I am taking the Euclid contest and I have to say, from what I've seen the last two numbers or so tend to be impossibly hard. I've looked at a few solutions and I will tell myself "I would have never thought of that in a million years." Anyway, this thread is for people taking the contest. Any suggestion for practice? I have purchased Problems Problems Problems vol 3 from Waterloo's website, but aside of that, I don't have much.

Don't you have a library nearby? There is a copy somewhere on the net in case you're in desperate need of it.

I know, I am writting the Euclid contest too and find it IMPOSSIBLY HARD. I find the two last questions in particular practically IMPOSSIBLE and the solutions take like TWO pages to write. Did you (werg 22) ever get to practice the April 2005 Euclid COntest?? Because if u did can u explain me the last question, i didnt even understand the solution.

Eeek... I wrote the Fermat this year, which I found much harder than Cayley. In fact, I got my worse score on it.

Euclid is going to be very different. First, I think I'm going to prepare. 2 1/2 hours for 10 questions... I guess we're getting into real math.
