For the reading section, the skimming strategy helped me immensely save time and get the perfect score. The speaking and writing lessons were also valuable to structure my response and obtain a good score.

Since I have never took TOEFL before, Magoosh really helped with the introduction and tips and trick. The courses were organized in a very step by step way hence very easy to understand. The explanation is also very clear. I'm very thankful for Magoosh because it helped me prepare in a very convenient way yet successfully improve my knowledge for TOEFL.

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.

First of all, I learned English by watching TV Shows with English subtitles (in Romania) and speaking with my Kurdish partner. I had no clue about grammar and how to write an (5 paragraph) essay. I went through all the grammar videos. Second, I used the cards to expand my vocabulary. It was great.

How did Magoosh help you?
The speaking&writing lessons were really helpful. Before the test I thought speaking would be my weakness, but it turns out that it is the opposite. I didn't really have enough time for preparation with school work and other stuff, so I only had time at night or between classes. Private tutors and institutions were never my option due to my tight schedule. I was really miserable because I didn't know what to do with Toefl until I met Magoosh.
I downloaded Magoosh speaking app to practice my speaking part and it was amazing! Even though I didn't have private tutor to correct my answer every single time, I got a good score after all. When I was preparing for ilets 2 months ago, I paid over 1k RMB for this British teacher to help me with my ilets speaking part, but I only got a 6.5 on speaking eventually.
Thank god I had Magoosh! Although it's not a top-notch score and I think I could do better, it is enough for me to apply for graduate schools.
