How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh helped by providing very in depth explanations to the answers to the questions and also the video lessons helped to refresh concepts that were previously learnt in school that have been forgotten. Magoosh also provides mant time saving strategies that was very useful when I took the Gmat. The staff at Magoosh were very knowledgeable and helpful when I emailed them with further enquires.

Magoosh helped tremendously! My first practice exam, I scored a 480 (yikes). I am a non-traditional student, so I haven't taken a standardized test in years. Honestly, because I have been out of school for so long, I was shooting for a respectable score (solid 600s) and considering State schools. But with my score now, I am considering better business schools. The quant videos are amazing, and I credit your program for my stellar score. The Magoosh program works! Thanks so much!

The math tutorials were extremely helpful for bringing me up to speed on all the math concepts I needed for the test. After reading the math explanations in the OG, I was just as confused as when I first started, so I knew I needed a more in depth review to improve my math score. I watched every single Magoosh math video and found them incredibly helpful.

The lesson videos were quick and helpful (especially Verbal). Being a native English speaker, I had a good sense of most grammar rules only by ear and never really associated them with real, strict rules.So the lessons helped me make those associations, which in turn made me much more aware of what to look out for in Sentence Correction questions.

How did Magoosh help you?
The questions were very close to what I saw on the actual GMAT. The explanations were extremely clear and helpful. I loved that I could read the text or watch the video depending on my mood. In a classroom I would have had to listen to explanations for problems I understood, and felt rushed on my own questions. With Magoosh, I had all the extra help I needed on what confused me, and didn't waste time on what I already knew. I loved that I could study any where and any time that worked for me. Your blog mentioned most 700+ scorers study for 200+ hours, so I logged 200 hours on your app and easily hit the mid 700s. I practiced on the train, waiting to meet friends for dinner, on lunch breaks, at at home at my kitchen table.

Better UX than everyone else (Manhattan / veritas prep). I loved video explanations of each question - I'm learn best with sound! Question banks were great. I used customise your practice the most - by just doing questions at different levels, it gave me a great appreciation for what questions were at what difficulty. I also found it really difficult to access the very hard questions when using your adaptive software - so it gave me a chance to practice those.

The major difference Magoosh made in my overall GMAT experience was by providing me the motivation in the form of Magoosh Help Support mails and excellent blogs. Also, needless to mention the excellent quality of practice questions.
