I highly recommend the Art of Problem Solving curriculum found at http://artofproblemsolving.com.

I think almost everyone on Brilliant agrees with this.

Okey Sir, I have noticed they are very expensive, almost 60. I tried to look them in pdf version, but I didn't found them anywhere, do you know where can I find them? Thanks

Don't worry, they're expensive, but they're truly worth it because they lead you into olympiad-level problems when you do Volume 2. I haven't found PDFs either when I was looking for them, but hey, its illegal, and why cheat authors of perfectly good books.

One tip I have when using these books is to NOT skip over any of the intermediate proofs in the books, and take the material SLOWLY as you need to while doing ALL of the problems. If you fail to do any of these things you will miss the true teaching these books do. Also, try jumping around in the book rather than following it sequentially, i.e. doing different topics simultaneously across different chapters for a richer experience.

The next most logical step, I believe, in a problem solving series would be to try the Art and Craft of Problem Solving by Paul Zeitz. Someone back me up on this?

It is a great book, but deviously difficult. Also, a good share of it requires a thorough understanding of calculus.

I recommend Schaum's Outline Series Theory and Problems of Advanced Calculus by Murray R. Spiegel

I can only give the name of one book that I know: * 'Geometry Revisited' by HSM Coxeter & SI Greitzer *. Advice: start studying it after you have studied your geometry textbooks (from std-6 to the end of high school) or have finished studying most of their contents.
