331

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.

Quant modules were tougher than the actual GRE. I was able to finish every Quant section 5 minutes in advance. Verbal modules were at par with actual GRE. The tricks were quite handy.

Everything is in the highest quality, including all the questions and their answers (both video and text), the vocabulary flashcard, the blogs, cozy emails and considerate tips, prompt and crystal clear answers to my questions, reference to other study materials and so on.

Honestly, I didn't use any study materials until a day before my exam and barely used Magoosh (I did around 60 questions from your website to see what the exam would be like), but from what I saw the materials on the Magoosh website are an amazing resource. What I used the most in the hours leading up to my exam were the free Magoosh flash cards with the app on my iphone. Those really helped me short-term memorize some new words that came up on the exam. I think that if I had actually studied for the exam, I would have done a lot better than I did, but I did well enough to get into the graduate program I was hoping to attend so that is good enough for me.

Magoosh helped me to avoid long calculations on the quantitative section that made me unable to complete all the questions the first time I took the GRE. The study-plan also really helped me stay on track and I was able to achieve my goal score with just one month of studying.

The practice questions and video explanations were great. Math is where I struggle so breaking down the questions and answer choices really helped me improve. I also loved the vocab app- it was interactive enough that it never felt boring.

Magoosh helped me a lot especially when it came to the verbal section.
Also all the math material was extremely helpful to review my older math concepts and identify my mistakes.
The video explanations and lessons were awesome.
Thanks guys

It helped me review my math skills, learn new vocabulary, figure out the trickery behind the GRE questions and be comfortable with the test. Basically I wouldn't have done nearly as well as I did without Magoosh.

Magoosh does an excellent job presenting specific test question strategies! I took the GRE about seven years ago, completing a full 8 week Kaplan review course prior. I better understood how to approach GRE questions from my short, intense review with Magoosh than I ever did with Kaplan. Furthermore, I wish I had access to Magoosh back when I was first learning certain math concepts. I feel I would have had a much better sense of the concepts underlying many math problems.

Magoosh was a perfect balance of practice and instruction which really helped me identify which questions I needed to work most on. I only used Magoosh for about a month, and not as often as I should have, but if I had studied more with Magoosh, I'm sure my score would have been even higher.

The preparation couldn't have been better without Magoosh. The in-depth explanation videos with transcripts & all my doubts already answered in the FAQ was an awesome experience. I never actually had to contact them through email because the description was clear, concise & simple to understand.

Due to some certain circumstances, I only had 30 days to prepare. I used the Magoosh Daily 30 days study plan for a week but modified it to be slightly more rigorous (~5hrs a day on weekday after work and ~15hrs/day on weekends). Since I've been out of undergrad for 6 years, it's been an extremely long time since I've had to use the math skills the GRE requires. The lessons were super clear and helpful. I learned many little tricks that were indispensable when I took the actual test. The video explanations were fantastic. I loved the vocabulary flashcards app as well. Definitely made most of my time. I was able to use them during my 1 hr commute to and from work each way. The Magoosh score estimate was pretty accurate for my quant, which I did not expect to exceed, but I was pleasantly surprised by the 166 vocab. My goal was at least 160 each section, but I am definitely happy with my score.
