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.

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:)

The lesson videos were extremely helpful and allowed me to revisit some math that I had not solved since 10th grade in high school. The practice questions and video explanations in both math and verbal were always extremely helpful and allowed me to work on my weaknesses. Furthermore, the ebooks such as the Math Formulas and the Vocabulary Guide were helpful as well.

I hadn't timed myself before using Magoosh so keeping track of time, knowing the average speed of others was really helpful. Also the interface that resembled the actual test was helpful too. Being able to redo "incorrect", "flagged", and the ones that took longer time was a really good practice and was able to gain confidence.

Magoosh really helped me get serious about my preparation. The explanation videos are great and break down even complicated things with ease. While the verbal part is great too, the math section is extremely helpful, especially if you're like me and you had to re-learn math almost from the ground up.

Getting constant, measurable feedback and knowing that I could get an explanation for math problems actually made it fun to do math. And i don't normally enjoy math. I wanted to beat my previous score each time i practiced. I liked being able to time myself and pick and choose the types of problems that i wanted to do. The customizable practice format was essential since I am a full time parent to two kids which essentially leaves sporadic pockets during the day and very late at night to study. Magoosh helped me to go into my first standardized test in a long time with a positive attitude.

Magoosh saved Ma'butt!
It provided a really potent refresher for all the math components and gave some very useful strategies for preparing for verbal. I actually found the practice tests much harder than the actual GRE exam (which is a good thing).
Having only 2 weeks to prepare this was likely the best source I could have found to cram and be as prepared as possible for the exam.

I only wish I found you guys before. I am working full time and I had just 1 month to give the exam. I have a 8 mark jump just because of you. I left all other material and followed all the lessons and practice at your website. I am so thankful to find you when it mattered the most.

The video explanations were helpful, particularly for math. I had to refresh my math knowledge, so having video explanations and solutions that were clear was crucial.

The biggest help was the format of the product, which was identical to the actual test. Having to do a test on a computer is so much different from a paper-based test, so I felt prepared. Practice with timing was also crucial.

The verbal practice questions and reading passages were nearly identical to what was tested.

Your blog was also an invaluable resource. It is amazing! I really appreciate the extra effort you put into helping people with the test. The small tips, themed vocab practice etc. really helped me feel more prepared. While studying for the GRE, I felt I needed to immerse myself in the material. Having your blog to browse through was great.
