    calculas book for olympiad level, there is no space for calculas in RMO to IMO syllabus and as given in status of IPhO you can't solve a problem using high/advance calculas. so just read textbook. and for further reading Problems in calculas of one variable by I A Maron it has theory,solved examples and problem.another book is A Problem book in mathematical analysis by G N Berman but it cotains only problems.If you want to go beyond yet then try thomas calculas.

    I would recommend Spivak, and for problems try REA problems solvers in calculus. If you are still in high-school and want just an overview about calculus then try the standard texts suxh as Stewart.
