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.

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.

Magoosh videos were amazingly helpful for the quantitative material. I am so glad that I used those videos and I'm sure they made a huge difference in my score. I have always enjoyed Math but haven't touched this level of material in about 14 years.

I don't think I was ever bad at GRE math before I used Magoosh, but I kept messing up because I either read the question incorrectly, or because I just didn't know a simpler way to solve the question. Magoosh really helped with those issues. As for verbal , Magoosh's vocab builder app , the flashcards app , and the lessons on how to tackle various types of verbal questions prepared me well enough for the verbal section so that I felt quite comfortable answering most of the questions on there.

Magoosh was the primary source for all of my GRE preparation, I didn't look at any other material from any other source. Solving all the Magoosh practice questions trained me well enough for the actual test. Also Magoosh GRE flashcards app and Magoosh Vocab builder were very helpful amd were my only source for preparing vocab.

I was really rusty on math, and the video lessons were really comprehensive. The lessons on writing essays really helped me organize my time better. I felt so much more at ease with the essays because I learned to go in with a game plan. I also love the score predictor and the way you can customize practices. The detailed study plans also kept me from feeling too overwhelmed. Everyone I was in contact with from the Magoosh team was incredibly nice. They extended my account access because my studying didn't go according to plan last year. I really like how you can email someone for a detailed explanation of ETS study material (because they don't always give great explanations, if any). What drew me in, though, were the GRE blog posts. They felt so honest, especially the book reviews, and that (along with the free trial) was what gained my trust. It didn't feel like another company trying to sucker me out of my money.
