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.

Honestly, I didn't get to use it enough to say. The tutorials were extremely useful and I felt better going in... but as you can see not much changed and my math score, the one I was worried about, went DOWN!

Magoosh provided a wealth of well-structured and truly representative quant problems. Doing those several times, along with taking several practice tests in Magoosh, really helped me get comfortable doing extremely difficult quant problems in under a minute and a half. Also, the videos helped clarify any areas where my understanding was somewhat lacking.

Hello!

I used Magoosh only for about a week and mostly on the Verbal section. Since English is not my first language I was really stressed about not understanding difficult passages or certain terms. I took the GRE today just to get a feeling of the test, knowing that I was not prepared. I almost jumped out of my chair when I saw an almost 160 on my Verbal section. I loved your videos and practice test on the verbal part. As for the math, I haven't really had time to study. I took a week off from work and kind of perused through the material. Many of the mathematical concepts seemed too complicated for me to grasp (at least now, 20 years from my last math lesson that I can remember). Also, I had a hard time maintaining focus on the 9 minutes long videos. They seemed too dense for me. I will go back to your site and start small when I'll begin my preparation. I don't know if 4-5 weeks is enough time for someone who starts from scratch to get a decent score on the Quantitative part of the GRE...Maybe you guys would have some suggestions on how to better prepare... It is such a blessing that you exist...I would have perhaps given up on the idea of applying for a PhD if it weren't for the great recommendations of your users.

I cant comment on the maths material of Magoosh since I used only their English material. It really helped me improve. Initially, my verbal score in the diagnostic test by powerprep was 140. With Magoosh I went to 153. I would like to add something though. This course will help an individual if he is ready to work hard. If you are ready for that, Magoosh is the way to go.

The product was awesome. The customer service was exceptional. There were other products I tried that offered similar things but this program was the best and comprehensive. This combined with flashcards, and the official GRE book expanded my vocabulary, got me use to taking large numbers of questions, and doing everything with speed.

It really helped in the verbal section. In the math section, it helped in the word problems. However, I have never had geometry and didn't get that section done very well, so I failed all geometry questions.

Loved the video explanations associated with the practice questions.

Magoosh helped me target where I needed to focus my study efforts and if I had had more time to complete all the math practice questions I'm sure I could have raised my math score even more.

I would like to thank Magoosh for creating this platform for me to practise the GRE. As a working adult, time is a constraint and I need to get a realistic simulation of the online test as much as possible.
I have arrived at the score which is just nice. Don't have to worry about taking it again.

Very good introduction to question type, and videos after every solution proved exceedingly useful. So too did the linked "you may find this helpful" videos when doing the math, as it has been years since my last college level algebra course.

The videos were extremely helpful. I watched all of them and did about 95% of the practice questions. I was aiming for at least a 5 point increase so I'm content with my score.

still waiting for the essays to be scored.

The class was incredible! I had previously taken the Princeton Review online class but I felt that yours was better for a number of reasons. I liked that all the material was available from the first day that you register as opposed to waiting for material to become unlocked according to a class schedule. Also the short videos made studying easier and more focused because I could skip sections that I felt I already knew and concentrate on my weaknesses. The 2-7 minute videos also made it possible to squeeze in studying time into short spaces of free time. On the flip side, it also allowed me to stop studying easier if something came up that I had to leave for instead of worry about having to find my place again in an hour long video. Finally, the best part of the product was being able to tailor the practice sessions to the types of questions I wanted. I didn't have to waste my time working on easier problems and was able to practice with only more difficult questions. I was semi crunched for time when I purchased the course, but the easy and flexible layout of your site allowed me to drastically improve my score by focusing only on my weak areas.
