The best value GMAT prep available

Magoosh GMAT is definitely the best value in terms of GMAT prep material. You can definitely achieve 750+ with the material. There might be better alternatives out there, but there is absolutely no need. Magoosh is all you need. I had never took a GMAT exam and did not take any other courses. It only took me 6 weeks of study to get 770 on my first try. For full disclosure, I spent about 60% of my time using Magoosh, 30% of my time using 2018 OG and 10% of my time using MGMAT books.

I only had about a month to study for the GMAT. Starting out, I was rusty with my math since I had not taken any math course in years. Magoosh had a wide range of videos for simple and complex math. There are about 500 practice questions for math and reading. I cannot recommend this program enough.

Logican, progressive and delivers the results.

I'm 38 and studied for the GMAT at a later stage in life than I'd recommend.

This is noteworthy as the maths is approachable for people like me who are coming at this with a mixed level of knowledge. You can work at your own speed and the video lessons in particular are great if you've forgotten it all!

The aspect I'd recommend the most is the massive question bank with video explanations. This is great when you're just starting out and need to know the start points for your questions. Once you've worked through a reasonable number of these your provided some great data to fine tune your study time.

Using Magoosh, I surpassed my aim by 30 points 2 months ahead of schedule (I'd allowed 6). This is the strongest recommendation I can offer; it's thanks to Magoosh that I'll not be studying over Christmas for the GMAT!

The only non-OG resource I used and you'll ever need.

Magoosh is the only resource I used apart from the OGs. I followed their 1 month study schedule and managed a 710. The quant lessons were very detailed and I wasn't taken by surprise by any of the questions on the actual GMAT. All thanks to Mike and his pedagogy.

Flexible Prep for Disciplined Students!

  • Teacher:
  • Recommended forVerbal: No  Math: Yes
  • GMAT ScoresBefore: N/A After: 740

I used the online curriculum to prepare for the GMAT since my schedule requires me travel often and can change day to day. Obviously, in person classes weren't an option and this definitely worked better for me anyways! I didn't spend any time rehashing what I understood and focused instead on my areas of weakness. Not only did the program significantly improve my math skills, but also my verbal as well. Prior to test prep, I was scoring in the high 500/low 600 range. I worked pretty intensively (12 weeks at 2-3 hours a day, 6 days a week) and was able to achieve much higher than I anticipated!

Affordable and Comprehensive

Quality videos on Quant and Verbal. Really breaks down every concept you need to know - data sufficien you, geometry, probability, etc. Question bank is categorized by level - really helpful. Verbal has really good tips for critical reasoning.

Not to mention the package I purchased was so affordable, compared to other products from Kaplan, Veritas, etc.

So happy I went with Magoosh. Would recommend to everyone for self-study!

Magoosh has more than enough questions for you to practice. Each question has a written explanation AND a video explanation so 99% of the time, you'll receive the rationale behind the answer.

Definitely worth it for the price.

best source for 99 dollars, apt for students

  • Teacher:
  • Recommended forVerbal: No  Math: Yes
  • GMAT ScoresBefore: N/A After: 550

Magoosh is a good tool for GMAT aspirants, quant questions are very useful to students, In GMAT real exam I got some questions same as in magoosh quant. coming to verbal section this section is a quite different from math?s, It requires complete knowledge of English along with lots of patience to read passages. I felt magoosh passages are a bit lengthier than GMAT original exam.
Positives:
? Great flexibility to practice questions as we like,
? Magoosh score predictor is very accurate.
? Explanation of questions and their answers is very nice.
? Customer service is good, reply for doubts will be addressed soon.
? Magoosh YouTube videos like Tuesdays with Kevin are very useful.

Considerations: The only thing I feel wrong with Magoosh is the slow pace of English lessons.

user-friendly and perfect for working on your weaknesses

  • Recommended forVerbal: No  Math: Yes

I have been studying for GMAT for over six months with MGMAT and Magoosh materials. IMHO, MGMAT and Magoosh complement each other very well. MGMAT is an excellent resource to get up to speed on the content but once you cover the books/classes you are pretty much left only with OG questions to practise. While Magoosh's explanation may be inferior to MGMAT, it is by far the best resource for practising and improving your weak areas. Magoosh's interface easily allows you to select the topic and the level of difficulty. Each question is accompanied by a video as well as comparison of your timing to others. The latter function is very handy if you are concerned about your timing on certain questions (not all easy questions can be solved in 1 minute!). Overall, Magoosh is an excellent resource for practising, provided you have solid understanding of the content.

I am a working professional who have limited time to study. I like the online videoes which give me a lot of free time to arrange my own schedule. The lessons are short but to the point. I don't feel super pressured to prepare for this exam. I am relaxed but I learned.

The timers were essential!

The best part about GMAT was the timers! This test is easy if you have unlimited time, but Magoosh uniquely ensures you are disciplined with your time, which was critical to helping me obtain 720 on my first try. Everyone told me to spend way more than what I spent on Magoosh on an in-person test, but that was not necessary after using and thoroughly reviewing every question in the Magoosh test bank.

So clutch

  • Teacher:

  • GMAT ScoresBefore: 560 After: 710

Magoosh proved to be an extraordinary study resource that is unique because of the huge amount of practice questions it has with excellent explanations of the answers. My strategy was to focus on all the ones I got incorrect (especially for Quant) as many times as it took until the lessons behind all 500 math problems correct.

While some people may prefer classroom settings with instructors, Magoosh has the key advantage of offering short and concise video lessons that allow you to re-enforce challenging ideas as many times as needed.

Very targeted, helpful, and accessible approach to GMAT prep

  • Teacher:
  • Recommended forVerbal: No  Math: Yes
  • GMAT ScoresBefore: N/A After: 720

I really enjoyed Magoosh's style of GMAT prep. You can work your way through the lessons, set up short quizzes, or go problem by problem. The best parts are the explanation videos after every question and related lesson videos you can watch if you're really lost on a particular topic. The videos have practice questions in them to help you process the material, and Mike McGarry explains concepts in ways that pop into your head while you're working problems (happened several times while taking the GMAT!).

Mike really makes the lessons great, and the entire structure of the website is incredibly useful.

Great guide for studying

When I first took the GMAT, my studying was erratic and I didn't really know how to approach studying for the GMAT.

Magoosh's 30 day guide truly helped me focus my studying and enabled me to get a score I wasn't even shooting for! I highly recommend the 30 day guide because, although it's brutal, it will get you prepared.

Thanks Magoosh!

Magoosh Taught Me How to Improve My Quant Score

May 18, 2015
  • Teacher:
  • Recommended forVerbal: No  Math: Yes
  • GMAT ScoresBefore: N/A After: 620

The Magoosh Quant + IR preparation tools were so easy to use and understand. The online availability allowed me to study anywhere while frequently travelling without needing to haul study books and prep materials with me everywhere I went. This convenience was crucial in motivating me to regularly study. The video lessons were short but detailed and engaged me to learn the material in a more thorough way than I had been in just using prep books. My lessons page even kept track of lessons I had already viewed and ones that I had not, so I never had to guess what I had looked at already. It was also extremely useful to have the "Custom Practice" section where I could customize the number of practice questions I wanted in a session, with a defined difficulty level, time limits, and focused areas of study. This was all much easier than doing it manually using the study books. I definitely saw improvement in my Quant score and of my overall grasp of the math concepts by using Magoosh and I highly recommend it to everyone looking for an affordable, convenient, and thorough means with which to prepare for the GMAT.

I was pretty pleased with my verbal score on my first attempt at the GMAT (98th percentile), so I only purchased the quant package... The self-paced on demand format is ideal for a motivated test taker. I crushed the math problems every single day after work for 2 weeks. I did hundreds of them. I watched the videos and worked the problems again. The results speak for themselves... from 47th percentile on quant to 88th... from waitlisted to scholarship!!! Thank you.

After bombing the math section of the test, I bought the Math and IR package from Magoosh after a friend recommended it. I wasn't looking to spend a lot of money on extra study materials, and it seemed like a good price. What a difference it made! The videos are very informative and easy to follow, and very applicable to actual test questions. Additionally, the practice questions are very similar to actual test questions, quite possibly more difficult. I felt that the math videos and practice questions really helped me improve my score, and I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone needing to improve their own score!
