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.

Magoosh is outstanding!!!. I was really trying hard to improve my verbal score and found a great tutor, Chris Lele, in helping me to crack it. Chris has super talent of explaining verbal reasoning in lucid manner. When I started preparing, I set a goal of around 150-154 (realistic one!!!). I scored 158 which is beyond my initial expectations. Magoosh's materials helped me greatly in achieving this. I got lower score on Quant, I should blame only myself for wasting my time in solving toughest question and then running out of time!.

Chris's verbal video lessons are must for GRE aspirants. As Magoosh suggest, I would also recommend taking Manhatten GRE's 6 practice tests as they are the closest to actual GRE test.

I must say that Magoosh's email response for my questions is quick and resourceful. Thank you for all the help and I really admire your passion in teaching.

It gave me immense practice. Though I didn't have time to go through all the videos, whichever I went through were extremely helpful. Verbal practice questions helped me a lot.

Extremely well-done videos and coverage of all possible question types that are actually on the exam. I've been out of undergraduate studies for 4 years, and needed this to succeed on the GRE.

Magoosh GRE's sophistication and depth really make it stand out from a lot of other GRE prep products. The sheer volume of practice questions, explanatory videos for each question, and lessons on pretty much every major topic covered by the GRE mean a much higher chance of maximizing one's score when compared to other test prep companies.

Through studious use of the math lessons and practice problems I managed to score a 151. Though not a great score by most standards, it's great for someone who has not taken a math class in eight years. Plus, in that last class I took I scored a very low grade.

I actually learned through this program that I've come to a point in my life where I enjoy math. It that way, it was very eye opening and helpful.

The simple user interface is apt and interactive. It helps you to start off immediately with the questions, and look into the explanations or the related videos if necessary. The analysis that comes is the best part as the various filters help you to know your strengths and weakness easily and track your progress easily.

The ability to ask questions via email was great. The study schedules and the categorization of the videos helped me get organized and stay focused. I felt like the Magoosh team kept a positive and understanding attitude when it came to answering questions and video tutorials, which helped me keep a good attitude!

Its very hard for me to study just reading out of a book. One of the reasons I purchased your program was because of the video lessons. They were perfect. Short and very detailed which helped to keep my attention. I also loved the practice problems it was almost exactly like the actual GRE setup. It helped me get used to the flow of answering the questions and using the on screen calculator. I liked the practice vs the quiz questions. I was so prepared for the flow of the the test when I arrived which really helped me out. It took away some of the anxiety of taking the test. I really loved your program.

As an international student and never having heard of the GRE it was an unbelievable challenge. Having not been required to take any math or english courses as a marine science student it seemed quite unfair to be asked to take such a test that has no relevance to my line of specialization. I had already proven myself at undergraduate level but taking the GRE was a real challenge for me as math and english are not my strong suits so it was very worrying as it has a huge effect on whether I would gain entry to graduate school. Having found Magoosh it gave me a set plan that I could follow and the videos were great, and it definitely made the difference in my studying. Thanks Magoosh!!! :)

The Math section really helped me out on the GRE. The tips and tricks in different sections helped in analyzing questions carefully and approaching them in an efficient manner. Both the verbal and math sections provided a lot of practice and boosted my confidence going into the GRE.

The support that I got from the Magoosh team were prompt and they always made sure to answer my questions thoroughly.

It helped me to regain my confidence. It has a great variety of practice question that helped me with tricks and shortcuts to solve the problems. Moreover it helped me identify my silly mistakes. Although I couldn't improve in my verbal score, Magoosh did helped with the verbal section as well. Videos and quick note feature are remarkable. The Magoosh team is quite responsive and helpful especially Rachel.
Overall Magoosh is best!!!

Magoosh was amazing! My score does not make any justice to what you can achieve using this product. If you're looking for a perfect score, this is the best product for that. At least for the quantitative section (I didn't prepare with magoosh or anything the verbal section).

I've overviewed Princeton (too easy, I do not recommend it), Barrons and Kaplan and by far Magoosh is the most extensive prep material: reviews that consists of unbelievably detailed videos and practice that resembled the actual test in an excellent way. Moreover, the staff is always willing to help you and they answered all of my e-mails, regardless it was a weekend, holiday, or whatever. Really amazing!!! (But actually, everything is extremely clear and from my point of view you do not actually need to contact them).

In addition, for example I've heard that Kaplan doesn't let you do their exams more than one time, and their practice sets are not as difficult as the exams. It is important to have the possibility to do exercises more than one time because if something happens to you and you need to re-take (as in my case), and in this Magoosh also definitively has an advantage over other products.

I did not study as hard as I should (I work plus I am studying at a university), but I do believe that if you follow the steps this guys are suggesting (videos and all their practice) you can definitively achieve a perfect score. You will be satisfied with the product no matter what. That is how good this product is. Good luck to everybody!

The first time I took the GRE, I was way too slow on the math sections. I used Magoosh in the month between tests and was able to get a much better score.

Magoosh was especially helpful with the Quant. Doing hundreds of challenging problems with a timer was great practice. The lessons and video solutions reinforced the topics.

the math section was fantastic - the videos were really helpful - also the explanations for the problems in the official gre revised test booklet were a god sent - i have to say i probably did not study as much as I should have but this product really helped prepare me - i took these within a month of eachother (so that is an 11 point difference in one month) i should have studied

Your product improved my math score significantly. Although your math questions were a little harder than those found on the exam, I felt this was for the best - sort of like high altitude training. Prior to making use of your study materials, based on personal assessments, I was looking at a 50th percentile quantitative reasoning score. After working with your materials for several months, I scored in the 83rd percentile. Thank you.

I had a great experience! I hadn't taken a math class in nearly a decade and just needed some help refreshing my memory. I only had a couple weeks to improve my score. The ability to see my weakest areas really helped me to study effectively. I was able to improve my math score by 30 percentile points in a little over a month, just by using the program everyday for a couple weeks! Thanks so much!

I can not describe with words how this product was helpful during my Gre studies. I am foreign, even English is not my first foreign language. Within two months studying with Magoosh, I improve my verbal score by 9 points and math by 5 points without Magoosh It was just a dream:). Your overall score was even more accurate than PowerPrep!!! I recommend Magoosh to everyone, since there is no better one in the market:)
