    Most of countries where Astronomy is not in High School Syllabus don't ask Astronomy Problems in their Pre-olympiad tests. If Astronomy is in your high School syllabus then ask your teacher about Resources. As a book Universe by Roger Freedman is good for Astronomy.but Astronomy is not learned through books especially for Olympiads where Observation & Experimantation is essentially Required.
