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.” Interested in hearing what your peers think about Magoosh GMAT Prep, read our Magoosh reviews below.

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 was just what i needed! Great way to brush up on math skills I haven’t had to think about in ten years without the cost or restrictive structure on some other in person classes. Have the online classes to work through at your own pace as well as flashcards I reviewed on the train.
    If you’re great at managing your own time this is the class for you.

    Magoosh is a great resource and a good supplemental program to really improve your GMAT scores. It’s pretty easy to burn through all of the official practice problems, so Magoosh will help you continue to build your GMAT skills.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Create a plan and stick to it. MBA admission is a marathon and the campaign is a lot of hard work, but I suggest creating a plan from start to finish throughout the MBA application process. This usually starts with GMAT study, essay outlines, recommendation gathering, etc. Make sure to touch on multiple areas that MBA admissions look for (leadership, teamwork, analytical abilities, etc.).

    Magoosh is a great program for anyone who is self driven and looking to study on their own schedule. I was already in school when I was studying for the GMAT so I needed flexibility in terms of when I could watch the videos and do practice questions. I really enjoyed the smartphone app, which made it easy for me to watch tutorials on my lunch break or even on the train. The website offers several study guides that you can personalize based on how much time you have before your test and what your weaknesses are. I also learned a lot from the video tutorials that thoroughly explain the reasoning behind the correct answers — much more thorough than the explanations in the standard GMAT guide.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Try to reveal something about your personal goals and priorities in your application essay so that it doesn't come off as a generic letter that anyone else could have written. Put in the time to earn a decent test score and be ready to explain any weaknesses that may come up.

    Loved Magoosh. After years away from math courses and practice, I needed a lot of help getting my quantitative score up. The Magoosh program broke out the question types, strategies, and concepts clearly, and provided me with tons of practice questions so I became comfortable with the material. I also appreciated that it’s a complete and structured study program — it definitely kept me on track. Plus, you can’t beat the price compared to other study programs out there.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Applying for an MBA is an intensive process. Do a lot of informational interviews to figure out what the right type of school is for you and to refine your message on why exactly you need an MBA. Schools want to see your short and long-term goals very clearly defined, even if those things change once you enroll. Film and time yourself answering behavioral interview questions so you have a powerful, concise answer ready for anything they could throw at you.

    I loved Magoosh – their online videos made complex topics extremely simple to understand, and fun to watch. Their study plans were effective and helped keep me motivated and on-track. This is a much better experience than simply going through the OG on your own, and you can do it at your own pace vs. signing up for an expensive class. I would not hesitate to use Magoosh again and would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for top-notch GMAT prep. I raised my GMAT score +30 points to break the 700-barrier with the help of Magoosh.

      Follow the study schedule they recommend. You have to be committed, but it is a great program. I loved the videos and test strategies they suggest.

        Magoosh is great for do it yourself applicants. The key to it are the explanations after you get a question wrong. Sometimes when just doing the Official GMAT books you have No clue why you were wrong. Magoosh explains Everything and this helps build a better base of uderstanding. Also compared to other test companies the price is a steal, can’t hurt to try this considering a lot of applications to programs are more expensive.

        • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: BootH/2017
        • Your MBA Application Advice*: Keep taking the gmat until you received the score you want. Admissions is not as hard as they make it seem and it is a holistic view but relax About it all and if YOU have the test score you want it makes you much more cOnfident in the interview.
