Magoosh helped a lot throughout my preparation. I had a month for preparation and Magoosh helped me set a schedule that I could follow and keep pace with. The question bank was very extensive and solving those presented a picture of the actual test. I wish to thank the Magoosh team for answering all my queries on the go.

Magoosh was absolutely awesome and I really appreciated all of the practice problems and video lessons. I watched every math lesson and did all the vocab flashcards and exceeded my target score by 5 points on my first time ever taking the GRE. The user interface was super easy to use and I loved the dashboard that kept track of your progress and estimated your score (it was correct!) and there weren't any surprises on the actual test. I only used Magoosh to study and feel like I was very well prepared because of it. I also loved how there were video explanations as well as text explanations for every single practice problem. Using Magoosh also made the experience of studying for the GRE not absolutely dreadful, and the way it is structured motivated me to keep doing practice problems in order to see my dashboard score increase. Overall I am so glad that I chose to study with Magoosh and am thankful for all the hard work you guys put in to making the GRE a conquerable feat!

Magoosh played a key role by providing video solutions to every problem at the same time, lectures that provide you how to tackle a particular problem. The plethora of questions that they provide should easily help you to apply and master the techniques that they teach you.

I hadn't looked at typical GRE / standardized test sort of questions in a long time. It got me back in to gear with lots of example questions. Also it helped me a lot on the writing.

My first practice test, I scored a 316 (156 verbal, 160 math). Magoosh increased my score by 16 points!!! Great study schedules, practice problems, practice tests, instructional videos (both for lessons and as explanations to practice problems), and EXCEPTIONAL feedback from the team when I wrote in to ask follow-up questions about the practice problems. Also, I love the vocabulary flashcards! All in all, Magoosh’s platform was an extremely affordable, sure-fire way for me to increase my score.

It really helped with some shortcut math tricks that speeded up my calculations and the overall level of the verbal questions was at par with the actual GRE, so the verbal preparations was a great help.

I had not taken a math course in college and therefore had not thought much about math for five years. When I started studying for the GRE I found that my number sense had suffered terribly. Magoosh helped me cultivate that number sense in addition to providing me with a whole host of services that helped me earn a perfect score on the verbal section. I especially liked the GRE vocabulary flashcard application. I could not be more grateful for Magoosh!

I did not know any math, and I ended up doing so much better on the math section than I ever could have on my own. I watched all of the videos, took notes, and made sure to do every practice question. The videos were so great and the vocabulary flashcards are amazing.

Magoosh helped me with setting up a comprehensive schedule for the limited time I had. I was able to cover all topics within the 1 month period. The video explanations are the biggest plus with Magoosh. My practice score at the beginning of the month was 315 and it improved to 324 towards the end of the month. My actual GRE score of 329 was possible because of the unique teaching methods of Magoosh.

It gave me the confidence that I had done the prep work needed to succeed and challenged my abilities to help me exceed my target math score! It also helped me maintain my verbal abilities to give me a high overall score.

I was already strong on verbal, having recently majored in English literature, but the practice questions allowed me to develop speed and accuracy within the test format. Contrastingly, I was very nervous about the math section since I hadn’t studied any math in 5 years, but the math videos were extremely useful for relearning topics. I appreciated having the ability to change the speed of the videos so that I could fly through familiar topics, while slowing down to really absorb difficult ones. Overall, my scores on both sections were higher than I anticipated.

All the math videos on Magoosh helped me brush up my quant skills and the verbal videos were equally helpful. The Magoosh Vocabulary Builder app was invaluable in my preparation. Following the Magoosh study plan actually gave me some direction on how I should go about preparing for the test.

Love love loved the 6 month study plan article. It kept me on track! I did not have more than an hour to study most days, so that long term pacing was invaluable. I also really appreciated the vocab words. I saw tons of them on the actual test and know for a fact that I would’ve been stumped on certain questions had I not memorized them.
