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.

I followed the 4 week study schedule to a T and it was so helpful! I also really liked the estimated score tool for the practice questions.

The huge number of practice problems was essential to my success on GRE! I also loved the interface. It mimicked the real GRE interface leaving few surprises.

It allowed me to answer questions faster and with bigger precision. It also gave me certain confidence and familiarity with the questions.

It provided me with several useful resources and with a study plan that helped me in organizing my weeks before the exam in the best way, even though I adapted it to my needs. I found some of the material particularly useful; the vocabulary flashcards, for example, gave a major contribution to enhancing my performance in the verbal section and were of vital importance to a person like me who is not a native-speaker. A positive feature of the study plan is that it suggests also books and websites different from Magoosh, thus inviting students to study on different material, enabling them to be readier to face the unexpected during the exam.

Magoosh's problems were definitely more difficult than the GRE's test problems. For the previous test, I used other materials that were same level if not easier than the GRE and therefore I was not improving. I just needed more difficult problems because I felt like I was fairly competent with the previous material I was studying for the first test; this was not the case as shown by my first GRE score. Furthermore, I like how Magoosh teaches you strategies that will help you see differently.

The best part about Magoosh is the many many (well written!) practice problems, as well as a detailed explanation for each question. I especially liked the math questions which I felt were slight more difficult than the actual test questions. It also let me become accustomed to all the tricks that the GRE will try and throw. All the mobile phone apps were also very helpful too. Overall, a BIG THANK YOU for this service!

Targeted practice questions. The fact that I can identify particular subjects and question types that merit more practice is a tremendous advantage over other GRE test prep materials.

It has been I while since I have taken any math courses, and I was unsure about how to think through many of the problems. The math lesson videos were extremely helpfully in getting me the score I needed for grad school.

The videos were fantastic and perfect for my short attention span and the limited spurts of time I had during the day to study. The practice questions were excellent and I think slightly more difficult than the actual GRE, which really helped me strengthen my skills. I raised my math score significantly from what I was getting on practice tests when I first started. Compared to GRE books I had purchased this was far and away much more helpful, and the cost cannot be beat.

The math section was EXCELLENT. I hadn't seen most of the math on the GRE since high my sophomore year of high school (7 years ago). The math videos provided an incredibly thorough refresher while also teaching me some awesome tricks that have genuinely rekindled my love of problem solving. I may keep finish the math videos even though I don't plan on retaking the test!
