Magoosh was a life saver especially because I was studying overseas and didn't have a lot of other options. As someone with no math background and out of college for about 4 years, Magoosh was fantastic in preparing me to take my test. They provide a lot of great tips for people who study differently or have different study plans (these are actually free tips on their website). Their videos + questions are broken down into different math parts, as well as English. The videos were clear and concise, very helpful, and helped boost my confidence about my math skills. They had a lot of prompts for the writing, and there's a tracker that makes note of your progress and how far you've come along. I used Magoosh 4 months prior to taking the test, and it bumped up my scores by a lot. I wish there were more practice tests available, but for 99 dollars, I'm not complaining.
I didn't do the best, and though my last practice test said I scored a 314, I feel that the GRE was far more difficult than any of the practice tests I've taken aside from Magoosh (even the ones offered by ETS). I was happy with my score and decided to not take it again because it was too painful, but it has nothing to do with Magoosh.
Magoosh also has a great vocabulary application for your phone so you can study vocab words on the go.
