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.

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.

I only used Magoosh to prepare for the GRE. The thorough video lessons and the wide array of practice problems helped me overcome my weaknesses in both the Quantitative and Verbal Sections.

The vocabulary flash cards were extremely helpful, the math practice questions were more challenging than the actual GRE and the passage comprehension questions were comparable to the GRE (unlike some other prep courses).

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.
