How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh was great for me in case of exam structure learning. The video lessons step by step helped me to thoroughly learn the exam required strategies. This significantly comes in handy when dealing with writing and speaking, which require a high level of knowledge over the exam structure and strategies in addition to general English knowledge and Magoosh greatly helped me in that way. The designed practice tests are also great and very close to the actual TOEFL test. Overall, I highly recommend Magoosh courses for every student seeking high scores.

How did Magoosh help you?
First of all, I learned English by watching TV Shows with English subtitles (in Romania) and speaking with my Kurdish partner. I had no clue about grammar and how to write an (5 paragraph) essay. I went through all the grammar videos. Second, I used the cards to expand my vocabulary. It was great.

How did Magoosh help you?
The speaking&writing lessons were really helpful. Before the test I thought speaking would be my weakness, but it turns out that it is the opposite. I didn't really have enough time for preparation with school work and other stuff, so I only had time at night or between classes. Private tutors and institutions were never my option due to my tight schedule. I was really miserable because I didn't know what to do with Toefl until I met Magoosh.
I downloaded Magoosh speaking app to practice my speaking part and it was amazing! Even though I didn't have private tutor to correct my answer every single time, I got a good score after all. When I was preparing for ilets 2 months ago, I paid over 1k RMB for this British teacher to help me with my ilets speaking part, but I only got a 6.5 on speaking eventually.
Thank god I had Magoosh! Although it's not a top-notch score and I think I could do better, it is enough for me to apply for graduate schools.

It helped me to get used to the overall TOEFL format. More importantly, Magoosh’s practice questions were simply excellent. If one wants to do well in TOEFL, he or she, in my personal opinion, must take advantage of Magoosh, especially its quality test-like questions, to the extent possible!!!

It helped me a lot because it’s tips whenever I wasn’t able to find the correct answer to a question or I did not have time to read the text in the Reading section. I just applied your advices.
Also, by practicing a lot, it made me more familiar with the toefl test.

How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh was instrumental in providing all the resources needed to excel in the TOEFL. The video lessons were coherent and easy to understand and recall. The practice questions followed by video explanations helped me to be more analytical at the same time guided me to apply strategies in a smart way. Writing and Speaking are my strengths and I wanted them to be highlighted in my score. On the other hand, Listening was a weak area for me as I was not able to understand the inference based questions but I did good in that section as well. Ofcourse, I could have garnered more points in the reading section if I had managed my time a bit well in the experimental passage. I am glad that I chose magoosh and would highly recommend to anyone who wants to score a good score in the TOEFL. :)

Magoosh helped me to quickly recap the format of the exam, I had 5-6 days for preparation. It was very comfortable to prepare with Magoosh, to go through tasks and then analyze them with right answers, trying to improve. It is a really great platform with tons of accumulated knowledge about TOEFL. I feel like I improved note-taking, at least for listening, and structuring the essay (I dont remember exactly previous writing score, but it was lower). Also Speaking is hard for me in life too, so Magoosh at least gave me confidence for what to expect and how to be prepared.

Magoosh's online was a complete guide to Toefl that I was. In just 4 weeks, I went from knowing nothing about TOEFL to getting the score I desired. I would not have been able to do this without magoosh. I would like to thank the entire magoosh team for creating such effective courses.
