The quantitative lessons were very clearly laid out and gave me the information I needed to know quickly. I only had three weeks between exams and it made all the difference.

Magoosh provided me with both a huge set of realistic GMAT questions and a perfect framework to structure my preparation. The mix of learning about the theory by watching videos and developing routine to apply my knowledge by answering the questions helped me to improve step by step.

Magoosh and team are the sole reason for my success! I loved how they have structured the program. It is amazing how Magoosh, with such a small team, responds to emails in detail in such a short time. True Excellence! :D

The video lessons from Magoosh are really helpful and I did all my studying from there. I would recommend that to anyone preparing. Mike is pretty great!

It helped with my motivation because I was able to watch the videos on my phone. On the computer the timer and the video immediately following a missed question was great.

The video lessons given by Mike and Chris covering the course content were very well done and easy to follow. Also, the video explanations to the practice questions were super helpful - they really helped me understand my mistakes on every question that I got wrong, I was never left thinking 'how/why did they do that?'. Besides the free GMATPrep software from mba.com, Magoosh was the only prep that I used for the GMAT (didn't even have the OG), so a Magoosh Premium subscription is definitely sufficient to tackle the GMAT. Thanks guys!

After I had taken a class, I realized that I still I wasn't where I wanted to be on the test so I looked for some more problems. Magoosh was great for allowing me to practice questions at the level of difficulty that would challenge me and help me improve.

I spent several months studying for the GMAT prior to signing up for Magoosh. In the first few months of preparation, I used a range of GMAT prep books and only saw moderate improvements to my score. I then signed up for Magoosh and used a six-week study plan that I developed with the help of Magoosh. I found the video lessons and the customizable practice questions to be extremely unique and helpful. The large inventory of questions allowed me to practice (as much as I wanted!) question types that I was struggling with. On test day, I felt extremely prepared to answer the official GMAT questions. I completed the test with ease and saw a 100 point improvement with the help of Magoosh.

How did Magoosh help you?
I only had three weeks to prepare for the GMAT. I hadn't done any standardised exams since college, which for me was almost a decade ago. During these three weeks, I worked a 12 hour-a-day job and travelled extensively for business, so my study time was very limited.

Having looked around online, I signed up for the 30 day Magoosh package, which was the shortest course available anywhere. It proved to be a great investment. Without enough time to procure a copy of the OG, I used Magoosh materials almost exclusively, and got a 770 first time. The videos were concise, the iinstruction was professional and unwavering, and the practice problems were comprehensive. Especially useful features: video transcripts, allowing me to skip ahead, and ability to watch videos in accelerated mode. I probably still don't know what Mike's and Chris's voices sound like in real tempo!

Thank you for a wonderful product, which I would highly recommend to others!

I only used it for the math and IR parts so can't comment on the English. The lessons really helped with learning the relevant concepts and strengthen my math skills. The quiz mode questions were very helpful in simulating the actual exam.

On math, mostly on practice for dificult problems. On verbal it was the videos on sentence correction and the videos related to each question.

Mike's plans were great! I started with the 3 month math heavy and then switched to advanced half way through. Hard and very hard questions were much more difficult than questions I saw on the test so I had a lot of confidence in the actual exam. Loved the videos as well and being able to watch them at 1.5x speed was a huge time-saver. Thanks Magoosh!!

The videos with explanations for every single question were incredibly helpful. The instructors were all fantastic and, although I didn't need to, I felt that I could easily reach out to Magoosh if I encountered any issues. I also (mostly) followed the provided study guide, which was really helpful in timing everything efficiently.
