How to prepare for AMC12/AIME/USAMO

Hey everyone, I may be in the wrong forum..haha

I am planning to take AMC 12 and at least qualify for AIME. What I am concerning is that this is my first time taking AMC 12. I did not even know AMC has been existing until I came College Confidential.

When I tried to solve past AMC 12 problems, honestly, I could not solve any. I am trying to start from very very basic from now on. So can you guys advise me what to do? Whats the best book for beginner? Also, share how to study effectively!

Thank you guys in advance :D

    Get the Art of Problem Solving books (both volumes) and work through them. Also take the previous tests under timed conditions and rework the problems you didn't get the first time around.

    Good advice from @elf4eva. You can find the past tests on the AoPS (www.artofproblemsolving.com) website under the AoPSWiki.
