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.

I was already strong on verbal, having recently majored in English literature, but the practice questions allowed me to develop speed and accuracy within the test format. Contrastingly, I was very nervous about the math section since I hadn’t studied any math in 5 years, but the math videos were extremely useful for relearning topics. I appreciated having the ability to change the speed of the videos so that I could fly through familiar topics, while slowing down to really absorb difficult ones. Overall, my scores on both sections were higher than I anticipated.

All the math videos on Magoosh helped me brush up my quant skills and the verbal videos were equally helpful. The Magoosh Vocabulary Builder app was invaluable in my preparation. Following the Magoosh study plan actually gave me some direction on how I should go about preparing for the test.

Love love loved the 6 month study plan article. It kept me on track! I did not have more than an hour to study most days, so that long term pacing was invaluable. I also really appreciated the vocab words. I saw tons of them on the actual test and know for a fact that I would’ve been stumped on certain questions had I not memorized them.

The video lessons were extremely helpful, and I appreciated how similar the practice tests were to my actual test. Magoosh allowed me to study on my own time and at my own pace and was extremely affordable compared to other tutoring services.

Magoosh helped me by boosting my confidence and technique in both the verbal and the quantitative section. At the start I was getting about half of the practice verbal questions right, and by the end it was up to 8/10 - 9/10. I also consistently used the flash cards which helped to expand my vocabulary. These new words did appear on the test, and I would not have known them without the practice. I managed to get a 168 on the quantitative section, and a 164 on the verbal section.

Magoosh provided all the strategies, practice problems, and applications I needed to prepare on my own time throughout the summer! I never felt like there wasn’t some place for me to improve, and thanks to Magoosh I was successful on the app.

I LOVE this service, and it was worth every penny.

The math lessons were incredibly helpful. I majored in studio art for my undergrad, so I hadn’t had any exposure to math in years. The video lessons helped me brush up on my rusty quantitative skills. Additionally, the verbal practice questions along with the vocab builder and flash card apps drastically improved my vocabulary.

I first took the GRE a little over a year ago after having taken an in-person course with another test prep company and scored a 158 Quant and 159 Verbal. I wasn't very happy with my score so I planned to take it again. I studied full-time for a month using Magoosh and the one-month study plan and scored a 164 Quant and 167 Verbal! The lesson videos were incredibly helpful, the app made the entire platform highly portable and the explanation videos after each practice problem really made a difference.

The practice problems were incredibly helpful, as was the feature for customizing practice sessions. Repetition, for me, is key in recognizing patterns easily and Magoosh provides such a large pool of practice questions I was able to familiarize myself with common patterns/formulas seen on the quant section.

Magoosh helped me sharpen my math skills for the test and it taught me a tremendous amount of useful information for the verbal section. Without the help I got from Magoosh I would have scored 10-15 points less overall.

The quant lessons were EXTREMELY helpful, especially for things like finding the number of prime factors, finding the units digit of some large number to some number, and counting questions. The vocab flashcards for common words were also very helpful for verbal. I also got quite a bit of help from the practice questions and my single one-hour math tutoring session. Practice test was also immensely helpful and pretty reflective of my accurate score.

Magoosh helped me skim through the explanations. It helped me avoid silly mistakes in the quant section, and the tips on each question helped me analyse and improve myself. Verbal was my weak section, in the beginning I started off with a 145 score and improved till 157 through videos and practice. Flash cards too were super helpful !!! Thanks a lot Magoosh!!
