How did Magoosh help you?
First of all the amazing lectures introduced me to the format and type of questions expected in TOEFL, with various tips and tricks to handle them. What to do and what not to, everything was conveyed in the lectures. On top of that, the vast set of questions (with explanations) were immensely helpful in improving my ability to tackle the exam questions.

The Magoosh TOEFL Premium helped me a great deal gaining confidence and prepare effectively and smartly for my test. The lessons and practice tests are very well designed. Lucas made the entire learning experience a great one. Id strongly recommend Magoosh to everyone.
Lastly, Id like to say that learning with Magoosh feels very different, the constant support, the daily emails, the fostering environment that is created in all lessons, it all made me feel very comfortable with online learning (unlike standard online courses otherwise). Thank you, Magoosh! Cheers :)

It helped me get ready for the exam's particular structure which I believe is the most important thing to do if you already have a high level of english.

I found Magoosh extremely helpful. It was not just the practice questions or the pattern of paper in which Magoosh helped me, but also the simple techniques discussed in the videos. I only had two weeks to prepare for TOEFL after my GRE and I could efficiently utilise my time by relying on Magoosh material completely(Din't even check out the official TOEFL guide)!

Thanks you, Lucas!

It helped me quite a bit during the reading section because I knew what kind of questions to expect. And the reading section is one of the toughest on the TOEFL. It helped me gain confidence, the practice material is quite relevant to the one seen on the TOEFL.

I must begin by saying that you guys are awesome! The most important and constructive characteristic of Magoosh is its cordial atmosphere, which is certainly conducive to better learning and building confidence. Also, you guys reply to all questions and emails very quickly and with a genial tone, this made me feel important and good.

Regarding the videos, I must say that they are indisputably efficacious. You guys are very thorough. Not only have your tactics proven highly effective to me but your method of teaching helped embed the lessons into my memory.

However, the key to success is drill, drill, drill! And there were more than enough questions and exercises to go through! Moreover, the questions were almost identical to actual TOEFL questions in regard to difficulty, structure and types of content. (Actually the TOEFL was a bit easier!)


You guys rock!

I purchased Magoosh's TOEFL practice tests just a few weeks before my actual test. The tools created by Magoosh are excellent in terms of their visual similarity with the actual test. Interestingly, the detailed solutions of all questions from the Reading and Listening sections gives an insight into why an option was NOT the answer in addition to the correct choice. That in my opinion is excellent to narrow down your possible answers for a question and helps you solve the test faster.

Magoosh helped me to know the test, at the initial time when I was preparing for the test I was scared of taking the test because though I knew what to do I didn't know how to do it. Magoosh taught me how to take the test and that boosted my confidence level. So during test day I answered my questions confidently and was able to get a good score.
In addition Magoosh tutord were always there to help and listen, I mean those guys almost have answers to all your questions and their answers were so helpful. Thanks Magoosh wouldn't have gotten this far without you also being involved. Now I can confidently continue my applications. :-))

It was my first time with the TOEFL and Magoosh certainly aided me a lot. When I took the exam I knew what to expect in each section, so I didn't waste time trying to understand the topics. I had my weakest point at speaking, and the exercises proposed were quite helpful, even when I practiced just alone. I needed 79 as minimum score, and I put myself the aim of a 100. I was pretty close to my goal, but it was mainly for some distractions at the reading section, and at the listening of the integrated writing. So, I am really pleased with my score!! Thank you, Magoosh!!

Lessons and practice tests by Magoosh helped me feel confident and relaxed on the day of the test. Videos by Magoosh clearly describe the pattern of the questions. Thus, I got no surprises on the day of the test. Magoosh also assisted me to limit the time I am taking for each question into a 'safe zone' so managing the time on the test day became easier.

I was able to actually improve my communication skills, and question attempting strategy was good, and it helped me a lot during the exams.

Earlier, I had given IELTS got 6.5 bands. (By studying in a local coaching center)
So I though about giving TOEFL, this time with Magoosh, got 107/120, I am really happy!:)

I had really less time to prepare so I took my the 1-month plan and after that also I studied for only 2 weeks. Still, Magoosh was so accurate in their description of the test pattern and question strategies that I never felt I was lagging behind. The practice questions are really good almost same as those in the real exam. The blogs and help features are also quite convenient.

Magoosh was really helpful in many ways. Firstly I dint have to go for classroom training and could study whenever I had time, through your online videos. Besides that, the standard of questions in the practise is on par with actual TOEFL. That helped me a lot. I also used barron's and ets Toefl guides while preparing and felt that material to be very easy compared to Magoosh's. But the actual TOEFL was not so easy and I am glad I took Magoosh. The video lessons helped me understand various kinds of questions on toefl. I am thankful for your services.

As the practice material on the portal was at par with the actual TOEFL test material, it helped me in getting well acquainted with not just the type and variety of questions but also the test pattern. The video lectures helped me in building a strong foundation for each of the section and the video/audio explanations facilitated in building confidence, especially with the 'listening' and 'speaking' section of the test. I also referred the flashcards to brush up my vocabulary for the test.

I strongly recommend Magoosh to test-takers, because I used it to prepare for both GRE and TOEFL. The lectures give you a very clear strategy to tackle each kind of question, and the practice material makes you quite familiar with what you'll see on the test. I scored 118 in the TOEFL, and 328 in the GRE by preparing from Magoosh alone.

Magoosh was immensely useful for me in clearing the TOEFL in the first attempt. The videos are very informative, yet convenient to listen and understand. Even more important are the practice questions in the reading and writing sections where you can get an idea of your speed and accuracy. I would recommend Magoosh to anyone attempting to conquer the TOEFL.
