AMC 10 Prep
I am a freshman and I took the AMC 10 for the first time last month. Before this school year, I had never done any contest math, but this year I joined my school's math team. I did pretty well on the ICTM regional test (34), but ended up doing very badly on the AMC 10-with little preparation. Since then, I have started Art of Problem Solving's Intro to Algebra B course, and done several practice contests. My scores have gone up slightly, usually around 75-90. I was wondering if it would be better to take the AOPS AMC 10 course, buy one of their books, or if there is a better alternative. I am aiming to get around 100-110 next year.2 replies
