Magoosh provided me the framework to build a foundation (I am a very weak math test-taker - in high school I scored a 15 on the ACT math section) and to move into more advanced concepts at my own rate.

Magoosh provides cogent, relevant, solid and standard GRE prep material. I'm pretty sure that no other GRE material is closer to official prep material than Magoosh. I improved my Verbal score by a staggering 13 points (from 150 to 163), by following Magoosh material(including blogs!).

Magoosh provided plenty of practice questions for my nightly study sessions. I used the vocabulary flashcards on my phone and I utilized the practice exams they offered. The instructional videos are very useful as well because they directly tell you what to do for the math problems and explain strategies for the verbal section. Mike McGarry's math videos were the game changer for my studying.

By giving practice tests and vocabulary+ Quant improvement

Magoosh had given a superb coaching and sample test papers. Followed them religiously and could score 326 at my first attempt with a month preparation!! Thanks Magoosh..

I got high scores by doing all the practice problems. I’d recommend Magoosh over the more expensive services out there.

The magoosh verbal was much tougher than the actual GRE. Magoosh over-prepared me to tackle the reading comprehension and argument questions. Moreover, I memorized most of the Magoosh Vocab list. I was able to finish my verbal sections with 10 minutes left to spare for both sections.

Extremely thorough and detailed lesson videos.

The overall toughness level of the practice questions is higher than that of actual GRE, so that fact helped me prepare for the worst.

Special thanks to ever awesome guys Chris Lele and Mike Mcgarry, for their brilliant videos covering the various verbal and math topics.

Thanks a lot to the entire Magoosh team for all the efforts put in to help students prepare for the standardized tests.

Keep it up folks !

Taught me everything I needed to know in a self-guided environment that worked with my schedule (working full time) and my learning curve (could skip ahead, go back, timed, untimed...) an amazing study tool!!

Magoosh's one-month study plan, video lessons, practice questions, and vocab flash cards helped me maximize the month of study time I had available. I had been out of school for five years and the GRE--especially the quant section--felt so daunting, but I am so happy with my scores!

It provided really great structure to help me organize my studying even though I had less than a month to study. I did better than I ever thought I would and I think that is largely because of the information from Magoosh

Although I took math courses in college, I hadn't dealt with a lot of the GRE-style math concepts since high school (or earlier) so between military service and my undergrad, that's 15+ years. Combining the Magoosh lessons / practice questions with official study materials gave me a methodical process for identifying weaknesses and strengthening them. Although my quant score was lower than I'd expected, it was significantly better than it was when I began studying 45 days ago - more than 10 points from my diagnostic test I took prior to beginning my studies.

I thought the math lectures were great. I feel like I got a much more intuitive understanding of some basic concepts than I've ever had. I think this was partially due to the fact that my previous master's, and my job, all involve applied statistics and programming, whereas when I took the GRE before (8 years ago) I had been doing sociology and political organizing. And the lectures were a great way to tap into that potential.

It helped me stay organised and of course, practice a lot of questions. Customised practice tests are the best! I can adjust the tests as per mood, strengthening my strong areas sometimes and improving my weak ones. Video lessons specially in Maths were made really well. They were clear and concise. The option to play the video at 2x is such a time saver. I also made full use of your GRE words app.

I loved that the questions were timed and that I was able to take practice tests and they were very real.
I liked that you created the look of the site very similar to the real test.
The questions were on the same level. I even think Magoosh had many hard questions. On the GRE I thought there were less hard questions, however it was great for me to practice.

Magoosh helped me learn to quickly pick up clues about the fill-in-the-blank verbal questions. Once I began to improve my speed at answering these questions accurately, I realized that it was possible to preserve more time for the more difficult reading comprehension and argument analysis questions. This was invaluable. Additionally, with regard to the quantitative section, I had retained very little algebra from college. The last time I took a math class was when I was seventeen years old in community college. Magoosh is excellent for its presentation of basic mathematics. The videos enabled me to be better prepared for the types of questions I would encounter on the real test. I actually made a notebook of the math problems I got wrong, since I would write them out in their entirety in attempt to memorize how to solve questions of that type. Overall, Magoosh is well-worth the price, and I can't sing their praises highly enough!

1) Vocabulary: I learnt common words and basic words. Both of those lists helped me a lot.
2) Practice questions and English learning videos: I practiced all the RC questions and the text completion questions, and looked at all the videos. Both of them were very useful.
Thanks a lot Magoosh :)

Magoosh was amazing! I wasn't too happy with my previous score, and so I spent the few months leading up to my test doing every single problem. There is no way around it - you have to practice. And magoosh offered so many problems with detailed explanations for the ones I got wrong. Just when I thought I knew every way I could be asked a geometry problem, they would throw in a curveball that forced you to look at a problem from a new perspective. More than anything, Magoosh taught me how to instinctively work through problems quickly and efficiently.

Magoosh helped a lot throughout my preparation. I had a month for preparation and Magoosh helped me set a schedule that I could follow and keep pace with. The question bank was very extensive and solving those presented a picture of the actual test. I wish to thank the Magoosh team for answering all my queries on the go.
