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.

The detailed analysis of questions in the verbal section helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses; the video lessons and prompt mail replies helped me work on my weaknesses. This helped in identifying and practicing question types that were difficult for me. Both part and full time practice tests helped to assess my performance in real test conditions.

Magoosh gave me the final push to getting that quantitative score that I really felt I could achieve with a little more practice. The material was excellent and the lectures were refreshing; it helped me pick up on tricks that I never thought about despite having been studying math all my life. They respond promptly, answering your questions succinctly. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a great resource to prepare for the GRE.

Hi team.
Magoosh is definitely the best option for GRE prep. I dont say this lightly or without experiencing several different types of coaching. I had forgotten a couple of the important math concepts, so the math videos were a great refresher.
Since the videos are short and easy to understand, I could go through concepts really quickly and effectively. The verbal vocab app is simply the easiest way to learn a lot of vocab, that does appear on the test, quickly. Further, the explanation videos are always crystal clear and make the concepts really stick.
Lastly, I thought the team did a great job answering my doubts promptly and comprehensively. I didnt really need private tutoring since the team did such a good job clearing my doubts.
I didn't study for very long ( a month at max, really), but Magoosh let me maximize the time I spent during that month studying.

Magoosh helped me to understand the key points for performing the best. Even being a senior student in the math department, I had learned several solving techniques, so I have saved a lot of time during the test. Thanks to the huge pool of tasks I trained a lot and the results overwhelmed me in positive way, especially verbal score.

Magoosh's comprehensive coverage of the topics in the video format, supplemented by their reading material, was very helpful. The portability and cost were unbeatable, as well. I also appreciate that they helped direct me to outside sources for extra practice. Plus, they were very fast and thorough in answering my questions, even during the holidays!

Magoosh is really great! My first score on the GRE wasn't bad (320), but I was looking for more. Then I choose Magoosh to prepare for this second test. I had only 21 days to prepare, and I the video lessons and video explanations for questions were integral to my success: I was able to improve my overall score by 8 points! During my short preparation for the second test, I solved more than 800 questions and took Magoosh test practices. It was really helpful, and I certainly recommend Magoosh for people who need high GRE scores.

Kudos to Magoosh team for providing quality service at an affordable rate. You get value for your money and I am 100% happy with the results. The video lessons are awesome. Great organization of the topics and super presentation. The 'tips' and 'tricks' are time savers. Believe me guys - those really help. The practice questions are of almost simliar difficulty to what you are likely to encounter in actual test.

Love the way Chris takes us through the verbal section. I am not a native English speaker, and I found his way of teaching really helpful to quickly get familiarized with the verbal concepts. Mike also has done a great job - I always felt that is how Math should be taught. He was always focusing on getting your basics right rather than making you byheart a bunch of formulas for the test. 5 STARS.

'Magooshing' really helps !!

I haven't taken a math class in 10 years so I desperately needed a refresher on geometry, algebra, counting techniques, and probability. The Magoosh video lessons helped me remember the high school math I'd forgotten and taught me what tricks to look out for on the test. In my experience, learning how to take the test was just as important as learning test content. The large selection of practice questions on Magoosh gave me something new to learn every day, and the video explanations for each question ensured that I understood my mistakes when I got a question wrong.

Magoosh helped me in many ways! For example, I was able to re-familiarize myself with many of the math concepts I had forgotten. Similarly, I feel Magoosh helped me hyper-prepare for the types of quantitative questions on the actual test. That is, I felt prepared for just about any question thrown my way. I also found the small tips and tricks very helpful for time-management purposes.
Regarding the verbal help, I would say knowing and practicing the words in the Magoosh vocabulary app is a must. Early on in my studying, I would practice words almost every day. Many of the words in the app were also on the actual exam.
In regards to analytical writing, I think Chris did a fantastic job of outlining both sections. I liked how he used an actual prompt and provided examples of fallacies - very helpful come test day.
Finally, I REALLY appreciate all the help from the Magoosh tutors! Thank you all. They did a great job of answering just about all of my questions in an easy to understand way. Moreover, they could not be more friendly! I applaud you all. The return on investment is huge. I honestly cannot believe how much you guys are willing to help given the low cost of a premium membership. Applause all around, guys! Thank you.

It was amazing! I wish I had more time to study for verbal. I had several problem areas in math which absolutely disappeared with the help of Magoosh! Those include consecutive numbers and combinatorics. As for verbal, I'm sure I would score much less without having used Magoosh as I am not a native speaker.

Magoosh vocabulary builder app, video lessons, and practice questions played a very important role for me during my GRE preparation. The difficulty and variety of questions given are on par with the actual GRE exam. The explanation videos and solving techniques provided helped me to correct my mistakes and improve my overall score.
My favourite feature in the Magoosh product was the ability to solve questions on specific topics and of varied difficulty tailored to my needs.
Magoosh turned the usually arduous process of training for GRE into a breeze for me and helped me achieve a good score!

The math videos were very helpful and the email feedback for specific questions was helpful and timely. The AWA writing videos really helped me to break down the time management strategy I needed to improve my essay. I scored in the 18th percentile the first time and feel confident I scored significantly better this time because I was more prepared.

Magoosh questions, videos are really helpful.Magoosh verbal is above par. Magoosh Quant is also on par with GRE. But the significant feature of Magoosh is its help when you asks some question.

Magoosh has been absolutely pivotal in my study for the GRE. I loved the ease of use and especially the apps. The ability to do test problems on the go or watch videos on demand was really helpful, and the question explanations improved my score tremendously. I was also pleasantly surprised when I received feedback for comments on a few of the practice questions!

The questions provided were right on the mark. They gave the simulation of actual GRE exam. The problem solving approach discussed by Chris lele are extremely effective. And the vocab flash card app is a perfect way to increase the efficacy of recollecting words on the test day.

Also I would like to appreciate the simple user interface. Its brilliant. So easy and clutter free. Its soothing to see the green, black interface and really reduces the stress level. Also the option to increase the speed of videos is a great way to go over the topics one already know.

Great job guys. Kudos

Magoosh made the world of difference. The thought of having to relearn basic math after a having taken several years off from school was nothing short of awful. Magoosh made the process fun, game-ifying the experience and challenging me to meet my goals. Magoosh covered not only the content of the test, but also the structures and tricks of the test itself. I knew that I had the capacity to score well, but sticking to a Magoosh study plan is what actually made that happen. I am so happy to say good riddance to all of my study materials and close the door on the GRE forever, but I will always remain thankful to Magoosh and the fabulous team that helped me succeed!

As a working professional with very little time to prep for the exam, Magoosh was the perfect platform. The videos were short and crisp, the practice question setup very effective and motivating and the pre-made plans took all the thought out of scheduling my prep. After watching all the videos and attempting all the practice questions once, I was able to re-do all my incorrect questions till i got them right. I think this is what helped me jump my score in Quant.
