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 was pretty much the only prep material I needed to get a near perfect score on the GRE. What I liked most about Magoosh prep was the freedom to prepare at my own pace. The Vocab Builder and Flashcard apps, together with the illuminating blogs made Magoosh stand out from other prep material.

Christ is so helpful! My verbal improved so much a week after I started Magoosh. I love you guys!!
I also like the study plan! The practice question from Magoosh are helpful, but there are not enough of them. So I turned to LSAT reading comprehension. That helped me a lot.

I really like the "estimated score" feature. It helps me keep motivated -- it becomes fun to keep doing exercises and actually see progress reflected on the increasing score. Besides, the videos are also helpful.

The hundreds of practice questions and informative videos were extremely helpful. However, I found the most helpful feature of Magoosh to be the practice tests that were set up just like the actual GRE. This made me feel at ease when entering the testing center on my test day.

It made me more confident in answering questions and let me access videos of topics I found tricky whenever I wanted to watch them. When I sat down to answer questions on the actual exam, it all seemed so much easier which made me less nervous.

Magoosh was the most helpful in outlining the types of questions that the GRE actually asks as well as giving great feedback and explanations as to why answers were correct (and even more importantly: why other answers weren't correct).

I like that Magoosh is hands on and keeps a track of all its subscribed test takers.The periodic mails from the team are a great boost. Found the vocabulary cards and the English video lessons very helpful. Thank the entire team !

I studied for my first GRE exam using resources from a number of the big-box test prep companies and was disappointed with the result. The second time around, Magoosh allowed me to focus on the harder questions and concepts, which is exactly what I needed to break 90th percentile in math (though not as high as I would have liked, still a big win for me) and bring my verbal up even further with some very targeted vocab and reading comprehension prep. Doing all the practice online also made me feel much more comfortable confronting the actual computer-based test.

It made me aware of my shortcomings and how to work on them. Magoosh also resolved my doubts timely by responding within a day or two.

loved the videos and all of the hard and very hard practice problems available. I was using a Kaplan book and realized the problems were way too easy. So glad that I found magoosh.

I only had a month to prepare the GRE, and I had to work fulltime. Magoosh was the only preparation material I used, and it was wonderful!

Incredibly helpful and on-the-spot lesson videos. Great user interface and features with the question bank (ability to diagnose areas of improvement, average question type time, level of difficulty). The entire service is very data driven, which is great - the more data on past performance, the better one is informed to excel on the actual test.

The video lessons were excellent for general review, especially for the math. And I loved the abundance of practice problems- I think that doing all of the problems multiple times is what helped me the most. Customer service and responsiveness were also excellent! I liked the casual, friendly tone to all of the emails.

The magoosh prep material was monumental in my success. No other book I tried had questions anywhere near as good as magoosh.

Magoosh provided me with the necessary tools to study for the GRE. I was particularly nervous about re-familiarizing myself with the material for the GRE Math portion, but Magoosh made it easy for me to quickly pick up the skills needed to feel more comfortable. I think I actually learned more with Magoosh's videos than I did in middle & high school! For the verbal section, Magoosh provided concrete approaches to what can be more nebulous questions and overall section.

Finally, I found Magoosh's study schedules immensely helpful as a way for myself to stay on track and feel comfortable that my preparation would kick in during the actual test.

Magoosh was the best help I could have got ever. The best things of Magoosh apart from the expansive question bank was their one to one help service. They would have an answer to every single one of my doubts and that too within 24hrs or to the max 72hrs. I am grateful to Magoosh for helping me out all along.

I used Magoosh only for my quant score and it was super helpful! The problems were harder than what was on the actual gre and the video lessons were really helpful in pointing out more efficient ways of doing problems. Without magoosh, I wouldn't have known what to study for. The study plans provided were also really helpful. Even though I only had a month to prepare, I used the 90 day advanced study plan and it improved my studying habits. Also- the customer service was amazing. Every time I had a question about what I'm studying, I can email and receive a detailed response within a day.
