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.

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 loved the prompt replies I got on my queries. Also all the videos including lesson videos and explanations for questions, were amazing. The videos clarify the basics for you in such a simple manner that the concepts will stay with you long after GRE. Amazing product.

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.

Laid out a clear path of study for the math topics; lots and lots of practice questions that were as hard as the actual GRE.

The math problem explanations were absolutely critical for me because it helps me so much to be walked through the solution of a problem. I also have a full time job so being able to easily and discreetly access my study material online during my lunch break was awesome. I may end up taking the GRE one more time to improve my math score but because of Magoosh I feel like I can actually submit these scores to some top programs!

I think Magoosh is good for people like me who can't afford the time or effort to read verbose preparatory books and prefer the video lecture format. The (large number of) practice questions are on par with the actual test. Metrics like the average time, predicted score and comparison with other users helped me adjust my pacing and understand my weak areas. Magoosh flashcards were the only ones I used for vocabulary. Although I used the Help option only once, the support was prompt.

My verbal section was really weak and I owe every verbal GRE point to Magoosh test prep. The lecture videos, vocab app and problem solutions taught me a great deal about how to solve the verbal questions and tremendously improved my English. Even though my maths was already strong, Magoosh math lectures and problem solutions taught me great tricks to quickly solve math questions on GRE.

The plethora of practice problems were very useful just to get my mind working the right way and to improve my problem-solving skills. I also loved the recommendations of other materials and the study schedules where I could identify which tests and resources would be the most useful.
