About Magoosh

Magoosh is a play on the Persian word “Magush,” which means “one who is highly-learned, wise and generous.” Magoosh’s team is self-described as being, “a bunch of education nerds who get super stoked about helping students achieve their academic dreams.”

Back in 2008, co-founders Pejman Pour-Moezzi and Vikram Shenoy first began working on the concept of Magoosh, as managing test preparations with crowdsourced questions and answers. Later in 2009, their focus shifted towards an expert-powered preparatory platform, rather than a people-propelled experience, and the company was officially launched.


Magoosh is an admissions prep company with an informative blog, offering a 7-day free trial and a variety of guarantees promising improved test scores and more efficient learning methods. They also have targeted study schedules that evaluate when it’s best for a particular student to begin studying and times dependent upon when you’re the most motivated. This information will guide the learner more effectively up through the day of testing.

    Magoosh GMAT prep online software was fantastic to help me study for the GMAT. They had an excellent selection of practice tests, questions, and videos to help you study. The test questions and practice tests i actually thought was more difficult than the actual test. Shown by my test score which was 70 points higher than where my practice tests came in. they would be a great choice for a well disciplined student who doesn’t need outside assistance to help study. Magoosh even extended my subscription after I waited to take the GMAT until the following year. Not bad for just $100.

    Magoosh is excellent! their study guides are great for planning out your gmat attack strategy and the online and mobile content are awesome tools to assist in executing this plan. I can sincerely say i would not have done as well on the gmat as i did without magoosh! I would suggest a strong determination to stick to the study guide that you select up front, and then committing the necessary time to that end. I would also suggest logging your progress as you go along to assess which types of questions give you the most problems in terms of both accuracy and time. I was very surprised about how much time played a factor in the test.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Admissions officers can very clearly see through any spin or insincere stories. your best shot at success is telling a sincere and compelling story for who you are, why you want, or dare i say need, your Mba, and finally why that school is best for you. This also requires that you do some serious soul-searching to find out what your story is and how best to communicate it.

    Magoosh had many many video lessons which was a good change of pace from studying a textbook. The video explanations for practice problems, along with suggested lesson videos was one of my favorite features. I did notice that some references were out of date, particularly those that referred to the OG book. I think that the flash card app could be more reactive to the persons answers rather than cycling my through the questions. The three month guide seemed grueling and I ended up veering from the suggested study schedule. Some sort of adjustable plan to fit your needs based on progress would have been awesome.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: My MBA application advice is to take the time to reflect on your journey so far and realize the puzzle pieces that have fallen in place to get you to where you are today and why you have chosen this specific path for tomorrow. Consider the job experience that you have to date. What did you like, what didn't you like? What aspects of your career have been challenging, easy, rewarding, boring? Also consider what type of people you tend to surround yourself with, as well as how your personality compares to those around you and those in your chosen career field. Through the application process and the writing of many essays, I realized how far I have come and that I am making the right decision for my future.

    I liked that it was available on my mobile device. The overall questions seemed easier than actual test.

    The videos used to explain each test question and cover the theory were very helpful. The bank of test questions was great! The score prediction instrument was pretty rudimentary. The practice tests were good but not as good as the official GMAC Tests. The flashcards were awesome for practicing on my daily commute to the work.

    I took the GMAT twice. The first time around I studied on my own only using the official guide. Second time around I used Magoosh. My overall score increased by 20 points which was a little disappointing. However I was very pleased with the increase in my integrated reasoning score.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Start your application and studying for the GMAT early! Ask those close to you to help keep you accountable and find study/application buddies. Being organized is key i.e., track deadlines and take into consideration review cycles by friends and family. Get many people to review your application. Friends who had recently applied for their MBA or Law school provided some of the best advice!
