Magoosh videos are brilliant. Very friendly and easy to understand. Magoosh support staff is absolutely brilliant. The time they spent in clearly answering questions shows team's commitment. I also liked its improved website and ability to take notes. There are lot of questions available to practise in timed sets and there are very useful ways to review the question set. I would recommend magoosh to anyone starting to prepare gmat. I would suggest to watch tough section videos multiple times and make sure to revisit problem one got wrong in each section. Also, do visit forums such as gmat club to check solutions of official problems in addition to magoosh.

I started using Magoosh (both the verbal and math) after I had already been using Manhattan for several months. I felt like something was missing from Manhattan--I was learning a lot but I didn't have enough practice questions to run through. Magoosh had LOTS of practice problems, and their video explanations of questions were AMAZINGLY helpful. I watched all of their lessons as well and felt like I learned a lot. My only critique is that their questions (like Manhattan's) weren't totally representative of the test questions. After I took the test for the first time, I switched to just practicing with real GMAT questions (I bought the tests & questions packs) and supplemented that with studying the lesson videos on Magoosh. I ultimately got a 690 on the GMAT, but that was from using Magoosh, GMAT practice tests and Manhattan in conjunction.

I loved the Magoosh online prep course. I signed up for the Magoosh prep course about a month before my actual exam date in order to supplement what I was already studying for the GMAT. Although the course is self-paced and delivered completely online, I like how there was a full video explanation for each practice question. The instructors really know their stuff and I felt that they went into more detail than most of the other GMAT courses out there in order to help you really understand each concept. I also really liked how I had the ability to customize the level of difficulty of each practice question. I started off with the easier questions to help build my confidence and then started working on the harder questions to really help challenge myself and prep for the actual test. I don't really write reviews but I must say that I highly recommend this course. The value you get is worth 20 times more than the price you pay for the course.

I took this course reading the great reviews and knowing I can study the material via apps on my phone since I travel every week being a consultant. I studied on flights, during lunch breaks, nights after work, made notes of important things. But in my practice mocks, I couldn't see much improvement, I moved from 550 to 650. I benefited a lot from Math section but Verbal score didn't see much jump. I realized that the SC course is teaching me excellent grammar details that I'm unable to retain, so it wasn't working well in my case, also I found CR section less detailed than required, with me unable to apply strategy consistently. So I realized I need another course for Verbal that was more practical for my current low level, I'm sure this course is great for a lot other people, but I couldn't derive the same benefit. But I kept coming back to Magoosh for other great things they offer : tips, idiom ebooks, math videos, question bank to practice timing, etc. I finally gave my first GMAT and got a satisfactory 730, and Magoosh did play 50 % role, so deserves credit. Their material is great, but can be improved.

I have tried couple of other products. What I found unique about Magoosh is that even when you are practicing problems you will always find yourself in front of a screen and a timer, so you become mentally prepared to solve questions with 2 mins limit. Something the proved invaluable when I took the actual test.

Magoosh dashboard is your best friend. There you can monitor your progress and analyze your performance by topic and difficulty level.

Additionally, I found Magoosh questions to be a bit harder than the actual exam which I thought was pretty helpful because they train you to spot patterns and discover the underlying issue very quickly

It was in June 2015 that I decided that I must appear for gmat exam in this year. But I was confused regarding the prep classes that I should take since the cost of prep was a major factor influencing my decision. A colleague of mine suggested me to purchase the premium package of magoosh. I purchased it for just around INR 6500 and started studying from Sept 1st week. I had scheduled my exam for 9th Oct and this was my 1st attempt. I knew that it was too ambitious of me to think that I could prepare in just a month's time, but I did anyway and I got a score of 730 with Q49 and V41. I am happy that the effort, time and money I invested paid off well :)

I got a 680 (Q-44, V-38) on my first GMAT and was really disappointed as I had put a lot of time in my studies and had gotten a 720 (Q-47, V-42) on my last GMAT prep practice exam. I enrolled with Magoosh only because of the 50 point guarantee but never expected to get at least a 730. I just took the test and got a 740 unofficial score with Q-49 and V-42. My Quant score has never been that high and I owe it all to Magoosh! The practice question are so well put and really makes you think about how to approach the official questions correctly.

How Magoosh helped me touch 720 on my first attempt! October 11 | 2015

As a non-native looking to give the GMAT for the first time, I was on the lookout for an effective,affordable online course to help me cross the 700 barrier. The $99 Magoosh premium course seemed like a perfect fit, and after touching 720 on my first attempt, I am glad I picked the course.
The course is designed around a number of audio-visual lectures focusing on specific concepts and strategies required to master the nuances of the test. The question pool is also great for practice, and the questions are a decent approximation of the ones I eventually saw on the actual test. The video explanations for every question were concise and eye-opening.
The staff is helpful, and any query I had was addressed promptly via email. Also,the 3 month study schedule designed by the Magoosh team allowed me to streamline my studies.
Overall, I would highly recommend the Magoosh premium plan for its value for money, and especially to those who learn better using an audio-visual medium.

Good Lectures and huge Questionbase. However, the Video Explanations are not always in support of the Lectures and might even contradict them.
I felt that it was a good way of studying but unforunately it did not help my score as well as expected. Therefore, I requested a refund which was given to me promptly and without further questions. Also, the support in general is quite good as they always responded in time.

All in all, Magoosh Premium is a nice but not perfectly developed training course with good service features. If you want a better course which might help your score better, you have to pay a lot more though.

When considering the wide variety of sources for GMAT exam preparation, I have to admit I was not quick to settle on Magoosh's online-only format. I have always been the student who sat in the front row of class and took diligent notes, but that never seemed to provide me with enough review of the material to feel confident when an exam inevitably came around, so I decided to roll the dice and commit to an environment where lessons could be repeated as many times as I wanted, until the material really soaked in - and boy am I happy I did!

Magoosh offers three or four study guide variations that help you plan the 1-3 months leading up to exam day; from here, you can easily plan what video lessons to review, which topics and question types you should practice, and using their super intuitive "Custom Practice" configurator, know that you're only going to be given questions relevant to the material you've studied (which really helps prevent low morale from answering questions incorrectly, even when you were never taught the material in the first place).

Overall, although I am admittedly not a great test taker, Magoosh helped me secure a rock solid score on my first round, all while I balanced a full time job and relationship. I'm incredibly appreciative of the service the team at Magoosh provided, and for ~$100, I honestly can't think of a better, more well rounded alternative.

Go for it and good luck!
