How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh was the only resource I used to begin with. Later I used the ETS guide and tests but Magoosh was my primary source throughout. From introducing TOEFL to me to preparing for the 4 sections, Magoosh was my companion and guide. The audio samples of answers for the Speaking section and the facility to record your answers and listen to them later, both were particularly useful - not only did I realise how to answer but also that it's ok if you cant always wind up on time before the beep.

I had only 3 days to prepare for my exam. I was nervous because it didn't seem enough. The only preparation I had had was going through magoosh's question bank. Turns out it was more than enough. I expected to score somewhere between 105-108 but got a 111 with perfect scores in reading and listening.

It helped me greatly with time management. Furthermore, a test like toefl doesn't measure only your english knowledge, but also your adequacy to the test format and Magoosh helped me to get used to this format. Finally, the video explanations were really helpfull and the texts and dialogues used in Magoosh's material were compatibe do the ones presented on TOEFL's test.

Magoosh has everything at one place. Gathering online reliable sources for TOEFL practice was a difficult challenge. I had 15 days for the exam and the "2-week schedule" was just the best thing I could get. Watching lectures played a crucial role in my preparation.
For people who already can communicate well in English, it is all about "learning the exam". Magoosh TOEFL lectures and practice questions concentrate on teaching the same. Study schedules, speaking/writing templates etc were a bonus.

Didn't really practice much but I gleaned over the content and format from intro videos plus a few questions.
I dare say to all aspirants that remembering the shortcuts and tricks Magoosh videos have can do you a lot of good especially the ones having less than a week left.
I didn't take any mock test and might have not tried more than 25 practice questions but I didn't follow each and every top I could salvage from selected videos.

Magoosh had plenty of practice materials which was a huge help and a time saver as I did not have to look for them elsewhere. The format of questions mirrored that of the actual GRE which was a really handy feature. The interface is inviting and user friendly.

Given the limited time I had to prepare for the test, MAGOOSH was the best decision I could have ever taken.The video lessons prepared me in the best way possible for the test.I was especially scared for the speaking section, but because of the strategies provided in the lessons as well as the wide variety of practise problems, I scored the highest in the very same speaking section obtaining a score of 29 out of 30.

Magoosh was a REAL lifesaver! I learnt a lot from the videos in such a short time. I already knew what to expect from each section before the exam. I especially loved the lessons on writing because they taught me how best to structure my essays. I am really happy I used Magoosh instead of enrolling in a tutorial center. Thank you Magoosh team!
