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.

As a foreigner I find the verbal practices to be really helpful. The vocabulary selected by Magoosh is exactly what to be on the test.

The most important aspect is the practice problems. The videos and help functions are also really good. I am quite strong at math, but Magoosh helps me to find some weakness and guarantees that full mark. I am not a native speaker but my university offers all English courses, and I strongly suggest those who like me using Magoosh, which can be better than following those local agencies interpreting GRE strategies in other languages.

Since I work full time, the access to Magoosh study material via my phone was really helpful to study on my commute and at lunch breaks. I also found the given study plans on the blog very useful.
And your voices are all great. I will miss hearing all of your voices every day!

I was a bit nervous about the gre because I haven't been in school for a while. The online lessons were a great way to recap all the math I forgot. They also have great tips on how to think about problems like the test maker.

For verbal, I mainly focused on memorizing words and I used the magoosh vocab apps. I really liked that they had a web version that synced to the app because I could easily pick up when I was on a computer.

Personally speaking, I think that Magoosh really helps. First of all, the math practice in Magoosh is awesome! I think it is the best quantitative practice. In addition, Magoosh provides me with other's pace so that I know how much time should I spend on a certain question.

My problem has always been math. Magoosh didn't just teach the basic math foundations, it gave me a step by step on how to rationalize with numbers, how to think in the way that the GRE assesses, how to not be afraid when those numbers come up. Magoosh essentially trains you in how to take the test and the strategies that will really bolster your score.

Magoosh helped me understand the type of questions to expect. I learned the traps to take note of especially in the quantitative section. I took alot of practice tests, and that improved my confidence.

I came across Magoosh in a Google search about the GRE a few months ago; it was love at first sight. The Magoosh blog featured refreshingly honest reviews of GRE test prep books and all other kinds of free resources. The amazing-ness of it all convinced me to get Magoosh Premium. Ultimately, Magoosh helped to strengthen my understanding of math concepts that I had either forgotten or never learned, and it also significantly helped me to more effectively break down the reading comprehension questions. (I think at one point during the actual exam, I could hear Chris Lele's voice telling me why some of the RC distractors were wrong.) And finally but perhaps most importantly, it provided a high-quality set of practice quant and verbal questions that ended up being more than enough to practice from. These questions closely resemble the actual questions you'll see on the GRE. I can't thank Magoosh enough for everything GRE-related. The personalized feel of Magoosh didn't hurt, either. Thanks Magoosh!

How? In every way possible. Without Magoosh, I would have been absolutely lost. Everything about Magoosh is absolutely helpful, cogent and simply wonderful. On my first practice test, I saw just how much math I had really forgotten, indeed, I was in the 25th percentile. After 5-weeks of intensive study, my Quantitative percentile was the 78th.

I have already recommended Magoosh to my entire Masters cohort who are getting ready to apply to PhD programs.

Ridiculous number of practice questions and video lessons. Even if I got the same type of question consistently wrong, doing it over and over made me better and by the time the real test came it was easy.

After studying with Magoosh for several months, I felt nervous for the exam but well-prepared. And all my hard work paid off! The questions on the exam were easier than the ones Magoosh gave me, and I scored 5 points higher on my quantitative than I expected. Thank you!

I loved Magoosh. Videos were short and easy to follow. I watched all the verbal videos because I felt comfortable with my math skills, but still, Magoosh helped me in both scores, because doing practice tests helped me a lot to manage my time and be confident the day of the test. Thank you!!!

IT finally feels good to write your own testimonial on magoosh after seeing SO many testimonials .

Well honestly ; after administering the gre I can say that Magoosh did indeed help me . I would be like any other student doing kaplan , princeton review blah blah and then wondering why did i get 295 in my test lolz . Nothing and i mean nothing prepares the gre like MAGOOSH . i can still say that there were approx 5-6 same worded quant questions in my gre . that itself is more than an achievement

There are so many elements of magoosh product that i would laud Right from its peculiar timer telling you its "ON" when you try to solve every question down to its amazing question bank incorporating their gmat questions too into their product and also their simply sublime lesson videos. I invested two months for the gre . Followed the schedule , included lsat gmat in my prep and gave almost 15 tests . 6 manhattan 2 power prep 4 magoosh and 3 private course tests . Out of all these exams Magoosh accurately mimicked the test conditions , albeit make no mistake GRE was the TOUGHEST exam . I definitely did not glide the test but knowing my situation i knew exactly how to think and act again thanks to magoosh.

Another interesting fact : listening to chris's verbal explanations actually worked indirectly to improve my toefl preparation too. A special round of applause to magoosh amazing faculty : chris, mike , rachel, lucas , brent . If you have a doubt however asinine feel free to ask right away. The replies i got were all under 24 hrs . Their reply system is simply the best "period ". Also on a side note Magoosh's gre blog is the best blog for the gre .Having great flashcards and amazing articles ; magoosh vocab Wednesday videos being my personal favorite

so in my epilogue Magoosh and hardwork are two definite recipes for success in the GRE.
