Putnam, Maybe?

  1. Oct 16, 2005 #1
    I will be a freshmen next fall and am interested in taking the Putnam, even if I won't do very well. Can someone suggest a good book I can begin working out of now so I can prepare?

    the putnam is very difficult exam, the problems are very motivating for the motivated math enthuisists though. All the years can be found at kalva demon as well as on american math competition site.
