Best book to study for USAPhO?

    I'm using Halliday and Resnick, which is what a member of last year's physics team used. However, should I use something else to supplement this, or can I get semi-finalist status using this book alone?

    What's USAPhO? I'm guessing the Physics Olympiad. Which edition of Resnick and Halliday are you using? (Not that I know the answer to your question, but you might want to clarify in order to get more useful answers.) It's been a couple decades since freshman physics, but I do remember that the difficulty of problems differered quite a bit between the "Physics" and "Fundamentals of Physics" versions of R&H.

    Yeah I have fundamentals of physics, the fifth edition. I hear the new test is called "F = ma." does this mean that it is all mechanics?
