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.

Magoosh helped provide the tools and strategies needed to succeed on the GRE. The quantitative section was very helpful to review formulas. The verbal lessons on video were of a very high quality and contained vital insight.

The math lessons and practice helped somewhat to improve my score on the math sections of the GRE. But I didn't have much use for the verbal practice, I was already very strong on those sections. Overall the product gave me a slight three point increase and a little more confidence for the math portion of the GRE exam.

All I studied was math, and Magoosh had so many math problems, some of which were so similar to those I encountered on the test. I also used the tracking features to understand how well I did over time.

The videos helped tremendously! While working through the math problems, it was always nice to be able to watch a video about it afterwards and see what I did wrong. It really helped me to prepare.

Magoosh was the best study guide for me because I was able to learn a concept from the video lessons by getting repetition with the hundreds of practice questions. Magoosh's strategies are helpful and save time on the real GRE (especially Chris' blog post). Using Magoosh defiantly raised my score and the ability to ask the staff questions really came in helpful for those really trick quantitative questions. I would highly recommend Magoosh to anyone looking for a reasonably priced study aid. Thanks to everyone at Magoosh I receive my goal score!

I had to cram for the math after discovering that other test prep materials were lacking. Magoosh pretty much saved my math score. I'll be retaking it in a month. I'm shooting for a much higher math score and Magoosh will help me every step of the way.

I used your product in two phases. First I went through all of the lecture material (this was before you implemented the quizes). Then I worked my way through the math practice questions twice over. By far the best feature is having access to the videos after I complete a question. It was great for review and confirming I used the correct approach.

I think the price for Magoosh is worth it. The creators did a phenomenal job presenting each section in the verbal and quantitative. I learned a lot and it certainly helped me get a decent score.

I think it helped quite a bit. I mostly used the Math section as I thought that was my weakest area going in. Some of the lessons are a little bit slow, but the practice question explanations are great. Really helped with problems that I missed and helped me internalize concepts.

I think this product helped me tremendously, seeing as I only had a week to study. I know that if I had registered earlier for this product I would have improved tremendously. Maybe I'll take the GRE again and have a little more practice.

I needed exceptional scores well above the 90th percentile to help solidify my application to top graduate schools. Magoosh provided the depth of practice and instruction that I needed to achieve my goal scores. In particular, I noticed many of the same tricks and techniques pointed out by Magoosh instructors were applicable on the actual GRE! The experience that I gained from using the service was invaluable during the exam, because I had the insight to realize the key to solving most problems (even when I didn't know a certain formula or vocabulary word). Having used many similar products by other companies, I can say with confidence that Magoosh is one of the best products on the market and only continues to get better.

Your product gave me a realistic picture of what types of questions I would be facing and the likely difficulty level. Although I have always been better at verbal than math, it did help me improve my initial verbal score significantly.

I procrastinated, horribly. I had been looking over another study book, trying to reteach myself the middle school algebra I could no longer grasp, and it was awful. I googled "one week til GRE, shoot" and the first hit was Magoosh. I took advantage of the free week, for like a day & knew I needed the rest. It was incredible. I sat down for three days going over every single math concept and practicing like a mad woman. It all worked out though, Magoosh is responsible for my > 300. Fantastic product.

I religiously followed the 90 day plan of Magoosh with Verbal focus. It was really helpful in planning my study and I got to give credit to magoosh for my score. I have always been good in Quants, but my verbal was poor. Magoosh's 90 day plan with verbal focus was as good as tailor made for me and the plan didn't completely ignore math. The practice in the plan and the blog helped me get the perfect score in math and my best possible to my potential in Verbal
