Magoosh videos cover every GMAT subject very thoroughly. The strategies that are presented make complex problems much easier to solve. The ability to answer questions and have through and detailed answer explanations is extremely helpful and unique to Magoosh.

I had no prior MBA-studying experience and the Magoosh prepared me very well for the test. I used both the verbal and quant prep material and found the written/video answer explanations and lessons very helpful. I also liked the notes functionality and the FAQs.

The videos were so invaluable to me. I am a full-time law student. I took the GMAT in pursuit of the JD/MBA program, and it was tough to study for the GMAT while maintaining a full course load of law school. I had not taken a math class in about 8 years, since high school, so I needed to re-learn a lot of material. The lesson videos helped me so much and made me so much more confident going into the test. Being able to take practice questions online is also extremely helpful. Since the actual GMAT is all on a computer, studying from a book just doesn't cut it. Magoosh is so worth it. Great value for excellent content.

Magoosh's question set is second to none. Honestly, I think that the questions on the Magoosh site were more test like than the retired OG materials. Also, the video explanations are amazing. Something that should not be overlooked is the professionalism of the Magoosh team. Mike McGarry expects people to live excellence to achieve excellence; this can be seen on forum posts when a student uses colloquial language when discussing a sentence correction problem. Mike's approach is by no means harsh or rude but should be seen as encouraging. In addition, the response time of the team when submitting a question on the site is extremely quick and helpful. There was never a need to send a follow-up email because the first email was very thorough. For the price, Magoosh is totally worth it.

The largest strength that Magoosh has is the explanation videos. I believe that the questions in the question bank fairly represented the actual test, with the math being a tad bit more difficult. This helped me prepare for the actual test.

I took the GMAT this morning after 5 weeks of studying, using nothing but Magoosh and GMATPrep practice exams. Magoosh improved my score by almost 100 points from when I first started, and I am sure that if I spent another month using Magoosh, my score would be even higher. Thank you!

Magoosh gave me the knowledge and confidence to perform my best on test day. Mike's math and verbal videos are very easy to understand. He is great at breaking down the information and explaining it in a clear, straightforward way. The practice problems were very helpful - especially the answer explanations after each question. The timer on the math practice problems helped me improve my timing on the math section.

Magoosh was an integral part of my studying, and I would recommend it to anyone studying for the GMAT. I learned more from 1 month of Magoosh, than with two prior months of book-studying.

When I previously took the GMAT, I felt like I was guessing on all of the math questions. This time around, I felt more confident in my answers and the content. Although my overall score did not go up, I achieved my goal for the math portion. My timing was also much better - I also learned to cut my losses on questions that I just didn't know how to answer.

The Magoosh training videos provide a solid basis of knowledge along with super-helpful mental math tricks not offered by the other companies. The hundreds of solution videos to the Magoosh math and verbal questions gave me the "training wheels" I needed to achieve a 750.

I followed the 3 month advanced study schedule on the Magoosh blog. Magoosh helped me a lot by making sure I focus on all question types. The video explanations after every question gave valuable feedback on the right approach to questions. The Magoosh team was also very prompt in replying to any query making the Magoosh experience even better.

I'm glad I chose Magoosh! :)

Magoosh certainly helped me practice GMAT question types, particularly with the hardest questions. I particularly liked having videos to highlight strategies in my weakest areas.
