How did Magoosh help you?
The logic of the lessons was very helpful. When I started my studies, I would get a question wrong, then watch the videos to see what I should have done. The logic completely missed me. But I stayed diligent in watching the lessons and soon i was getting questions right, but watching the videos after each study question anyway. (Don't skip this!) I quickly realized I was seeing patterns and "number sense" that I picked up from the lessons that even the instructors were missing. Several times on the official gmat (math and verbal) I was able to answer questions without even getting into a problem because I could recognize relationships between the questions and among the answers.

The quality of the video tutorials in fantastic. The questions are top notch as well. I also got a discount for GMAT 3&4 from Magoosh. Other than that, the customer service has been nothing but phenomenal. I'd be lying if I said I scored so well without you.

Magoosh questions and the video explanation were the pivotal resource for me to jump the score. I really liked the reference links to further material to better understand the concepts.
I'm also grateful for the timely help on any question I had, it really helped me in strengthening the concepts and giving me clarity.
I also liked the blog posts a lot, very helpful information there.

Last but not the least, the statistics on dashboard pushed me to improve on my performance - it was like a game for me, in which I felt the urge to improve my "correct percentage" and "average time per question". In turn, it helped me to score better.

Magoosh’s videos are unparalleled. The lesson videos offered a refresher on topics I hadn’t seen in nearly 10 years & the answer explanation videos helped me to identify patterns and shortcuts to improve my timing. Further, I loved the fact that the custom practice is adaptive, rather than being a mix of all questions.

Magoosh helped me gained the necessary self-confidence to crack the harder questions in GMAT, especially in Sentence correction and data sufficiency. The recorded classes by Mike McGarry and Chris Lele were very good and helpful, specially when it came to how to approach each question type. I would definitely recommend Magoosh to anyone who wants crack GMAT with a score of 700+.

The video explanations after each practice question are great. A few weeks before my test I reviewed several questions that I initially got wrong to analyze what kinds of mistakes I was making most often. I think that made a big difference in my score.

How did Magoosh help you?
I started off around 490(practice score) in August and was totally intimidated by GMAT. Over the last few months, I believe that Magoosh, especially all the solution video from Chris, improved my score from 490 to 710 (actual score). I am very happy with the result but even happier with the progress I made with the help of Magoosh. I found all the resources and videos easy to understand even for someone like me who hated math in school and has never attempted math problems again for 15 years. I've tried couple of Korean online courses but they were way more overpriced, of less qualify and they had time limit (usually 30 days) to finish the whole course. I love the fact that Magoosh lets the students to take as much time as they need and also for unlimited number of timed practice exam.
Overall, I am very happy and thankful to Magoosh for making all these amazing resources available. Thank you again!

Magoosh taught me everything I needed to know for the test. The videos were fantastic and allowed me to go at my own pace. The 1000+ practice problems helped me see just about every type of possible problem I would get on the test. I couldn’t have achieved this score without Magoosh. Thank you!

Great model for quant questions - I watched all the videos on double speed, and they really helped me to improve my factoring and efficiency in ways that cracked the low-700s threshold I was previously stuck at.

Magoosh was amazing! It helped boost my quant score more than I could have ever anticipated. Although I was already pretty strong in the verbal section, Magoosh helped me to refine my skills even more. The video lessons as well as the videos attached to each practice question were immensely helpful. I couldn't say enough good things about Magoosh. Thank you!

I followed the Magoosh 3 month advanced study plan to prepare for my exam. This helped me to stay on track with my studying by adhering to a schedule. I found the quant lesson videos on the Magoosh website to be particularly helpful as they retaught me concepts that I had not seen for several years. Moreover, I found the practice problems I did in Magoosh to be more helpful than other books and sites since every problem in the Magoosh database is accompanied with a video explanation for the problem and links to more videos explaining the underlying concepts. This helped me to more fully understand my mistakes so I could correct them in the future.

The biggest help from Magoosh was in verbal section. Video explanations of practice questions and video lectures cleared the necessary concepts aptly. Practice questions were similar to the ones in final GMAT exam. Overall, Magoosh completely understands GMAT and helps the students in the best possible manner.

Magoosh is amazing! The videos, practice questions, and flashcard apps were immensely helpful. It’s obvious the Magoosh team spends a lot of time digging into gmat content and making smart study materials which are easy to use. The videos are well-structured, it’s easy to take notes within the platform, and the number and variety of questions is great. Overall, Magoosh took all the stress out of studying for me. Also, for everything you’re getting, Magoosh is very affordable. Well worth the money!

I felt the Magoosh problems were significantly more challenging than the actual GMAT. That provided great prep.

How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh helped me understand more about not just about how to approach math problems, but about how to approach numbers, how they behave. This approach took longer to grasp than I think other programs might, but ultimately I think served me better. I love Magoosh and will suggest them to anybody I know studying!
Also, I loved Magoosh explanations of problems. Having the written or video option helped me so much, especially on the more difficult problems. I often wouldn't immediately understand one, but then the other would click. So having the two options of explanations was awesome.
