How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh was extremely helpful to me for building TOEFL skills, from skimming to taking notes I was able to overcome many obstacles.

The questions and tasks for each skill were almost identical to my actual TOEFL test. Especially, in reading and listening sections the topics were chosen with scrutiny. Funny thing, in my actual test, one of the reading paragraphs was about the same native tribe that I have also seen in my Magoosh reading tests. To be honest, I was really skeptical about the test format since it is online and you can't really highlight or cross over the texts and questions. But Magoosh provided me with all the help that I needed to get familiar with the TOEFL IBT format. The team was also ready for help, whenever I reached out. Even though I live on the other side of the world, I was able to get instant help. Stick with Magoosh and practice, you'll see how you can improve yourself.

For productive skills, though I was feeling more confident about writing, I was freaking about speaking. Because speaking to a computer always makes me nervous, as there is no actual human interaction. There is also the stress factor about how TOEFL doesn't give you a second chance to record your answer. So if you mess up, you're done. With Magoosh's speaking practice I was able to practice as many times as I want. At first, was insecure, but within the time I learned how to plan what I will say, and how to pace my own speech. Eventually, I scored 28 out of 30 in speaking.

Overall, in such a short time, Magoosh helped me to get more than my dream score. Just in about 20 days, with hard work and practicing through Magoosh I was able to pass my test with flying colors! I also must say that the tricks and tips given in the lessons not only help you to build your skills but also give you confidence and a positive state of mind which are essential for a high TOEFL score.

Thank you for everything dear Magoosh team! You guys are awesome!

Magoosh was extremely helpful in 3 specific aspects of my preparation: a good amount of questions to practice, feedback on my writing, and a wonderful selection of short videos that guide you throughout the idiosyncrasies of the exam. I needed a 90 for my master's application and got a 92! Thank you, Magoosh! I definitely recommend it, =)

Magoosh helped me a lot! The provided schedule gave me the chance to approach my preparation as structured as possible. I always knew what to study each day. That is great!
Moreover, the course helped me to eliminate mistakes I did over and over again during the prep. The course sharpens your mind on what you should focus on during listening and reading comprehension. I think that helped me the most in my exam.

How did Magoosh help you?
To be honest, I consider my English language skills to be quite advanced. However, my initial research suggested that one should not take TOEFL lightly as even the native English speakers sometimes fail to score beyond 100. Thus, in this regard, TOEFL greatly helped me in familiarizing with the test and the practice sessions were almost identical to the questions that I saw on the test day. I needed a score of at least 100 in order to apply for grad school. I scored 106 (beyond my expectations) and thus I am quite happy. Magoosh ALL THE WAY!

P.S. I ONLY prepared from Magoosh. I didn't even purchased any official guide.

I only studied six days and managed to get a high score with Magoosh videos. You should definitely use Magoosh's apps- especially the one for the speaking section- if you want a high score. I think it is the best resource to learn about TOEFL.

Magoosh was great for me in case of exam structure learning. The video lessons step by step helped me to thoroughly learn the exam required strategies. This significantly comes in handy when dealing with writing and speaking, which require a high level of knowledge over the exam structure and strategies in addition to general English knowledge and Magoosh greatly helped me in that way. The designed practice tests are also great and very close to the actual TOEFL test. Overall, I highly recommend Magoosh courses for every student seeking high scores.
