I didn't begin to develop much of an aptitude for mathematics until I was your age or a little bit older. I am in my sixties now and I find that many things are easier now that I can afford to be more patient with myself. This might work for you too.

Meanwhile, just try the problems. Don't worry if you can't do them. Even just by trying them you will find you are learning something. It's a kind of magic, I think. You can always go back again and again. Bill Bell · 2 years, 5 months ago

AVN have you read How To Solve It by George Polya? -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HowtoSolve_It - That might be helpful to you. Warren Cowley · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Warren Cowley I would endorse reading that book. It's on my shelf within about three feet of me now. Mind you, it's been about three decades since I looked at it. Anything about heuristics is a good idea for people who want to do mathematics or any other science. Bill Bell · 2 years, 4 months ago

@Avn Bha You dont need any books to enhance your aptitude skills. Daily life problems are more than enough. Praveen Kumar · 1 year, 6 months ago

You need to think about various approaches to problems and just try to solve more and more problems. Aabhas Mathur · 2 years, 10 months ago

@Avn Bha keep on solving more and more questions, without looking for solutions.(you can do that in many ways like copy down the problem and do later on so that you are not tempted to look for solutions in the adjacent tab before even solving the problem) Raven Herd · 2 years, 7 months ago
