Hey! A bit of context, I'm a rising senior, interested in trying the USAPhO. It would be my first year trying Olympiad Physics, and I'm wondering what resources are good for preparation. I'm pretty fond of physics, and I'm willing to give it a shot. Outside of the AP Physics 1, 2, and C exams, is there anything else I should be aware of? Thanks!

    The first step is qualifying for the USAPho through the f=ma. The f=ma is only mechanics based which means that you only need to know AP Physics 1. However, the problems are pretty difficult so you need to practice many textbook problems from books like Giancoli.
