Magoosh offers a unique product, unique content at a unique price. Given that it is one of the smaller shops in the GMAT prep world some of you may have apprehensions and rightly so, because it is more or less an obscure GMAT prep company.

Thanks to GMATCLUB Magoosh will one day cease to be obscure as the content provided has been designed by accredited experts.

Most of the content videos (SC, CR, IR, RC and Quant) have been created by Brent Hanneson who is well known GMAT guru in Canada. Brent scored a 770 and he used to be an instructor at Veritas and now does private tutoring and a conducts a GMAT class at UBC. All the Math Questions video explanations are narrated by Brent. The Math questions have been inspired by old OG questions and not even a single explanation will leave you hanging.

Now for the not so great part, most of verbal questions are very good, but there are few out there that deserve to be done away with. Verbal questions have been created by Dave Scalise and are narrated by 'Verbal Lady' (well they don't reveal her identity). Unfortunately the Verbal lady is quite monotone and likes to rush through the explanations, but overall the Verbal content is solid. The RC passages are among the best out there at par with RC99, Veritas and MGMAT.

What really differentiates Magoosh is their customer service. Their response time for emails is almost none, if you email Bhavin Parikh he'll get back to you within 10-15 minutes. If you have any issues with the content you'll find that the Magoosh team has a real west coast work ethic. As they're easy to deal with and ready to roll-up their sleeves to help you out.

Overall, Magoosh offers an excellent product at a very decent price. I wish, I had found their website before I paid 1300$ for a prep course with a major test prep company.

The video lessons were very helpful. All the GMAT topics were covered wonderfully! Also the OG video solution for maths came in handy.
The practice questions helped me a lot in finding out my weak areas. At the end of each session, it also suggested me some video lessons that helped me improving specific areas.
Another thing that really impressed me was their prompt response to my queries, be it related to specific questions or GMAT as a whole.
Magoosh played a very important role in my GMAT preparation.
I would certainly recommend this course to everyone, not just GMAT, but also for GRE.

I found Magoosh material decent enough to kickstart my preparation with. The numerous videos and questions provide ample concepts and practice.
It allows resetting question bank which is a good option to retake tests. I found the Idioms handbook pretty useful. The flashcards is an interesting way to learn while relaxing your mind from the usual ways of learning.
But the difficulty level is on the lower side. So, I further used Manhattan books in addition to OG content to further my preparation.
I will recommend this course to those who want to start their preparation from the very basics.

I purchased the Magoosh Premium product after a short experience with it through a GMATClub trial.

What first attracted me to Magoosh was the guide - a clear 3 month plan that I could follow right up till the day I wrote. It was a plan that required a lot of work but one that was also flexible which was great for me a my job has irregular and often long hours.

The video lessons are really helpful and explain every aspects of a section in detail. At times it goes too much into the basics so its advisable to use your discretion about which videos you watch.

The best part of Magoosh is the question bank. Its got a good variety of questions of all levels on both the quant and verbal side. (although I would say the very hard questions were much harder than anything I experienced in the test). I appreciated the detailed answer analysis as well for each question, which went beyond a simple text explanation and actually had a video for every question and made it easier to understand the really difficult questions.

I used Magoosh in conjunction with another product but after a few weeks, I focused on Magoosh and am really happy that I did so.

This service was a game changer for me. I increased my score by 70 points from my first GMAT. I found the lessons were more specific and I was able to focus more time on those areas that I felt I needed extra practice. This allowed to target the areas that I need to improve on. After doing their list of problems, I felt their score estimator was quite accurate. The only downside I found was the rather monotonous voice that reads each of the lessons. It was very scripted and I would have to take breaks just to maintain my focus.

I purchased the Magoosh Premium program. I had heard from a friend that it was an essential study help and that it was extremely affordable. With that background I pulled the trigger and got started. I had less than two months to study (and my wife was pregnant, which didn't make things easier). I watched all of the Quantitative videos and did about 400 practice questions on Magoosh. When I took my first practice GMAT exam I scored a 590, with verbal in the 90th percentile and quant in the 30th percentile... I obviously needed to focus on the quantitative section. After my many hours of study, I ended up with a 46 on quant, which was amazing for me. My final score was a 690. I'm certain that I couldn't have done it without Magoosh.

arguably one of the best resource available in the market. It costs you 149$ but its worth every penny. Magoosh contains easy to understand video lessons covering every concept you encounter in real GMAT, the strategies are highly useful and with premium subscription of Magoosh gives you access to more than 1000 questions where each and every question is followed by a video explanation. In addition to all these, they have a fantastic email support by which you can clarify any of your doubts , they reply to you in less than 24 hours. Magoosh questions are of same toughness level as of real GMAT. Study schedules in Magoosh can be a lifesaver who were lost in preparation . I followed 90 day study plan verbal focussed , likewise there are other study plans which you can chose on your requirement. Magoosh Support is the best.

I had taken the Magoosh Premium Course to start my preparation for the GMAT test. It was referred to me by a friend who was able to get a 750 course using this series. Even though I got a score of only 640, the course was very helpful in making me understand the basic concepts. It was the right starting foundation which helped me in my further preparation. I complemented it with OG and Manhattan mocks. The videos were very helpful in helping me get my fundamentals clear. But the best part of Magoosh course are the online video explanations which keep the users engaged.

The Verbal videos of the product are really good. The verbal questions were also good, but not close to the official questions. The tagging of questions and videos is a good feature.

Coming to the Quant part, the videos have lot of detail. Some might feel that the videos are too lengthy. The questions are either easy or hard. There are few GMAT 700 level questions.

Overall, this is very good for the preparation. For questions, esp. Verbal, please don't go beyond the official questions.

Also, the study plan offered by Magoosh is really good (if you can follow the same).

Considering the Value for Money, I guess this is the best product out there.

I used Magoosh for practice in timed manner and am really satisfied with the program. The test setting is real and questions are of moderate level. Verbal questions are pretty close to real exam and are created with high quality explanation. I must say it is closer to test than Kaplan or Princeton Review. The notes section may ve not as useful as I thought but the explanation videos are very helpful. I find how Magoosh teachers read, underline and talk about the thoughts while solving questions particularly easy to understand and effective in helping me understand how to answer questions better.

Also big thanks to Magoosh staff who helped me to extend my subscription to study for exam!
