Brent Hanneson - BSc (math), BEd, MEd (math education)

Hello and welcome to my GMAT course. Here’s a brief summary of my GMAT experience:

  • 1992: became a high school math teacher
  • 2002: began teaching/tutoring the GMAT
  • 2007: created a GMAT courseware package that the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia uses in its own GMAT preparation courses and licenses to other schools
  • 2010: achieved an official GMAT score of 770
  • 2011: created the videos on this website
  • 2011 to present: updated videos to reflect changes to the GMAT, and I've responded to over 20,000 questions on two popular GMAT discussion forums (GMATClub.com and BeatTheGMAT.com)
  • Present: My YouTube channel has over 2.5 million views and more subscribers than any other GMAT prep company  

TLDR: Over the past 20 years, I’ve identified the obstacles that impede students’ progress, and I’ve discovered the GMAT-specific skills and strategies required to beat this challenging test.

I hope to share with you everything I’ve learned.  


This website isn’t the product of my efforts alone. In fact, I can only take credit for the instructional content. Several years ago, I was lucky enough to find an awesome programmer named Chris Charpentier who puts up with my wildly uninformed programming requests. On the design front, my wife is responsible for all things aesthetic, including the website’s layout, functionality and more (she’s also the world’s greatest mom).
