Class Intro

Many Top Colleges require AMC scores as part of the college application. This is a Complete prep course for AMC10 and a partial prep course for AMC12. The course will close any gaps in knowledge required for the AMC10 exam, in addition to discussing test strategies for taking the exam. The focus is on approaches and methods via examples and exercises in the textbooks, in addition to working on exam problems from past years. The final exam will be a timed test, simulating an actual AMC10 exam.

Textbook: The Art of Problem Solving, Volume 1: The Basics. ISBN: 978-0-9773045-6-1
