Magoosh GRE Reviews – Online GRE Test Prep Course

magoosh gre reviewToday, I’m excited do Magoosh GRE review – Online GRE Test prep course.

There are several GRE test prep software, but Magoosh GRE is very unique. As always, I don’t recommend a product unless it is of very high value. I saw that wow-factor with Magoosh GRE.

Above all it was founded by students at UC Berkley Business School.

Magoosh GRE Reviews

I created an account in Magoosh and took a test drive. I was very much impressed with

  • Interface simplicity (dashboard, review and practice)
  • Powerful features
  • Ability to create custom GRE study plan
  • Practice and Quiz mode
  • Select question difficult level ( adaptive, below 400 to above 700)

Webinar with Chris from Magoosh

I did a webinar with Chris from Magoosh GRE on GRE Test Prep Tips. You can listen to the Webinar audio.

Magoosh GRE vs Books

Using Magoosh GRE for test prep an interactive way of GRE test prep. For each question, there is a video explanation on how to solve the problem.  When someone is explaining how to solve a problem, its like having a personal tutor. Above all, there is text version as well as video explaining how the problem is solved.

  • Highlight of Magoosh GRE – It provides Quick Problem Solving strategies for each problem displayed in GRE math section. All of us have learned basic geometry, algebra, .. but there are so many short problem solving techniques that are available. After solving a problem right, when I saw the explanation, I realized, there is way to solve the same problem within few seconds, instead of minutes.
  • For GRE Verbal – Reading comprehension there is video explanation.  One of the most difficult part in GRE verbal is reading comprehension. You will learn how to tackle a passage (quick way to summarize the passage) and how to relate the questions to passage and solve them.
  • Target Score – You can set-up target score and also create customized test plan. If you are taking GRE practice tests using books, it will definitely take lot more of your time than online test prep.
  • Score Range Questions: You can practice questions in various score range. For instance you can select Verbal Antonyms – Difficulty Level 700+ or 550 to 700. This will create a customized study plan for you.

Simple interface, powerful features, questions were prepared by GRE test experts.

If you were to attend courses conducted by GRE experts you have to spend like few thousand dollars. But, Magoosh GRE is available to you for fraction of that cost.

    Hey HSB,

    Nice post about Magoosh. I have used Magoosh for my Gre preparation. Although, I came to know about it quite late but nevertheless it was worth it. As you pointed out, the main feature that makes Magoosh stands out is its video explanations. The main problem that I was having in all other existing preparation resources like Barron's book or others, was that for the unsolved exercises they only provided with little or no explanation, but with Magoosh I could get a detailed video explanation for most of the problems that really helped a lot in learning my mistakes and some new tricks as well. And also, it is very helpful to be able to do a practice session on the CAT pattern. In the analysis they also tell the difficulty level of each question and time taken to solve each question. All this really helps in calibrating the performance for the real test.

    I was lucky though, I got a free account because I had only 3 days left in my GRE, so they offered me a survey to take, and in return I got a free account. During the last 3 days I did around 200 questions on their site.

    Apart from that, HSB I wanted to ask you about University of Washington. My GRE score is 1380 and expecting a 100+ score in TOEFL. I have had an impressive academic record, with a large number of projects, achievements in programming competitions and certifications from IBM, the only thing I regret is that I have not published any papers. I know its a highly subjective question but still I am asking, what do you think about my chances of getting an admission in MS in the Computer Science dept. ? I want admission near Seattle as my sister and brother-in-law live there and UW is the best university in that area.

    • HSB on November 19, 2010 at 5:57 AM

      Thanks for your review. UW with your score is 50/50 but with strong application, you can give it a try.
