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.

I cant comment on the maths material of Magoosh since I used only their English material. It really helped me improve. Initially, my verbal score in the diagnostic test by powerprep was 140. With Magoosh I went to 153. I would like to add something though. This course will help an individual if he is ready to work hard. If you are ready for that, Magoosh is the way to go.

The product was awesome. The customer service was exceptional. There were other products I tried that offered similar things but this program was the best and comprehensive. This combined with flashcards, and the official GRE book expanded my vocabulary, got me use to taking large numbers of questions, and doing everything with speed.

It really helped in the verbal section. In the math section, it helped in the word problems. However, I have never had geometry and didn't get that section done very well, so I failed all geometry questions.

Loved the video explanations associated with the practice questions.

Magoosh helped me target where I needed to focus my study efforts and if I had had more time to complete all the math practice questions I'm sure I could have raised my math score even more.

I would like to thank Magoosh for creating this platform for me to practise the GRE. As a working adult, time is a constraint and I need to get a realistic simulation of the online test as much as possible.
I have arrived at the score which is just nice. Don't have to worry about taking it again.

Very good introduction to question type, and videos after every solution proved exceedingly useful. So too did the linked "you may find this helpful" videos when doing the math, as it has been years since my last college level algebra course.

The videos were extremely helpful. I watched all of them and did about 95% of the practice questions. I was aiming for at least a 5 point increase so I'm content with my score.

still waiting for the essays to be scored.

The class was incredible! I had previously taken the Princeton Review online class but I felt that yours was better for a number of reasons. I liked that all the material was available from the first day that you register as opposed to waiting for material to become unlocked according to a class schedule. Also the short videos made studying easier and more focused because I could skip sections that I felt I already knew and concentrate on my weaknesses. The 2-7 minute videos also made it possible to squeeze in studying time into short spaces of free time. On the flip side, it also allowed me to stop studying easier if something came up that I had to leave for instead of worry about having to find my place again in an hour long video. Finally, the best part of the product was being able to tailor the practice sessions to the types of questions I wanted. I didn't have to waste my time working on easier problems and was able to practice with only more difficult questions. I was semi crunched for time when I purchased the course, but the easy and flexible layout of your site allowed me to drastically improve my score by focusing only on my weak areas.

Definitely improved my understanding of certain types of math questions. I felt more confident going into the exam than I had the first time. I believe the hours I put in on your site had a positive effect, as my math score did improve.

I cannot say enough good things about Magoosh. The first time I took the test, I studied with Kaplan books, their Quiz Bank, and the ETS guide. When I wanted to improve my score I noticed this was not happening with those resources so I started searching online. Even though Magoosh looked like a new company the reviews I read were amazing and the value for the money was too good not to give it a try. I was astounded with everything you guys offer. The Math videos helped me look at the same topics I had been studying but in a more focused and strategic way, and also provided more information on subjects and formulas not even mentioned in other resources. The Practice Test I took two days before the test gave me the exact same total score I got the exam the second time around. I may be taking the test again; if I do I will definitely keep practicing with Magoosh.

On the actual day, because I had already went through ALL the questions available on Magoosh, and because the concepts actually tested were exactly what Magoosh prepared me for, it became just like another practice test; the actual GRE, apart from the security checks, was quite routine and stress-free.

Its amazing.It helped me a lot I was very weak in maths ,my concepts were also not clear but Magoosh helped me a lot.To customize for practicing questions by choosing different options such as for the topic and level of difficulty was very helpful so that we can actually come to know how much time is spent on each sum and the readily available answers with video explanation is a very good option.I just needed those precious 6-7 marks for my admission for which I was toiling hard to achieve but was not successful before.But Magoosh helped me to get it so I will be always thankful to Magoosh team.Great work ,great product and thanks a lot for your support.
