For the Physics Olympiads

Hey you knowledgable physics guys....what books are good for the Physics Plympiads? (the U.S. one)
bumpage wumpage
When I went for my Phy.Olympiad , I prepared from last year question papers just to get an idea of the type of questions.You should have a good theoretical reasoning base along with solving ability . A good physics background is necessary , like you should have a good hold over basic fundamentals of electromagnetism , mechanics , waves , oscillations , optics , G.Relativity , Fluids and Solids.
