I really enjoyed Magoosh. One of the things about the program itself that makes it so valuable is that each problem you do has a text explanation but also a video explanation. I did find their verbal section to be better than the quant section. You get access to a huge number of problems. If you are willing to take the time and go through each of their video lessons you will see yourself improving in areas you needed help with. As far as the dashboard I am no sure how accurate the score it shows there reflects considering my projected score for quant was way lower. I do believe using magoosh and their "study guide" gave me the increase in my score I was looking for.

Magoosh provided some of the best video explanations out there. I was able to go from a 610 to a 710 in 6 months (I am not a quant guy either) from this program. I supplemented it with EmpowerGMAT, which has a lot more tactics, but Magoosh was still my base for studying, reviewing, taking notes, etc.

In addition, their lessons are fantastic for those who want to start from square one and grow. If you have the time and capacity to stick to their provided schedule and really focus on learning from the ground up, Magoosh is going to treat you well.

I strongly recommend this service to anyone and encourage you to stick to a plan (1, 3, or 6 month).

The Magoosh GMAT Premium is the best course to build your basics.
Especially the Quant section helps you build the basics with the Video explanations instead of the dry written explanations. It is the most efficient Quant Prep courses available on Earth. I have tried almost 5 courses. Highly recommended to reach Q49 quickly. >Q49 needs proper timing and strategy that comes from giving a lot of Official Mocks and analysing them extensively.
Magoosh support team replies to your queries over the email that a lot of other courses don't.

Best way is to start building concepts with Magoosh Prep course and then move to only official material.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium

I bought Magoosh Premium subscription during the start of my preparation for GMAT as it was one of the cheapest options available in the GMAT test prep space. Magoosh can be a very good starting point as it really helps in building the basic during the initial stages of the prep. Now let me dive into the individual questions and provide a point of view on it.

Verbal section of Magoosh is not upto the mark specifically for the non-natives, cant really judge the course from the point of view of Natives. I would suggest non-natives to skip their verbal section.

Quants section is a great place to brush up your basic and practise low difficult questions. They have explained basic question of the foundation level in quite detail. It is one of the test perp company which comes very close to the GMAT level difficulty in Quants. But the platform lacks adequate amount of difficult questions. For quants one should supplement magoosh with gmatclub test and gmat perp question.

I used Magoosh Premium for achieving my GMAT score. I used it for building up my basic concept and as a main practice tool for both Quant and Verbal. Total I exercised not less than 587 practice questions.

Pros :
- All of the questions are explained by VIDEO. This is a HUGE plus point! I love to see the explanation from Brent and MikeMcGarry.
- MikeMcGarry explanation, especially on the Quant section really fascinating me. He explained the basic concept detailly and sometimes in not so common way. Big thanks to MikeMcGarry.
- Magoosh's customer service, undoubtedly, is the best, inseparable part of the course. Every single question was answered in a relatively short period and with crystal clear explanation. Big applause for this service!
- Magoosh whole environment : website and mobile apps are simple, efficient and easy to follow. For OCD person like me, this is a very good point.

Cons :
- To be honest, I relied heavily on this course, probably this was my mistake - especially when tackling SC questions. Overwhelmed with so many explanations in GMATClub Forum for SC (and sometimes contrast one another), I intensified my SC practice solely on Magoosh - and jumped on OG SC Questions 2 weeks before my first GMAT Test. I immediately felt that OG SC Questions two or three times harder! Magoosh SC's questions have their own pattern, sometimes too mechanical - I had to change totally my approach to SC. After this nightmare, I stopped working on Magoosh practice questions.

Recommended for :
- Anyone who loves to watch video explanation.
- Anyone who wants to brush up his basic skills - especially Quant.

Thank you Magoosh anyway!

Magoosh course is very helpful for score improvement.I took verbal online course on the e.gmat. It is very helpful in learning about every topic from basics.It helped me very well to improve my SC,CR sections especially SC.
I am very happy with your practice questions They are very helpful in improving my verbal accuracy especially sentence correction.
Verbal: Live Prep sessions on approaches for SC, CR and RC are really good. My accuracy in all the three improved from 40-50% to 80-90%. The prethinking strategy and understanding for SC helped to reduce my time taken in solving them

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.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium

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.

This review is for: Magoosh Premium

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.
