How to improve problem solving skills at pre college level

  1. Aug 8, 2012 #1
    I am preparing for olympiads ( though not actually giving) . I am first doing a theory book and then after completing theory and being satisfied that I have understood any particular topic I go on to solve a problem book of the same topic. I have just planned to do progress in this way but I had doubts whether I will be successful or not. According to me, this is a fantastic plan but I don't want to take any risk .
    So, what I wanted to ask was Is this right way to improve , the problem solving abilities provided I work hard and solve at least 2-3 books related to every topic.
    I am willing to take any risk as long I am guaranteed to have good problem solving skills and in depth knowledge of the subject
    Hope my problem was clear to you all
