What are the best books to use for preparing for the Physics Olympiad? I have University Physics and Fundamentals of Physics? Which one is better? Thank you!
I am also preparing for the Physics Olympiad, so thanks for all the advices.
By the way, how's Fundamentals of Physics? Is it a good book? Does it delve further into theory or is it mostly a problem solving book?
It has most of the theory you have to know. But IPhO contest questions are harder, of course. Some of the harder FOP questions are like easiest contest hard part questions. FOP covers first year univeristy physics and that's basicly what you need to know to get into IPhO.
Really bad. The results didn't come out yet, but I did really bad. Just hoping that I can go to the camp. But for Canada you have to do problem sets (Unless you get top 3) to go to the camp.
What grade are you in?
I guess what I'm trying to say is whether I can understand it without a calculus knowledge. I tried reading the Barron's Physics C study guide and I couldn't understand a thing.
hello . I'm new member . I am in grade 11 and read FOP unit 1-11 . I can solve national physics olympiad and FOP problems . but difficulty can solve irodovs . can you guid me that what should I do now and what else I have to know ? by the way , in my country , the first stage of exam is on febreury . thank you very much .
Hello everyone.I'm new here! and I do study for the Physics olympiad,too.I have finished all the chapters of FOP.and so I'm studying Classical Mechanic-Daniel Kleppner ,Jerry B. Marion and Electrodynamics-Grifits.But I wanted to ask where can I find national physics questions of USA and China(in english)? I really need them for practice.
