      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    Problem Primer For The Olympiad is a book that focuses on the preparations for the the Indian National Mathematical Olympiad and the Regional Mathematical Olympiad. Olympiad standard problem-sets aim to help readers practice for these examinations.

    Summary Of The Book

    Problem Primer For The Olympiad is aimed at students who are preparing for the Indian National Mathematical Olympiad and the Regional Mathematical Olympiad. The syllabus and framework of questions of these two examinations is very different from what is taught in school. Thus, this text is designed to assist students in preparing for the Olympiads.

    The book starts with a note addressed to the students by the authors. They advice their readers to use the Tool Kit section of the book, which has a collection of theorems to help students solve the problem sets. Such a section is usually not included in school textbooks. Next is a page which has a list of mathematical symbols used in the book. The book is divided into three parts, namely Problems, Toolkit and Solutions. The topics with these chapters are Number Theory, Algebra, Geometry, Combinatorics and Miscellaneous. The first part contains an extensive set of problems of Olympiad standard. The last pages of the book contain a section named Problems for Practice that contains mixed questions from different topics.

    Problem Primer For The Olympiad is an ideal book for aspirants of Indian National Mathematical Olympiad and the Regional Mathematical Olympiad to practicing and prepare for the exams.

    Good...But not for beginners!!!

    The book contains an excellent set of problems but they need to be practised only after you have done a lot of groundwork preparation for RMO. I made a mistake of buying this book first...just to later realise that the problems are of a very high level. So, as a beginner I purchased the book "Challenge and Thrill of Pre College Mathematics" from flipkart... and now I can easily tackle the problems of this book!!!
