How did Magoosh help you?
I am a big fan of Magoosh! The platform provides near actual simulation of standardized test questions. Earlier I also took Magoosh subscription for GRE, so I can vouch for quality of its content and the support it provides. The TOEFL subscription didn't disappoint me either. Icing on cake is the Magoosh TOEFL speaking app.

How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh TOEFL course was extremely helpful to me because it prepared me well for each and every question type from the actual test. The video lessons were informative, interesting and well made. I was able to customize my practice as well as take a full length test. I really liked that feature.

I had also made use of the free vocabulary and speaking apps. The speaking app was more helpful because I could practice speaking as required for the test. The vocabulary app helped me quickly refresh my memory with TOEFL words.

My previous score of 114 is from 2005 when I was a working professional. But given that I have been a stay at home mom for the last 10 years, I needed to brush up my test taking skills. Studying with Magoosh TOEFL (albeit just for 10 days ) is what made it possible for me to score 110 and I am very pleased about it. Thank you Magoosh Team.

Magoosh helped me in a short time to understand all questions so clearly that I knew where to find the most likely answer and avoid the trick answers. The practice material is perfect and was really helpful, the detailed explanation for each question made so easy to see my mistakes and how to fix them. Thank you Magoosh!

The practice sessions were extremely helpful. Especially the lessons on each section. I found the perfect guidance in Magoosh. The explanations for each question were helpful in understanding better, wherever I went wrong. Each practice made be better day by day. I was worried about the speaking and writing sections but the vast range of topics helped me improvise. Especially towards the end, when I needed extension by a few hours and instead got it for a whole week which gave me a little more time to go through the lessons and practice tests. Moreover, learning online made it convenient, so that I could practice even while traveling and not miss out.

I' m so grateful to the entire Magoosh team for this wonderful website that teaches everything you need to know about the TOEFL. Following the schedule really helped me to study adequately within the given time frame. Secondly, watching all the videos and doing the practice helped me to understand what kind of questions were going to appear in each section. It's very important to follow all the strategies taught in the videos. They were extremely helpful. Finally, it is also good to read widely on academic topics especially in areas that seem hard for you to grasp like psychology, art etc.

How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh helped me more than I could imagine. I learned a lot with the video lessons explaining exactly what we need to know to pass the exam and to be confident during the test day. The speaking lessons were particularly helpful to me since it was the most scary section of the Toefl in my opinion.
I needed an overall score of 95 to be able to study at the college I wanted and thanks to Magoosh and the books they recommended I scored 100 and it was way more than what I expected. I am really glad that I found Magoosh and I absolutely enjoyed studying with them.

Magoosh provided me with lots of practice tests that helped me a lot to prepare for the exam. Their exercises have the same level of complexity as the actual exam and prepared me such that i was able to improve my score by a number of 10, from 92 to 102. Moreover, the Toefl videos are also good to understand how to attempt every type of question. I strongly recommend Magoosh premium to everyone planning to take Toefl exam.

Magoosh provides great lessons and challenging questions that are very close to the actual test! The mobile apps helped me practice on the go. They respond to queries within a day and were even kind enough to give me a one week extension on my account.

The ETS TOEFL is exactly the same as the Magoosh practice tests!Magoosh provided me with the best and most affordable means of learning TOEFL.The TOEFL exam was a breeze for me after practising the Magoosh practice questions. Since I'm a working professional,I could spare hardly 1 hour daily but this meagre amount of time was enough for me to prepare well with the help of Magoosh study material.Thank you so much Magoosh :)

In every possible way!! :)
I had just 10 days to prepare for the TOEFL and following the Magoosh two-week study schedule was helpful. The video lessons on speaking and writing tasks provide excellent tips on how to structure ones response. Also, the tips and strategies for the reading and listening section (esp. taking notes) are extremely useful on test day.

I strongly believe that you need nothing but magoosh for Toefl.It has enough material to get you your desired score. I had only a month to prepare before my test. The video explanations and practice questions are enough to give you an idea what you would actually see in the test.

Awesome lessons and practice questions very similar to the real test.
