Course Magoosh Premium

Location Online

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.

Test Day Experience

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

The GMAT center is located in the Sandton Office Towers, quite conveniently placed.

Upon entering the test center, the staff was polite and courteous and got me setup immediately. Everything was clean and well setup and the A/C was at the right temperature.

The only complaints I have are: The desks are all connected meaning if someone leans or bangs on their desk it also affects you which can get annoying. Additionally, some of the construction outside could be heard in the venue (not their fault) but this was only minor and didn't distract me with the noise cancelling headsets provided.

Overall a good experience and a comfortable enough venue to write such a long test
