of the platforms were attractive and user friendly. Most importantly, the videos helped me to learn math I hadn't used in many years! I went from completely lost in math, to quite comfortable in a few weeks.

One of the most helpful aspects of Magoosh is the format. Specifically, being able to attempt a problem and flag it for later review or immediately watch the explanation video via the link provided made studying much more efficient and enjoyable. Another strength of the Magoosh format is that it enables each person to tailor their preparation based on their personal strengths and weaknesses without wasting large amounts of time flipping through books and keeping additional notes. I can easily log in and use the question filters to see where I need to focus and which areas I have mastered. Overall, the system is well designed and works as intended.

The vast amount of practice questions and their explanations were incredibly helpful. Also, one huge advantage of practice tests on Magoosh are that they include a experimental section that better prepared me for the grind of the real GRE test.

Magoosh's math lessons by Mr Tracy were very helpful for a quick Math review.I liked them a lot. Also, the english lessons were very useful. Magoosh's question bank is good.

I guess i probably need to take the GRE again since my Quant score seems a bit low.

...Really a lot. I just put all my time and energy on Magoosh and totally followed your order on the Verbal Part(Since I'm a Chinese student, Math is just ...so easy). From 142(the first exercise) to 158,I just don't know how it happen.
Thank you.

I've always had trouble with standardized tests. Through high school I had a very non-traditional education. While writing and thinking were heavily emphasized, important aspects of learning such as time management strategies and rigorous analytical thinking were things I had to learn on my own. I wasn't surprised when on an early GRE practice test I ended up with a Verbal score of 154 and a Math score of 151. I was desperate to improve. I found Magoosh because I was looking for a less expensive alternative to hiring a tutor. I decided that what an online tutoring experience would lack in personal feedback I could make up for with commitment and self-motivation. It worked out. I ended up increasing my overall score by 15 points to 165 in Verbal and 155 in Math. This helps in significantly strengthening my applications for English and History grad programs. In addition to mobile apps and fully comprehensive video explanations, Magoosh's practice questions are its greatest strength. There were plenty questions of all difficulty levels to go through over the two months I spent studying. And the metrics Magoosh tracks (what questions I was best at, what questions I needed to improve on, how long I was taking to answer the questions) seemed to be just as useful as paying a tutor to tell me the same things - simplifying things a bit there. I couldn't be happier with my Magoosh experience and I really look forward to seeing the many more success stories that will be on the website in the future.

Magoosh's TC and SE questions are wonderful, and they are just like the real GRE questions. Besides, I think "Customize your practice" is helpful because this makes it easier for me to choose the questions I want to practice. Thank you so much!

Given that I had recently started working, large blocks of time for study was hard to allot. I used magoosh for incremental but sustained study, using up my travel time effectively. Further, it is far less taxing to use videos and online questions than using a clunky guide or reference books. The score predictor is quite accurate too and helped me approach exam day with confidence.

It is really the greatest product I've ever used for GRE, not only with high quality problem sets, but also detailed explanations for every question. The best part is I could email to you whenever I have a question in terms of everything related to the exam preparation. Your memberships are just so professional and sweet, with full patience and kindness, thank you so much!

I did all the Magoosh verbal exercises. During that, I wrote down all the words that I did't know and translated all the sentences. This process gave a natural sense of what I should fill in the blanks.

The vocabulary app was fabulous as I learn vocabulary best through flashcards.

The math videos were probably the one reason I scored above 154 or so in quant - I learned new and more efficient ways of solving problems that I had been cumbersome for me when using high school techniques. I also developed a much stronger number sense and pattern-matching skill than before.
