How did Magoosh help you?
Magoosh was beyond helpful during my preparation for the ACT! Magoosh provides a unique and user-friendly approach to test preparation, which allowed me to work on exactly what I needed help with. In addition to the many practice questions, tests, and lessons that helped me improve my scores, there were even online tutors who were readily available to answer my questions!

Magoosh has a user-friendly interface, and was very effective for me. The practice problems gave me an estimated score, which helped me know what subjects to focus on. The videos are clear and concise, focusing on both knowledge and strategy.

How did Magoosh help you?
I would say that Magoosh helped me the most in the English section and the Math section of the test. Although Magoosh helped me with the material itself, the aspect of Magoosh I like best is the pacing. Before using Magoosh, most errors I made were from rushing through the tests and forgetting all of the points I spent hours studying for. Most of my study sessions using paper books suffered from the flaw of me underestimating the time that I have and hastily answering questions on the English and Math section without thinking about my answers. Magoosh, however, remedied the situation with a clock that was built in and speed statistics. This helped me see how my times were being affected. Ultimately, this helped me slow down and answer the questions after some thought. This translated to me having a much better score on the actual test.

Magoosh really helped me improve my science section by giving me an approach to maximize my time and keep focus. Magoosh also taught me all the material I needed to ace the English section!! Cannot thank Magoosh enough for this!

Everything! but especially test-taking strategies for the science section and helping me cement my knowledge of trigonometry (my weak spot on past exams).

It was genuinely helpful, especially in math and science. I used the technique of focusing on the subjects that I didn't score too well in the first time. Some of the colleges I'm applying to Superscore. It brought my Superscore up to a 32. Thanks!!!

Magoosh provided me with strategies that I found useful to use on the ACT. If I had been able to spend more time on Magoosh and work on more content I strongly believe that my score would have gone up more.

How did Magoosh help you?
I needed to improve my science section from a 30 to at least a 32 for benchmarks needed at a particular school. I did it and went from a 30 to 34 Science! I exceeded my goal and upped my superscore to a 35. I was able to use the app and site to hammer the science section. I turned the corner after about 100 practice questions.

1) the difficulty given after the question was a really helpful subconscious trick that you guys added. I knew when I approached certain problems on the test that they were sort-of "poking their chests" to seem intimidating.
2) The videos of explanation really helped as well.
3) The reminders were a neat trick as well

My primary focus has been to increase my science score on the ACT as it was the score holding me back from breaking into the 30s. Magoosh was able to greatly help me with my science score, and it bumped up to a 31! Thank you!

It made my day getting my score back! :)

I will be recommending this to my friends and family, this program was beyond helpful!
