Magoosh is a good tool for GMAT aspirants, quant questions are very useful to students, In GMAT real exam I got some questions same as in magoosh quant. coming to verbal section this section is a quite different from math’s, It requires complete knowledge of English along with lots of patience to read passages. I felt magoosh passages are a bit lengthier than GMAT orginal exam.
Positives:
• Great flexibility to practice questions as we like,
• Magoosh score predictor is very accurate.
• Explanation of questions and their answers is very nice.
• Customer service is good, reply for doubts will be addressed soon.
• Magoosh YouTube videos like Tuesdays with Kevin are very useful.

Considerations: The only thing I feel wrong with Magoosh is the slow pace of English lessons.

Magoosh is great. Their concept videos are incredibly detailed and give you a great foundation for everything you'll need. Additionally, their practice problems have video solutions that walk you through every step so you're never lost and know exactly what you may have done wrong. I would definitely recommend Magoosh to anyone who is serious about getting a top score. Between their study plans and content, they are one of the best out there. Before Magoosh I didn't know the mechanics of sentence correction on the GMAT and would choose answers that "sounded" best. I wanted something that would help me learn how to actually solve SC questions and not just make educated guesses. The only thing I think they could do better would be their CATs.

Magoosh provides perfect tools to tackle all GMAT sections.

The lessons are short and focuses on main points and hence are a perfect resource to refer to for people who have short study cycles. The video are broken down well and the content is crisp.

The online tool is easy to use and provides good explanation for all questions. Question bank is exhaustive and provides variety of questions for each topic. The tool also help you to maintain your error log and hence is a great asset to learn from your mistakes. The best part about Magoosh is that is provides a clean user interface which makes it very easy to use it for long duration as well.

I'm a native speaker. Without any verbal practice I still got a V40. As with many other native speakers, our quant scores aren't very strong.

I wrote the GMAT for the first time and got a 690 which is identical to what I had on my GMAT prep tests.

After searching for a good score guarantee prep company Magoosh beat out the competition. The best part about going through all the Magoosh materials is that for every problem that you do there are video solutions. These solutions are in simple English and can be viewed up to 1.5 times in speed -- this means that every problem you do, you can see a video solution to the problem in under a minute. There wasn't a single problem that I did that I didn't understand why I got it incorrect after watching the videos.

Unfortunately, on test day, I didn't translate these efforts into much of a score improvement. My quant score improved by 4 points, my verbal by 2 points to q46 v42 and my new score was 720.

I'd still recommend this program to others because regardless of the program, on the final day it's just you and the test. My belief is that another prep company wouldn't have helped me do any better on the quant (I wanted 49+).

Also, I got my 99 refund back. Given the cost and the guarantee, even after looking at many alternatives, there wasn't anything that was close to Magoosh in overall value.

I was really impressed by the videos. I spent the last few days before the exam going through the sentence correction videos. It helped me in improving my verbal from 34 to 41 on the actual test. Also, the questions are close to actual GMAT level. Reading Comprehension was a little tough, but overall the level is very close to the actual exam. Also, the questions cover the whole syllabus, and nothing is amiss. The score approximation is way off, it predicted count 48 and verbal 38, I ended up getting Q50 and V41 :) I will recommend Magoosh as the preferred choice for GMAT preparation.

I enrolled for Magoosh premium course after faltering on my second attempt at GMAT. The course material is excellent with good video lessons. It also explicitly covers many concepts, such as If vs Whether, etc, which cause maximum confusion to students.

The practice problems are representative of the actual test, especially for quant I found the practice questions even better than those of Manhattan. But the main plus pointer for me was its support service, which was prompt and to the point. Its tutors were extremely helpful and Magoosh has many good blogs written which are quite helpful as they provide un parallel insights for GMAT preparation.

Overall, I must say this is the course which gives the best ROI.

I have joined Magoosh Premium Recently.

These people are helping alot. They have helped me in generating the plans that I could follow. The most important thing is they are answering all your questions within a day and that too very precisely.
The video tutorial/flashcards allow the flexibility of doing it whenever you are free.

Everyone I have interacted with is the Best you can get from them.

I would recommend Magoosh for those who have ended up with a score greater than 650 and wanna get to their dream score. They have also offered Score Guarantee. I am hoping the best out of them.

Video explanations of Magoosh are really good . Magoosh prep will help to brush up all basics . When I started my preparation for gmat , I was looking for some online classes which will help me in the right direction and Magoosh gave that confidence .

Coming to question bank it is limited , and same questions are popping up during full length tests as well . full length tests are not giving the right picture of my preparation . Though video explanation for each question is very helpful.

I would say , Magoosh is good for kick starting ones preparation .

Support from Magoosh team was fantastic !!!!

Magoosh was a fantastic choice for GMAT preparation. You need to be disciplined and persistent -- skills you'll need to enter any elite MBA program -- and follow through their well-structured study schedules.
The math videos are excellent and really give you a 360 degree view of the quantitative aspect of the GMAT. Many lessons are worth remembering for long after your GMAT.
Their weakest link was the verbal videos, which I found to be too theoretical and hard to follow. I suggest they take a lighter approach, but again, I had strong verbal scores prior to the examination.
Their practice bank is very good and seeing your progress as you solve 10-20 at a time definitely motivates you.
Magoosh also extended my subscription after I postponed my initial test date: a very generous gesture.
Great value for what you get out of it!

I purchased the premium product, but mainly used it to focus on increasing my math score. Great videos/resources, with thorough explanations. The 3 month daily study schedule also helped keep me accountable and on track. The additional resources are also key to your success with a full time job. The flashcards are an easy way to practice your math skills while on the metro commute to work. I had taken the GMAT once before without a course, but was unsatisfied with my score. Magoosh was more flexible than Princeton Review/Kaplan and was perfect for self-study. Highly recommend this course!
