I came across Magoosh after reading some of the forum reviews. I had been contemplating writing my GMAT for a long, long time and wanted to join a course. Magoosh came as a great relief with just a small pinch to the pocket. I have completed all the courses and the GMAT tests provided by Magoosh. The videos are just awesome. All the concepts are explained exceptionally well. The tests are good and anyone who are looking for crossing the 700 GMAT score should look no further. This is the best course available.
Finally, the team is really exceptional. Both Bhavin and Rachel have been great in answering all my questions and have been really helpful.

Pros
- great value
- ideal for self-studying
- 800+ questions segmented by difficulty and topic make it easy to focus on your weakness.
- great statistics based on your answers, easy to identify where to focus.
- lessons covering all possible topics
- mobile app (great to watch classes in the gym or in the bus)
- questions are slightly harder than the official gmat, which is good for training

Cons
- Score prediction has a very wide range and still missed my score on both quant and verbal
- No IR or AWA questions (just lessons)
- No practice exam

For those of us who like to learn at our own pace, Magoosh is PERFECT. I was debating on Magoosh and signing up for a much more expensive GMAT course, but I hated that I couldn't personalize the way I spent my time in the full courses (and we all know how important time is when preparing for the GMAT's!) I was able to look at just video topics that I needed, and in my case, that was just mostly the quant section videos. I love how you can customize your practice sets and there are SO many of them too. Each practice set question has a video explaining the answer and that was really helpful too. I had the mobile app as well for watching videos on my phone, etc. Overall, and excellent cost-effective method to study for those who want a personalized curriculum!

I signed up for Magoosh after reading about it on this very website. For 99 dollars, I got access to all the videos and practice questions. Going by the rate, this deal was a steal!

Coming to the content, I think Magoosh's practice questions are perfect. They reflect the actual GMAT exam content.

The Quant videos are bang on. They've managed to cover almost everything. The videos are short, minimal in nature and very easy to understand.

Their Verbal videos are great too, but I feel they should work more on the Critical Reasoning section. It is one of the most difficult parts of the GMAT, and students could do a lot more with explanations of that topic.

In addition to all this, their blog is a treat for all GMAT students. Study Plans, book reviews, tips and tricks. You name it, and they have it.

All in all, a great product. Be rest assured, I'm going to be recommending this to anyone I come across who needs help with preparation for the GMAT.

I tried the free trial of Magoosh when I joined the GMAT Club in preparation of my upcoming GMAT exam. I found the videos extremely helpful, short and sweet, each one about 10 minutes in length. The lessons are laid out very logically and the flow is easy to follow. Quizzes are at the ends of the groups of lessons and are a great way to gauge how much information you are absorbing. I particularly like the ability to take notes in each of the lessons, practice lots of varied questions, complete flash cards (great app for your phone is available), and log onto Magoosh from anywhere and it is all saved. I'd recommend using this software to help review major topics, practice questions and get 2 more practice exams.

Also, Magoosh is great with asking for feedback and responding to it. I was having some trouble and emailed them, got a response back on a Sunday!

I am based in a Southeast Asian country. When I started my MBA journey last year, I could not find an affordable and reliable GMAT prep course, so I decided to study by myself. I practiced using the 700-800 level questions listed in GMAT Club Forum, I printed them out and practiced whenever I have free time . It was all ok until I found it hard to do practice questions and check the correct answer and explanation with this method. Some of the answer key did not even have explanation. So I decided to find another source.

After comparing reviews and prices, I finally chose Magoosh. For $99 a year, I think this is very economical. I only used my account for 2 months, but then I could let my friends use my account after I was done with my test.

I love that you can choose the difficulty of your practice questions. I tried to only do hard and very hard questions to push myself. I always checked for the solution and explanation whenever I got something wrong. They are doing a very good job in their explanation videos.
The video lessons are very succinct and clear. I like the way they divide the lesson topic and make each video so short.
I watched 2-3 videos in the morning, 1-2 during lunch, 2-3 before bed. I learned a lot by doing this yet it did not feel overwhelming.
The site also worked well on my smartphone, so I could do my practice using my phone anytime and any where I have free time.

I have improved from 590 to 740 in 2 months. I believe that there were also other things that helped me to get there, but Magoosh was definitely one of the most influential factors.

Magoosh is a great way to review GMAT material on-the-go or under-the-radar while at work. The platform lends itself well to putting 10 minutes aside and doing 5 questions in the middle of the workday. I can't think of any other platforms where one is able to do this so it's a no-brainer to sign up. It's also very inexpensive compared to other products. The instructional videos that they offer are also quite helpful though I wouldn't depend on them exclusively. Magoosh is best used as a supplement to Manhattan GMAT (the most thorough prep available in my opinion).

My only complaint about Magoosh is that their higher level quant is not very difficult. They could used more questions in the 720+ range. Otherwise I highly recommend signing up for Magoosh.

I am writing this review for Magoosh. Have been using it to get myself on track in Verbal. The difficulty rating with the explanations provided is really amazing. Their 'Very Hard' questions need definitely eye for detail and helps you develop that instinct to answer the tough GMAT questions. The timer and customizable practice quizzes helps one develop accuracy with speed. Admist all the work and loss of questions, I definitely look to Magoosh to keep me engaged and on track in Verbal and Quant sections. Nonetheless, having said all the cherry stuff, I do believe that Magoosh can make the Quant section a bit tougher. I have tried other company's questions for Maths and they seemed more tougher and tuned to Gmatprep practices tests. Nevertheless, this is certainly a must have for all GMAT takers.

I don't think you can beat this course, especially for the price! My package came with both the Verbal and Quant.

My top 2 favorite things are:

1) Video lessons: I was able to speed up, skip, and replay lessons. The videos were quick and to the point (MGMAT videos are extremely long and winded) and greatly helped in my preparation.

2) Question bank: I love that Magoosh has their own set of questions (all web based) and that the questions provide instant feedback. Each question has a video answer, which are amazing!

I personally used Magoosh as my main form of study and used MGMAT as a supplement. I had ~30 days to study and Magoosh was great for that timeframe.

I would highly recommend Magoosh to anyone, especially for those who are just starting out and even more so for those who do not do well just learning by reading a book. It is probably not best for those looking to score a 720+.

The video lessons are helpful specially for sentence correction. examples are similar to GMAT ones so exposure is always useful. I improved my timing whenever i compared with others.
I can create my own notes for the video so i can go back any time i want. Magoosh also has an app so it helped too.

Magoosh is playing an important role in my GMAT preparation, so I would recommend this course. I did not use quant app much yet since i am good at quant, however i heard that quant is also useful. For non native speakers, it is really useful and it is not that expensive also.
