Honest Review for Magoosh

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

Improvement N/A

Course Magoosh Premium

Location Online

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!

Recommended - Pearson High Holborn

I was taking my third GMAT in London, High Holborn. I took other two GMAT in two different locations, and I can say that this is the best place among three.

1. Easy to access and easy to find. I stayed in Hyde Park, and only need less than 30 minutes using underground. Just 5 minutes walking from exit Holborn Underground Station.
2. I think all of the Pearson staffs were polite and respectful, no big issue about it.
3. Because of the location, I could find many test-takers. I think I met with more than 10 test takers here. Pearson provides three separate rooms for all of us. Everything was perfect, no issue.

Overall, I was satisfied. I am taking my fourth GMAT again in this center. Wish me luck!
