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.

Video lessons were incredibly well done. I like the video and text explanations for the practice questions. I used the math and analytical writing the most.

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.

Great review. I completed undergrad over 8 years ago and needed refresher course, especially in math. Magoosh helped me review impt math concepts needed for GRE.

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.

During the test, I specifically remember saying "THANK YOU MAGOOSH" in my head when I encountered a problem that I knew how to solve because of the video tutorials. It gave me the confidence and practice that I needed to perform well on test day (especially after having been out of school for 2 years and having spent the past year and a half in a different country speaking a different language...)

I had tried all the other book product on the market. These books taught tricks and tips and the basics that were very easy to understand. Magoosh gave me what they didn't have, problems to work with explained answers. I didn't heavy a good high school education so I have been plagued by basic problems even though I'm working in an advanced scientific field. Magoosh helped me fill the voids I missed early on.

I loved this program. I already have a graduate degree, but had to retake the GRE for another grad program, because my scores were more than five years old. I knew I wouldn't do as well this time around due to my work schedule, but I didn't want to fail and risk not getting into the MPH program. I used your apps while commuting for a few weeks in order to refresh my skill set. If I had your software the first time I took the GRE (back when I could actually study!) I think I could have achieved a perfect score.

The videos were the most helpful. The instructional videos for math were a big help since I have been out of school for a few years. The best were the videos in the practice session because you were able to get a full explanation of how to complete the problem.

I only had about three weeks to use Magoosh between GRE attempts. I watched all of the lesson videos but did not get to all the practice questions; however, I still saw an 11pt improvement! I wish that I had've used Magoosh to prepare the first time around instead of the other books (Kaplan and Princeton Review). Had I had more time, I can only imagine how high of a score I could have received. With the previous books, I was doing well on their practice questions but was left unprepared for the actual GRE. After using Magoosh I was much better prepared for the GRE - I think the questions on Magoosh were harder than the GRE's!

Magoosh was key in my improvement (I only bought the math package). Just going through the problems and the thorough explanations was very helpful, along with the lessons in areas I needed to improve. It was very interactive compared to practice booklets and the layout was similar to the real GRE.

Helped me tremendously with math, would not have been able to remember the formulas and equations at all. It also helped with the essay writing and helping me remember how to formulate arguments.
I also loved all the practice problems and that you all showed us how to get the correct answer to each one.
