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.

This is the second time I have taken the GRE, and I found Magoosh to be incomparably better than any other test prep material I've encountered. The video lessons are incredibly thorough and clear, and I found it very helpful to be able to practice as much as I wanted. The test questions on Magoosh were very true to the style of questions on the actual test. I will recommend Magoosh to anyone who asks.

I mainly worked with the questions not the videos, so they helped me quite a lot. I loved the tutor mode, especially the short videos at the end of each question.

I like that you can have different approaches when using the material: The videos if you prefer instructions or the questions if you like the trial and error method.

Magoosh provided me with lots of practice materials and helpful videos. I really knew what to expect on test day, and I don't think my score would have been as high without Magoosh. I also used the vocab apps, which I actually enjoyed.

I wished I hadn't wasted time and money on all the other materials before I took the test for the first time. Those were good for getting started but did not parallel what I saw on the actual test at all. The questions on Magoosh are carefully designed and helped me see the subtle differences between answer choices, which I think is why my scores improved. Also, the customized practices really helped with my pacing. The detailed answers to my emails, useful study advice on the blog, reliable book reviews and etc... I can't thank the team enough! Great Job!!!

Studying vocabulary with Magoosh app is the most helpful. I can remember about 1000 GRE words in a surprisingly short time.
Moreover, it introduces all sections of GRE well and lets me know how to study each section. Comments on the mind control and study plan also make me familiar with the GRE test.

What makes magoosh a very unique product is the attention they give to subtle elements in all topics-elements the Gre loves to trap you in- along with a set of practice questions that mimic those which appear on test day. In addition to this, magoosh questions come with answer videos to each and every question, which ensures that one does not repeat the mistakes. I can confidently say that, if your target score is on Everest, magoosh trains you to be Hillary.

Most importantly, Magoosh taught me effective strategies to help break down problems, which were especially useful for the Verbal questions that had answers I lacked word-knowledge for. It also spruced up my knowledge relevant to Quant and Verbal.

It helped me understand the structure of the verbal section, and the math videos really helped, both to understand concepts and become faster at doing them. I loved that the practice problems linked to related videos--it made it a really efficient way to practice, and I didn't have to watch all the videos straight through.
