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 provided a systematic way to review all relevant math concepts with engaging videos to keep me from becoming distracted. The section quizzes helped me identify where I needed to improve, and the large question bank kept practice tests fresh for multiple months of studying.

The structure allowed me to plan my studying around my work schedule. Furthermore, the order in which information was presented and the amount of practice provided helped out.

Magoosh is the absolute best - it’s the perfect balance of flexibility and structure for people working full-time, in that I was able to tailor their study plan to fit my existing schedule. The Magoosh material not only helped me to relearn concepts I hadn’t seen in years (especially the math), but also was crucial in teaching me how to approach different kinds of problems, and how to learn from my mistakes over time. I’m so grateful for the program!

I was looking to improve my math scores (I am applying to engineering graduate programs and the math scores are the limiting factor for entry). Magoosh gave me the chance to run hundreds of math problems and really cater my studying to a few specific topics that troubled me. I was able to improve my math score by 6 points, which sets me up well for my graduate school applications.

The math videos were a great refresher of the test’s math content. I was only able to spend about a week preparing for the exam and I don’t know how I could have prepared for the math as easily without them.

I briefly used Magoosh to prepare before I took the GRE in December 2017 after completing a Manhattan Prep course. Although the practice questions were helpful, I wasn't sure how to tackle learning new content because there wasn't a curriculum. When I started preparing for the GRE last month, I used the one month advanced dashboard that guides you through which lessons to complete. It was incredibly helpful to have a study plan that suggested lessons and the types of questions I needed to practice.

Magoosh broke everything down into simple terms. It went way back to middle school and taught me all the simple skills! GRE Math is really all about the small building blocks! For both the math and verbal sections, they taught tips and tricks to word smarter, not harder. My score improved IMMENSELY after using Magoosh! I am recommending to everyone I know. Thank you, Magoosh!

Magoosh made it very clear exactly what I needed to study for the test, how to pace myself, and provided all the materials in perfectly sized pieces for each day of study! I ended up becoming really obsessed with solving very hard GRE math problems every day - very much at the bemusement of my friends. I ended up really liking studying for the test. Expanding my vocabulary made me suddenly cognizant of so many common(ish) words I had been ignoring my whole life. And solving math puzzles is just plain fun, I'll definitely continue doing them even though I've already taken the test!

Magoosh provided me the framework to build a foundation (I am a very weak math test-taker - in high school I scored a 15 on the ACT math section) and to move into more advanced concepts at my own rate.

Magoosh provides cogent, relevant, solid and standard GRE prep material. I'm pretty sure that no other GRE material is closer to official prep material than Magoosh. I improved my Verbal score by a staggering 13 points (from 150 to 163), by following Magoosh material(including blogs!).

Magoosh provided plenty of practice questions for my nightly study sessions. I used the vocabulary flashcards on my phone and I utilized the practice exams they offered. The instructional videos are very useful as well because they directly tell you what to do for the math problems and explain strategies for the verbal section. Mike McGarry's math videos were the game changer for my studying.

The magoosh verbal was much tougher than the actual GRE. Magoosh over-prepared me to tackle the reading comprehension and argument questions. Moreover, I memorized most of the Magoosh Vocab list. I was able to finish my verbal sections with 10 minutes left to spare for both sections.

Extremely thorough and detailed lesson videos.

The overall toughness level of the practice questions is higher than that of actual GRE, so that fact helped me prepare for the worst.

Special thanks to ever awesome guys Chris Lele and Mike Mcgarry, for their brilliant videos covering the various verbal and math topics.

Thanks a lot to the entire Magoosh team for all the efforts put in to help students prepare for the standardized tests.

Keep it up folks !
