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.

Magoosh was amazing!! The quant portion of the GRE was incredibly daunting to me, and I was demoralized before I found Magoosh. The lessons were smart and incredibly helpful - I watched almost all of them, some of them multiple times! And I owe my success in the verbal portion to the Magoosh vocabulary flashcard app.

My quant diagnostic score before enrolling into Magoosh was 147. I saw an improvement of 13 points in quant alone on my actual GRE with just one month of Magoosh classes.

The video explanation for each verbal question was particularly helpful which made me realize that I have to scan through each and every word of the sentence to understand the context. Also, going through the practice questions enabled me to have a clear idea about the time management during the test.

The video lectures are brilliant, and the question bank exhaustive. AWA lectures were extremely helpful too. I only wish I had learnt about Magoosh earlier.

The vocab helped me a lot! Also, I think I'm okay with quanti stuff but I'm a slow solver, and it becomes quite the problem in GRE! Magoosh gave me techniques so that I can do it a little faster!

I greatly benefited from the math video explanations (especially probability!) and little shortcuts tutorials as I never learned math with tricks. Magoosh helped speed up my problem solving by constantly timing myself against the other users and provide in depth or quick explanations when I needed them. I solved over half the verbal and half the math problems available and my only regret is that I did not start using the site sooner in my prep rather than wait until the last 2 months before the GRE. Highly recommend this prep program!

I was moved by the way even the recorded videos interacted with me. Chriss lectures were fun to watch and made way to make the most prosaic of the prep part to be easy going for me. The quality of Magoosh practice questions, especially the quant part matched with my real GRE to a great extent. All in all, I want to thank Magoosh for their excellent prep material and of course the online support you they gave me be it regarding prep or general stress management.

Magoosh was a breather in adding to the extent of Mathematics and helping in building shortcuts as well as concepts in the topics I was lacking. For instance, I was unsure of Probability and Statistics, Magoosh was really good at that, and I could also be re-directed to GMAT portions to gain a stronger hold on the portions I was lacking in.

When I decided to buy the Magoosh access I had a month till my GRE and I hadn't started preparing at all. Honestly it was more of a panicked reaction than a rational decision. But I am glad I did. Having not studied maths in years, it was really helpful to have explanation videos for all the problems, not to mention the fact that the lesson videos started from the basics to help people like me. And the ability to make practice tests from all the unseen problems was perfect way to get used to the format of the GRE, especially the extra section, since most practice tests don't tend to have that. The magoosh questions in both verbal and math were also more difficult than the ones I faced in the actual exam, making them good practice material.

Practicing Quant and Verbal questions on Magoosh helped me get acquainted with the types of questions I'd face in the actual exam. I believe Magoosh undoubtedly has one of the best Practice tests ever. Additionally, I found the Magoosh to be very student friendly and would like to thank the support team for helping me out on numerous occasions.

Magoosh was very helpful for me. The quality of questions in quants practice were really good and the video solutions provided to each question helped me a lot in improving my understanding of basics. The Magoosh team was always available with a solution to any query I had during my prep. The best part of the Magoosh prep was that every concept had a video related to it, thus it was very easy for me to revise my syllabus with the help of video I had flagged.

Magoosh was such a great asset to my studying! Every math video really broke down the different concepts. I was amazed by how many quantitative concepts I learned about on Magoosh showed up on the GREs. The verbal videos also really helped me see sentences differently. I felt so much more confident and prepared taking the GREs this time around!

Wow. Magoosh. I was seriously so lost and frustrated before finding it. I watched every single math video, many more than once. They break down the concepts into manageable bites, and give problems to practice with. The custom practice is also fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about Magoosh -- my wife is actually sick of hearing me sing its praises!

Magoosh was a tremendous help! I hadn't taken a math course in over 10 years, and the videos and practice problems brought me up to speed very quickly. The math problems were challenging to the point that when I took the actual GRE, I was not flustered at all by any of the questions.

Likewise, the verbal practice questions helped me acclimate to the GRE's unique presentation of the problems. I could NOT have gotten a perfect verbal score had it not been for Magoosh. I cannot recommend this site highly enough for those who are serious about doing well on the GRE. Not only does Magoosh provide quality content, but their staff is very friendly and patient with you as you work through the problems.

If you are reading this and unsure about whether to get Magoosh, hesitate no more! This is where you want to be.

Magoosh's elaborate study plan, exhaustive lesson videos, and explanations that come with all questions have helped me learn the ropes of GRE! Whenever I need a further review with a particular question, the helpful staffs have been very attentive and responsive to my e-mails and questions. Magoosh's questions' level of difficulty also matched - or maybe surpassed - the actual GRE.

I had a big time crunch and I had to prepare for GRE in less than 20 days. Magoosh made it possible for me. I subscribed to its 1 month plan. The content is just beyond perfection. I managed a score of 325 in such a short span of time and I would like to attribute this to Magoosh. Thank you!
