GRE Live Classes vs. Self-Study: Which is right for me?

If you’ve been wondering “What GRE prep course is best?,” the choice will depend on three elements. These include your study style, your current GRE practice scores, and your schedule. GRE Live Classes are best for students who are motivated when surrounded by a strong support system. Meanwhile, a self-study plan is best for self-starters and for those with a packed schedule.

Take a look at what makes each plan unique.

Live Classes Self-Study Plan
  • Ideal for students who are more motivated to study when surrounded by fellow GRE students.
  • Great for students who need help with staying on track and need accountability partners.
  • Tailored to students who thrive in a structured learning environment.
  • Requires more time and resources.
  • A practical option especially for students with packed or unpredictable schedules.
  • Best for those focused and motivated despite the lack of accountability partners.
  • For students who study better when study times are flexible.
  • The more cost-effective option.

If you’re a flexible learner and can thrive in both programs, base your decision on your recent GRE test results. Magoosh’s GRE Live Classes are best for students who are scoring in the 25th-75th percentile. In fact, the program guarantees at least a +5 score improvement. If you’re currently scoring in the upper or lower 10th percentile, you can always try the self-study plan. Of course, if you need continuous momentum and support, then GRE Live Classes may be right for you!
