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.

Really clear explanations of problems. Very well structured agenda for a 4 week timeline. Loved the links to relevant lessons in the questions, seeing how I was pacing. Just a terrific website!

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!

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.

Magoosh provides a very comprehensive set of video lessons and question bank that helped me build a strong foundation on basic concepts. It also provided very useful strategies that helped me improve my speed of solving both the verbal and quantitative questions.

I love how the website is designed such that I can customised my study to suit my needs (i.e. Custom practices that allows me to tackle questions in specific topics etc.) The various study plans provided on the blog were extremely helpful as well, and Magoosh apps made it much easier to study on-the-go. I had lesser than 2 months to prepare, but Magoosh made studying a breeze.

The Magoosh team also provided excellent customer service and support.

Magoosh provided a valuable framework to guide my studies. As someone who wished to focus primarily on Quant during the preparation process, I went through each of the video modules sequentially which provided a very comprehensive review of the content. I began my GMAT study process with a 640 on my initial GMAT Prep practice test and was able to boost my score to 720 on test day. Thanks so much for providing high-quality content at such an incredible value!

A huge collection of comprehensive and detailed video lessons really helped in my understanding of the various topics in GMAT (Special shout out to Mike McGarry and Chris Lele for their really entertaining lessons). The questions for practice and tests were of high quality and the video explanations provided were also good.

The topic wise videos were quite helpful. It wasn't possible for me to follow a fixed routine because of my busy work schedule. But the online videos by Magoosh let me prepare at my own pace and time.

Magooh helpef me build core grammatical concepts, that helped me solve SC question. The free idiom book is an asset given to those who are preparing for GMAT. No course explained idioms in such a lucid way.
As, I am strong in quant even I went through the videos of quant. I especially like videos of P&C and probability very much. One thing I can simply say about magooh is that no course on this give such a good course at such a less price

Math concepts were clearly explained and tips and tricks were incredibly useful. The practice questions are pure gold and being able to practice on difficult questions for the Math section made it easier during the exam.

I paid the full $299.90 for the Magoosh subscription and it was worth every cent of it to get that 730.
