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 helped keep me on track, at a much lower price point than other test prep systems. I followed the one-month plan, and was happy to do small pieces of prep each day. While I couldn't keep up the pace with a full-time job (as the guide warned me), I still believe Magoosh helped me a lot. I learned general strategies (number sense, not looking at the verbal answers without my own answer), a sense for timing, and most importantly, I always had a plan to follow so I couldn't second-guess myself.

In addition to the Magoosh Premium content, which is great, other outside materials provided by Magoosh such as the vocabulary application/game, ebook, schedule plans, blogs, book review, etc. were very helpful. Within the premium content, things that I most like are email support and video instructions; these differentiate Magoosh from other similar services. Especially cheerful emails from everyone at Magoosh, starting with "Happy to help.." helped a lot through the stressful times of test preparation.

I relied almost solely on Magoosh to prepare for the GRE. As an Australia, I knew nothing about the GRE before I booked for exam date. Magoosh took me through everything I needed to know.

Helps a lot!
I really like the videos recorded for explaining how and why answers should be chosen. It gives me insight into how and what the verbal sections wants to test us.
Thanks a lot!

It's the only resource I used.
I used one of the existing plans (6weeks), and adapted it to my schedule. I started by going over all the lessons - combining some math and some verbal everyday. I also started doing the vocab flashcards on my phone in my downtime. After I finished all the lessons, I started with practice tests. I did one every alternate day. Went over my mistakes and practiced strategically based on my performance. I would also go back to do the questions I got wrong a few days later, and flagged it if I got it wrong again.
My last few days before the gre I did one test a day/only practiced questions.

Taught me all of my math, starting from scratch! I think I'm in love with Mike McGarry now.

The AWA tutorials were also fantastic, I wouldn't have known where to start without them.

I believe the most helpful part was the schedules, since they give you some order and put you in control of the preparation. The recommendations so as to what materials to read and which to avoid were also very helpful and time-saving. The questions provided helped, and the scored predictor is very nifty, although a bit discouraging at the beginning, when you're just getting to know the exam and obviously are below your potential.

Magoosh really broke down every subject matter. So the things that I had struggled to understand in paper GRE prep books were laid out for me in incredibly clear, simple terms. There were also amazing tips for understanding the test's tricks and how to do quick math calculations/estimations (something I am not innately good at). I feel like my score improved immensely by using Magoosh!

Magoosh's content is very relevant, approach of instructors is methodical and support is prompt. Video lessons have optimal length that helped me learn or review some areas quickly in between my regular work. Features like viewing time taken by other test takers on specific problem is very helpful.

Math was never a concern for me. Being an engineering student, it came naturally to me. Verbal was an area of concern, I was got amazing practice while doing Magoosh verbal question. I did some practice from Kaplan prior to getting Magoosh premium version. But I must say, Magoosh is the only prep which provides questions as difficult as ETS.
I will like to thank entire Magoosh team for providing awesome material and prompt response to all my queries.

I had no idea where to start studying for the GRE, Magoosh helped me immensely by providing the initial direction. From the Magoosh study plan I developed my own plan that worked for me using Magoosh materials and other suggested materials that I may not have encountered otherwise. My undergrad was in art and I hadn't thought much about math for about 10 years. The instructional math videos by Mike McGarry were invaluable. I not only reviewed math that I learned years ago, but learned new concepts. I didn't realize that I actually love math until I started studying with Magoosh! I raised my math score 15 points from my first practice test.

Magoosh really helped me with its adequate material in verbal section. I had only 15 days to prepare for the exam and I worked on every part for about 3 hours a day. The tips were too awesome and just helped me better my GRE score by 15 points.
Cheers :)

Magoosh was perfect for a student like me. I work full time, am planning a wedding, and trying to study for the GRE! I didn't have time to figure out a study plan for myself (I panicked! How am I going to do this?!) but then I found Magoosh. During every second of my very little free time over the last 4 months, I watched every video, did every problem and flashcard (twice!) and did a full length practice every weekend. I felt so confident and prepared going into that test. It took a lot of effort but absolutely worth it for the 14 point improvement! I can't recommend Magoosh enough for a flexible and affordable system that works extremely well.

Since practice on the computer is not like practice on the paper, Magoosh gives me a chance to practice on my computer just like the real exam.
