Homework Help: Math competition question

  1. Mar 2, 2012 #1
    To start off with, my school has math competitions every semester, which unfortunately i missed the deadline to sign up. Anyways today I was looking at past comp tests questions and on average I was only able to answer 4-6 questions out of 20-23 questions which is saddening to me because I consider my self good in math, I am in calc 2 and average 98% on tests. Anyways my questions is, are there any books that can prepare me for math competition like questions??? I found some books on amazon which i posted below, are these books good for beginners? And are there any other books that anyone can recommend if not from the list of books that I listed below?
