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.

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.

Magoosh provided me with the best possible and complete study material. The videos, especially those of Maths, explained the concepts in a crystal clear manner and taught some very useful shortcuts for solving even the hardest of the problems. I highly recommend Magoosh.

Magoosh is the absolute best - it’s the perfect balance of flexibility and structure for people working full-time, in that I was able to tailor their study plan to fit my existing schedule. The Magoosh material not only helped me to relearn concepts I hadn’t seen in years (especially the math), but also was crucial in teaching me how to approach different kinds of problems, and how to learn from my mistakes over time. I’m so grateful for the program!

I was looking to improve my math scores (I am applying to engineering graduate programs and the math scores are the limiting factor for entry). Magoosh gave me the chance to run hundreds of math problems and really cater my studying to a few specific topics that troubled me. I was able to improve my math score by 6 points, which sets me up well for my graduate school applications.

The math videos were a great refresher of the test’s math content. I was only able to spend about a week preparing for the exam and I don’t know how I could have prepared for the math as easily without them.

I briefly used Magoosh to prepare before I took the GRE in December 2017 after completing a Manhattan Prep course. Although the practice questions were helpful, I wasn't sure how to tackle learning new content because there wasn't a curriculum. When I started preparing for the GRE last month, I used the one month advanced dashboard that guides you through which lessons to complete. It was incredibly helpful to have a study plan that suggested lessons and the types of questions I needed to practice.

Magoosh broke everything down into simple terms. It went way back to middle school and taught me all the simple skills! GRE Math is really all about the small building blocks! For both the math and verbal sections, they taught tips and tricks to word smarter, not harder. My score improved IMMENSELY after using Magoosh! I am recommending to everyone I know. Thank you, Magoosh!

Magoosh made it very clear exactly what I needed to study for the test, how to pace myself, and provided all the materials in perfectly sized pieces for each day of study! I ended up becoming really obsessed with solving very hard GRE math problems every day - very much at the bemusement of my friends. I ended up really liking studying for the test. Expanding my vocabulary made me suddenly cognizant of so many common(ish) words I had been ignoring my whole life. And solving math puzzles is just plain fun, I'll definitely continue doing them even though I've already taken the test!

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!).
