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

How did Magoosh help you?
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.

I used the Magoosh 1 month study plan and the Manhattan 5 lbs book of questions to supplement my studies. Magoosh was excellent! The practice problems they provide are very helpful; they emulate the real GRE questions and the get you practicing for the exam from day one. The video lessons are also contain useful information. Though some of the videos were on topics that I was already familiar with, they still contained information about the test that I wouldnt have known otherwise. For example, a lesson might tell you how certain concepts will be tested on the exam, which is useful to know even if youre familiar with the concept. All in all, Magoosh is excellent so thanks again to the Magoosh team!

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.

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 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.
