After every lessons, they take 5 questions Quiz to brush up our concepts. That’s one of the awesome feature of Magoosh. You can practice on real GRE type questions after learning the theory.

Magoosh has special section dedicated to build your vocabulary. There are different sections as per the difficulty of the words. It has about 1000 GRE common words. They explain each and every word with the proper meaning and an example on how to use it in sentence (this helps in Sentence Equivalence in Verbal section of the GRE).

Individual sections(Verbal or Quantitative) costs 79$. The Premium plan includes Verbal and Quantitative which costs mere 99$.(If you buy from this link). Even there’s 30 day plan if you can’t afford 99$.

Final Review: 

Magoosh GRE has special Blog which is really helpful in every way. They provides tips for Vocabulary, Quantitative, Verbal and more. Well at last I would like to conclude that Magoosh GRE is really worth buying and its value for money.  They clear each and every concepts very well. If you aren’t satisfied with Magoosh, they provide 7 – Day Money guarantee. I would strongly recommend all to buy Magoosh who really want to score good in GRE.  :)

Rating:

Everything seems really good with the Magoosh GRE App. 9.5/10 for Magoosh. The 0.5 I deducted is for the AWA as they don’t evaluate AWA section. I’ve bought the premium plan and I’m really happy with Magoosh. Instead of spending Rs. 20-25K in coaching classes its really worth spending Rs. 6K for Magoosh.

    1. 30 days are enough. Make sure you buy your subscription from the magoosh link on the Banner at the top! All the best :)

    2. I took subscription for a month, premium version, i would strongly recommend magoosh. With good dedication you can easily complete it in a month and it is very helpful. Go for it. :)

  2. Sir,
    . I have my GRE in 50 days& i was using Princeton review for my prep.i feel that its ridiculously easy when compared with ETS’s material. So i am planning to buy magoosh premium. Can i stuff in the 90 days study plan in 45 days? Or should i go with 30 day plan?
    Ps: I am good at Quants but verbal is a daunting task for me & i am scoring in the range of 305-315 in Princeton review’s practice tests.

  3. I will be taking the GRE for the first time and wondering which program I should do, would 30-day be enough?
