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.

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 helped me learn how to do the math the way the GRE wanted me to do it. The material helped me learn how to think logically in math, instead of brute-forcing my way through problems.

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!

The study schedule was well-paced, rigorous but not soul-crushing. All the explanation videos were very informative. Both experts from math and verbal are incredibly clear and highly skilled at what they do. Chris, I venerate your vocab work and Mike, I love you 3 x 10^3. Thank you both and thanks Magoosh team!

I completely relied on Magoosh for my preparation, and that has done wonders for me! I simply loved the online portal, with some amazing features like daily schedules, customizable quizzes, estimated score, and much more. These truly helped me analyse my performance and work on the topics I wasn't initially comfortable with. The lessons gave me some really handy tips to go about cracking the GRE. I can't express my gratitude enough, thank you so much Magoosh!

Magoosh helped me a lot by teaching me the esential ideas and methods, especially for Quantitative section, which seriously helped me cut down on the time it took me to solve a question. Magoosh provides one of the best prep courses at an unbelievably cheap price. I couldn't thank Magoosh enough for helping me achieve my target score.

Doing the Magoosh quantitative problems and listening to the in-depth explanatory videos saved me from overlooking some lesser-known subjects, such as combinatorics and integer properties, while broadly honing my skills and speed. Verbal sections also helped: they gave me a better sense of how to interpret written information and match that semantic pattern. In summary, had it not been for Magoosh, I would not have been able to efficiently polish my initial deficiencies. On the GRE, time is a precious resource, and the confidence I built by using Magoosh allowed me to ace the exam.

I started this process with no idea what this exam entailed, or how to study for it. Perhaps most critically - completely lacked confidence that I would be able to achieve anything near a satisfactory score. Magoosh was a complete life saver as it helped me break down the time I had to study, space out the material at a comfortable space, and build up my confidence that I could in fact perform at the level I need to. There's absolutely no way I would have made it as far as I did with out Magoosh!

Magoosh was a LIFE SAVER. As a nurse, my erratic hours make studying difficult at times, but the program was able to be a guide that I could stick to. Before I started my prep, sometimes the biggest issue was just how I should organize learning such a variety of info, but Magoosh absolutely saved me here with the day by day guides.

It gave me a good checklist of things to do every day that I could just go through. That was nice because I didn’t have to think about what i was planning on doing, so I could focus on just studying. I also liked the amount of practice questions and the videos for each question.
