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

great video explanations of questions. I would use the adaptive feature in the custom practice section. Additionally very quick turnaround on various questions I had throughout the process

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.

I believe it helped with my timing. It's really easy to do quick problem sets. Customizing the type of questions you receive, you can make mini math sections of just 10 questions. I would take a break at work for 20 mins and just do a set. I would always time them so I wouldn't exceed my break time, and it forced me to work faster.

Exceptional explanations. I don't think there are better explanations anywhere, and I have used Manhattan and Kaplan and GMAC extensively.

Accessibility to videos on my phone was super helpful. Would take walks and listen to Mike during lunch breaks and my commutes.
