Should Brilliant introduce books for IMO in points exchange !!!?

Well, I feel that Brilliant should introduce some books for IMO like "fun and thrills of pre - college mathematics, problem solving strategies etc. for the preparation of IMO and other maths olympiads. Well I feel it would be quite useful as there is not enough material online.

  • They give you great problems, you not satisfied.
  • They give you ability to discuss with your peers, you are not satisfied.
  • They give you lanyards and T-shirts free of cost( mind you, the shipping charges are quite high), you are not satisfied.
  • They give you classics like Flatland, you are not satisfied.
Now, you want a whole set of tangible stuff. Brilliant! (puns intended). What's next, dinner with Terry Tao?

If you really want to strive for IMO, stop day-dreaming and crack RMO. For RMO, being in level 3 of Brilliant is enough(if you have done the problems without help). Do past papers, that's enough. Problem Solving Strategies is very cheap. You can get it from Flipkart within Rs. 300.

You should've demanded such thing iff registration to Brilliant wasn't free of cost.

Peace.

Not even the hardest questions on level 5 would make it into the IMO (ok, maybe question 1, maybe).

Well there are a lot of e-books available free of cost. If the book you require is not available free of cost on the net try to get it from a friend who may have it. I myself have gained a lot from these type of exchanges.

I also agree with Siddharth, they must introduce some international olympiad- related books as "points exchange' rather than Indian math olympiad books because very few international olympiad books (especially of the american writers for AMCs and USAMO) are available in India and as they would be helpful for us to prepare better for the RMOs and INMOs.

No abhishek, i DIDN'T MEAN TO BE GREEDY OR SOMETHING! I m just saying that instead of T-shirts they should give something which can be useful in real life.
