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 helped me broaden my vocabulary but also focus in on words that were relevant to the test. The GRE likes to use common words with secondary meanings. Many of the flash cards included such words.

The entire package is clear, crisp and concise, which is what a busy undergrad student needs. The course curriculum is no-nonsense, straight to the point. The exercises do not beat around the bush and are all specifically designed to prepare you for the actual test day.

Magoosh structured my days, gave me a good idea of what was on the test, and made the process of learning the test feel incremental and rewarding instead of overwhelming and undoable. I honestly couldn’t have done this without Magoosh.

Greetings everyone,
If I say Magoosh is THE BEST prep for GRE, you probably would be thinking I am being boastful or perhaps trying to market MAGOOSH :p. But one just cannot be modest while talking about it. If you are preparing to take a GRE, Magoosh has to be the way. It is like a one-stop-shop, which has all the materials one might need to ace in GRE. The QUALITY of questions included in the study material are unparalleled and are closest to the type and quality of questions one sees in GRE. And if you are scared of the Verbal section, then let me assure you, Chris ( from Magoosh :p ) got it covered for you.

Best wishes!

I really only used magoosh for verbal because that’s the score that was most important for me. I loved the bite-size modules, practice problems, and the ability to move at a fairly rapid pace. I went from a 152 to a 164 verbal score in just under a month!

Magoosh helped me learn new strategies to taking the GRE that I wouldn’t have had without the program. It also gave me confidence going into the test, because instead of being worried about the time or questions I was unsure of, I put the strategies I had learned to use and got a higher score than I had even hoped for!

Magoosh was immensely helpful for studying for the GRE. This was the first and only time I had taken the test so I wasn't sure how to prepare. I LOVED the feature that let you map out how to study - whether you were beginner/advanced, and the timeline you wanted to study - 1/3/6 months. I chose the beginner, 3-month course and did it religiously every day. I also used Magoosh's GRE vocab app that has 1000 common GRE words alongside the online program. These two were all I used in my preparation and I felt it was more than enough. Magoosh outlined what to do every day, and I did the practice problems on the videos, practice tests, etc. until I felt I understood the topic. I think Magoosh does have a lot of really challenging problems that prepare you for the hardest on the test, but it is good to remember that the entire GRE is not composed of those advanced problems. I also thought the explanation of why the answers were what they were was completely necessary for my understanding of each problem.

Magoosh GRE offers a comprehensive package for your test prep. I was worried about a low score in Quant but I ended up practicing most of the questions on Magoosh twice; it helped me stay calm and confident on the actual test day. The small tips that Magoosh experts sent for test day were as important as the detailed video lessons. I practiced the Verbal section a lot- I could have done better as I used to score around 163+ in mock tests. The Magoosh GRE Flashcards are a life-saver, I used to go through them while sitting in a bus or a train or even in a boring class in college. I have a much better vocabulary now.

Magoosh helped a ton with vocab. Studying the 300 most common words enabled me to increase my accuracy on sentence completion questions.

Magoosh was also helpful for the Quantitative section. The lesson videos were a great refresher on material I hadn't reviewed since high school.

The Magoosh platform was such a great tool in helping me organize and administer my time appropriately. I loved the everyday to-do lists but also the flexibility of the custom practice which allowed me to focus on the areas I wanted to practice the most. The video lessons and explanations were so helpful as well! I would definitely recommend to everyone!

The math strategies were extremely helpful. I would completely credit my perfect score for that.

Verbal strategies were also useful.

And most importantly thank you for extending the subscription for three months.

The math modules were super helpful, not only because they covered all the topics in detail but they went over tips in faster ways to solve problems.
The vast number of practice question in both quant and verbal were extremely helpful.
I would recommend using the vocab flashcards in conjunction with the verbal questions.
Being able to practice mock tests to get to know your pace at which you completed the exam was also very helpful.
Using Magoosh meant that I received my target score in my first try and so saved on having to pay to take further GRE tests.

Magoosh offers excellent preparation services for the GRE at affordable rates. The video lessons cover all the necessary topics and offer some tricks of the trade which prove very useful in the examination.

I especially appreciate Magoosh's practice questions. The answers to each question are accompanied by an explanation video as well. This helped me understand the correct approach if I got an incorrect answer. I even got good estimates of my final scores and could even see statistics related to number of questions answered correctly/incorrectly for each topic. Also, custom practice tests allowed me to practise more questions of particular topics that I wasn't too comfortable with. The practice tests mimic the time duration and, moreover, reflect the difficulty of the actual test.

I was also impressed with Magoosh's prompt and efficient query service. In case I had any difficulty understanding a video lesson, explanation to an answer, or even if I wanted to ask some general tips regarding the test - I could simply send in a mail and the Magoosh team would reply within a day or two and clarify my doubts.

I would recommend Magoosh to anyone taking the GRE. It is the best way to prepare!

Good practice questions! I only had a week and a half to prepare so I just drilled questions over and over. When I first took the practice GRE I got a 152 verbal so a 9 point improvement in under two weeks is huge.

Magoosh was instrumental in preparing me for the GRE! I had a little over a month to prepare, and although I was nervous about refreshing myself on years' worth of high school math in such a short time, the 30 day studying schedule was perfect for my needs. I loved how it efficiently tackled every aspect of the test, ranging from foundational math knowledge to mock essays and plenty of practice questions. Magoosh offered an incredible amount of flexibility; I could work at a time that fit my needs, customize practice problems according to difficulty and subject, and rewatch videos if needed.

I especially appreciated the video lessons; Mike made re-learning high school math less painful (and at times fun!) while Chris offered wonderful strategies to tackle the essays and those dastardly triple blank vocabulary questions. They were a great source of comfort whenever I was doubting the material and how ready I felt for the exam. :)

Moreover, I appreciate your entire team + the work you all put into your products! Thank you for creating study programs that are accessible and affordable, and for helping me along my graduate school journey. I am officially a Magoosh fan!
