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.

It provided some great practice material which I found both challenging and useful. The practice material was also very close to what I actually encountered on the test. Also, the videos, particularly the ones concerning the essays, were really helpful in providing a structured approach to the prompts/questions.

Magoosh.com was fantastic! I wish I found it years ago. Math is my weakness so I used the magoosh practice questions and video lessons extensively. My score increased from 670 to 770 (161 on the new scale). I love magoosh and have recommended it to my friends.

Your videos for the verbal and essay were really excellent. The teachers voice was very comforting. The math videos didn't help because I just didn't remember most of those problems. The voice for the math video sounded like there was a malfunction. Example: the male voice would say "frasions" instead of "fractions".

Let me just say that you guys have built an awesome product with even more awesome content and staff. I've tinkered with a bunch of online programs and nothing comes close to the user experience. Most of them were cumbersome - and there's not other way of saying this - "Bleh". Your training videos were spot on . Your RC questions were particularly helpful as I learnt more from watching the explanatory videos than from solving the questions . It gave me a structured method to go about solving those problems. All the math questions were of comparable and probably greater quality to the actual test questions.

It was great. The practice questions were very similar to the qns on the actual exam. I found it very useful. Above all, the very quick response for every query is the best highlight for Magoosh. Its just an amazing website for the GRE. I would definitely recommend Magoosh to my juniors. :) :) Thanks a lot :)

I really like how Magoosh support responded to my questions so fast (Thank you Margarette!) Also, the person who gave the tutorials for the math section did an excellent job on the lessons. I actually scored a lot lower for the math section on the Magoosh problems than I did on my actual exam (151-156 on Magoosh vs. 160 on the actual exam). I highly recommend Magoosh to any person who wants to do well on the GRE. The 30 day blog really gave me direction on how to better hone my math and verbal skills.

Also, I wanted to point out that I had one of my essay topics was very similar to the one given on the Magoosh lessons. I suggest following that lesson very closely, since it helps you organize your thoughts and expedite your thinking process.

It helped me a lot. It was short time to prepare and write the test. The practice test score exactly predicted.

I am in my 40's, a long way from the last math class I took! I basically had to relearn all my math in about 60 days. It was the video explanations of math practice questions that most helped me. It can be challenging to just look at a printed solution and follow along. Although my math score could certainly use improvement, I was literally starting from zero, so I came a long way. The thing that most impressed me about Magoosh was when I submitted a question, the responses were not only prompt, but thoughtful and personal, not the automated responses to which we've all unfortunately become inured. I'm not dying to take the GRE again, but if I did, I would certainly invest in any future Magoosh products.

The Magoosh team did an outstanding job publishing relevant and helpful test prep material. It was actually way more material than I could cover in the 6 week time frame that I gave myself. I would recommend Magoosh over any of the other test prep companies. The myriad of lessons, wide range of questions, and integrated personal feedback were essential to my (somewhat reasonable) success. My only regret is that I wish I had found Magoosh sooner. If/when I end up retaking the exam in the future, this will be my first and only stop. Thank you.

I spent many hours doing the quizzes and practice questions on Magoosh. When I took the actual exam, I was relaxed and perfectly comfortable with the structure and time limits. That was the biggest help. My math score improved a good deal over my practice scores, so Magoosh helped there as well. Thanks!!

Your way of teaching is quite good. I hopped from 296 to 308 with the increase of 12 marks. For me its a great achievement as I was struggling very hard with verbal section especially RC's before coming to your product. But after buying magoosh product, i really felt confident and was improving day by day. I had good command over maths from my school times. So i was confident on that, but verbal was really haunting me. I gained much confidence in verbal through the help of ur video lessons and practice questions.

Thanka a tonn magoosh for guding in a well defined way.

The aspect of Magoosh that I found most helpful were the tutorial videos. Being a very visual learner, making a connection from watching someone work through a Math or Verbal solution was extremely helpful.

Absolutely. An indispensable service at a reasonable price. I learned exactly what I need to using my new favorite way to learn: VIDEO. The overviews, the 'day-of' tips, the tutorials, the practice sessions--every part rang true and help make my test day the best it could be.

The verbal practice helped me prepare for what the questions would actually be like. The video tutorials gave me hints and made the process less intimidating. I used the 30 day study guide from your blog and mostly stuck to it. I was mostly concentrating on my verbal score and it showed in the result.

The Magoosh product is very helpful. The video presentation after each problem has made the solution to the problems crystal clear. It is like a real person tutoring you, at your own convenience. Compared to other programs with out out video presentation, the Magoosh program is superior.

Magoosh helped me in several ways. The system taught me how to look at the questions, how to find the answer that was most correct, and reviewed my math skills. Magoosh is by far the best test prep for your money on the internet, and it is also fun to say. Magoosh!
