How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh helped me get a proper understanding of the TOEFL. The lessons and video explanations for every question helped me understand my mistakes. Also, a thorough vocab prep for the GRE meant I didn't have to worry too much about TOEFL. The mock tests are always a good indicator of where one stands, and the two mock tests I gave provided sufficient practice for the big day. I had a target score of 115, and I scored 112, so I'm quite happy with my result.

Magoosh provided me with great practice question banks for all tested skills in the TOEFL. The questions were very similar to those given in the real test so it surely helped me prepare my mentality and test-taking skills. Magoosh dashboard interface was very simple yet effective for studying and practicing purpose.

Magoosh is a great resource!
I have prepared for the TOEFL only with your lessons and vocabulary app. They are wonderful!
Actually I spent only 3 weeks on preparing for the exam but it was enough. Maybe I can perform better if I have more time. But now my results are good enough for my internship. Thanks a lot!

Magoosh helped me through the lesson videos. Thanks to those videos i could learn what was expected for me from each type of question. Also it helped me a lot to learn how to identify and avoid confusion from distractor answers.
The practice material was the most important part of my preparation because the most important thing that you can do to improve your scores is to practice.

I took the Local TOEFL but having the international TOEFL Course was extremely helpful as that is more difficult so having the less difficult exam would be easier, Magoosh was extremely helpful although I used it only 7 days before the test, the lessons, available tests and communication with the team was just amazing

How did Magoosh help you?
At first I didn't know what to expect from Magoosh and was a bit hesitant to purchase a study plan. Because it was very cheap, I decided to take a chance and good thing I did! it turned out that Magoosh was what I needed to significantly improve my score! One way that Magoosh helped me was by keeping me on track with studying. The one month study plan was dense and required a couple of hours of work per day, but it included a variety of exercises. In other words, having at least two sections to work on in a day was really important. I especially liked the usage of both official ETS book and Magoosh materials. Another thing I found very useful were the resources and lessons. I was working on the vocabulary cards and it was a wonderful idea! Besides, Magoosh's exercises were a pretty close match to the real TOEFL test, and learnt strategies helped me tremendously during the test. The reading section in particular was something I wanted to work on and improve and I was able to get a result that I needed. In general, Magoosh was a very positive surprise because it was cheap and offered valuable strategies and materials that helped me improve my TOEFL score.

Super helpful and insightful! Used all the reading and listening resources, I believe after studying all the Magoosh material I could confidently get >25 on my reading and listening sections. For the speaking and writing sections, I wasn’t able to fully capitalize all of the resources, due to time constraints, however, all things considered, I would definitely recommend Magoosh to all my friends that look for the best value for money TOEFL study materials. Great price, great flexibility, and great contents. Congrats to the Magoosh team for making self TOEFL online preparation sensible!

Magoosh really helped preparing efficiently for the TOEFL. I had around two weeks of preparation time and, with the help of the resources Magoosh provided, I was able to learn quicker and more efficiently than I could have done otherwise. Especially for the writing and speaking section, the way the video lectures provide tips and tricks is excellent and very effective. Without those videos I would not be able to score as high as I did now. The latter does not mean that Magoosh wasn't helpful for the other sections. The reading and listening practice questions are of the same level of difficulty as on the real TOEFL.
I would like to thank Magoosh for such an excellent platform. The next challenge is taking the GMAT, however, I believe that it will be a lot easier with Magoosh!

By taking the practice tests I became familiar with the structure of TOEFL, hence it was easier for me to deal with every question in a timely manner on the actual exam day. The reading and listening exercises given in the sample questions section of Magoosh are exceptionally good, and provide a good insight into what we can expect in TOEFL exams.

As a first-time IBT test taker, I find Magoosh is very helpful in equipping the students to ace the TOEFL.

Magoosh's video lessons are easy to understand. Magoosh also provides detailed explanations on how to answer the practice question in a most efficient way. I personally think that the practice questions provided in Magoosh are more difficult than the actual tests.

My target score was 100. If I've never equipped myself with Magoosh online course, I believe I wouldn't exceed my target score

I'll definitely recommend Magoosh to anyone who wants to take TOEFL. Terima kasih, Magoosh!^

Basically equipped me with knowledge and confidence to deal with every type of question I might face in actual exam.I think it's the most important aspect.The lessons are really important to study before going into practice even for someone with strong hold in English language.

Magoosh helped me to better understand how the TOEFL test was organized, and more important, showed me different strategies to tackle each part of the test.

Lucas videos lessons about each part of the test were very helpful, detailed, and well explained. He provides good examples that give test takers a good idea about what they are going to find in the real test. Grammar videos are also a good source of information about English language structure.

Although I couldn't use the Practice Test section as much as I would have liked to do it, its difficulty level was close enough to the real test level.

Finally, I also recommend the speaking and writing templates because you can learn useful phrases, expressions, and words to better develop and connect your ideas.

Reading videos and practices helped me learn how to pace myself. Flashcards helped me focus on those words we actually see and hear during the test. Even though I didn't have time to follow it completely (due to the very busy month at work), I liked the idea of having a set study schedule.

Magoosh provided precise information and tips for every type of question asked on the TOEFL, in an easily consumable and fun format. Even though I was not able to cover the huge repository of practice questions provided by Magoosh entirely, I was still able to utilize the effective strategies taught in the videos to confidently and correctly answer questions on the actual exam, that too in my first attempt.

I liked the practice material a lot. It helped me for everyday practice and improvement. Magoosh material is similar to test environment. So, each practice session resumbles a mini test. Cracking TOEFL requires lot of practice which would be achieved only by Magoosh.

Even their lessons make you to develop your skills in a unique way. Their lessons are designed in a way which will aid you to improve kills rather than mugging up some Templars.

Also their gramer lessons are best for brushing up your writing and speaking skills .
