How To prepare For RMO/JSTSE?

Ok, I'll be going to FIITJEE from April onwards. I think they will prepare me for the RMO/JSTSE but I don't think that I will be able to crack it until I prepare for it Myself.

So, Anyone who can suggest some good books to refer?

For JSTSE, I think that the level for Mathematics is like the class 10 NCERT level. So that shouldn't be much of a problem. For the Science part, I would like some books to refer. For the RMO, So far I am not able to understand any question from the past years papers that I have seen. So some basics ?

I'm Presently doing the Class 10/Class 11 NCERT.

I do understand that many of you would like me to refer to Internet Sources but I can not sit on the computer for much time.

So, Kindly Suggest sources for these competitions OR please tell me the difficulty level of the Problems in these competitions so that I can get some good sources from my seniors.

Thanks to everyone!!

TopNewestWell , if you are practicing from Class 11 NCERT , make sure that you try out the Miscellaneous Questions . The rest is just too easy , so don't waste your time on Exercises .

Also don't try asking for a new set of books for each exam that you are going to appear . Try referring to a specific set of good books (on all subjects) and start to build your basics in all topics from now onwards!

And btw , you can always ask @Rajdeep Dhingra , @Krishna Ar , @Anik Mandal since they are in your age group . – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 1 year, 10 months ago

I am too aiming at the same thing and and believe me after doing a handful of problems from this book the questions of RMO seem too easy especially geometry and inequalities in algebra .I am talking about those because I have done only those.Log in to reply

I do not know much about the preparation of JSTSE but I can help you with RMO For Geometry follow

Plane TrigonometryandCo-ordinate Geometryby S. L. LoneyChallenge and Thrill of Pre-CollegeMathematics(The geometry part of the book is best according to me) by V. Krishnamurthy, C. R. Pranesachar, K. N. Ranganathan,and B. J. VenkatachalaFor Number Theory follow

Elementary Number Theoryby David BurtonFor Combinatorics follow

Principles and Techniquesin Combinatorics by Chen Chuan Chong ,Koh Khee MengAnd generally follow the book

Problem-Solving Strategiesby Arthur Engel And you can RMO papers as preparation . – Kalpok Guha · 1 year, 10 months agoLog in to reply
