How did Magoosh help you?
I got to practice a lot and the level of questions were at par with the actual test. Also it was very easy to learn in a short period of time. The videos were very helpful. Only because of videos i could score more in integrated writing section. This is my first ever toefl exam and I could score 103 in my first try! Thank you for making this possible.

How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh helped me IMMENSELY. I was suggested Magoosh by someone who took the subscription for their TOEFL as well. I think the sheer amount of questions, tests, analysis for each question and the lecture videos helped a lot. I would recommend doing all the questions given (that's what I did) to really familiarise yourself with all sorts of questions that could come.

Magoosh videos cleared the concepts at the very basic level as I required. It helps u understand the format of the exam along with the numerous tricks which you could apply and gain a lot in exam...my perfect score in listening is all due to them...dat small thing which they said... Listen more note down less...may be it's a natural thing to some...but it really changed the way I approached the listening section and came out with a perfect score..!!

Magoosh was a great support to become familiar with the test and the tasks. I could deepen my understanding how the test works what made me more relaxed while the test.
However, the explanation videos were a great support. Especially in reading, they helped me to understand the questions and to figure out the right answers.

All in all, I am glad that I joined magoosh. My master degree depended on the TOEFL result and this platform was a great support to achieve this goal.
Thank you.

Magoosh helped me to practice TOEFL speaking and get used to its format. It gave me valuable strategies for essay writing. Of course Magoosh will not replace all the English practice you have to do daily, but it is a must have booster before the test.

I have never took the TOEFL before so Magoosh helped me to understand how the exam was, how the question were and how long time for every section I would have. But most importantly the material and videos turned out to be the best guidance I had because thanks to them I learned from my mistakes and improved myself gradually. When I took the actual exam I already knew the exam structure and what to expect from every section so it wasn't a surprise for me.

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.
