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.

Magoosh helped me a lot - particularly with pracatice math questions and video explanations. I also went through the lessons one by one and liked being able to flag the ones I had understood and the ones that needed further review.

How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh reacquainted me with all of the math basics. I found its explanations exceptional. It offered great advice on approach and strategy for reading comp and critical reasoning in particular. I liked how large the question pool was and that there was a lesson on nearly every topic. Magoosh's 3-month study schedule gave me the structure I was looking for in my preparation process. I like that it assigned work in non-Magoosh books and suggested other helpful resources.

Magoosh has helped me in following area:
1. get familiar with the strategy for each particular type of questions that usually appear in the test
2. refresh the basic concept of math as I had not touched them since I graduated 10 years ago
3. develop mental endurance as magoosh, by default, tend to feed you with relatively difficult questions

I would not have had a fighting chance on being successful on quant without Magoosh. The videos were extremely helpful and effective. Knowing I only had 2 months to study, I set the ambitious goal score of 720, which I was able to exceed by 10 points!

Great practice problems and very realistic adaptive testing. I felt over-prepared for the actual test (in a good way). My practice test gave me a 650 but I ended up doing a lot better on the actual test day.
