Math Bible

Maths is not the most interesting subject the as it is not taught best way
But this book is goooooooooooood
For those who not satisfied with the current level of math in school you come on the right page

Good solid logical and rational approach towards math

and multiple sums for practice
They narrative resembles that of a story and the difficult increases gradually so you wont be overwhelmed

Good Book for High School Students

This is a really nice book for students, from Class 9 onwards, and for students keen on doing well in Competitive exams like Olympiads etc. Although it does not cover a major chunk of the + 2 syllabus, it has a good lot of problems and nice ones too. Not many books explain Number Theory the way this book as. It is a must buy for all students from Class 9 to Class 11.

Regarding Flipkart, punctual delivery and excellent service.

Very good book for Olympiad

Finally I edit my review.Its a real blinder.Very good book for Olympiads.The book has covered the most topics of any maths Olympiad book. Last time I told that one more book A Perfect Resource Book for Indian National Mathematics Olympiad is better. I have almost used both books. The Arihant book lacks Trigonometry which should have been included. I will advice every Rmo aspirant to buy both the books-This and the arihant one. Comparing both-Challenges and thrills emerges as the winner,
