Tell us about yourself

I am Avishek Hazra, Class 12th Student from St. Stephen's School. I recently qualified the Chennai Mathematical Institute, CMI Entrance Test. In addition, I cleared RMO in 2019.

I like new ideas and Math has a lot of them. Therefore, I like Math.

How did you prepare for the CMI?
My goal was learning new mathematics and developing my problem solving skills. So I learned new math and did more problems.

Can you suggest some resources (books, YouTube channels and websites) that had helped you in your preparation?

Mathematical Circles was a great book when I was just starting out. It was fun and the problems were doable.
Art and Craft of Problem Solving by Paul Zeitz. Another fun book.

PSS by Arthur Engel, the problem books by Titu Andreescu, and papers from various Mathematics Olympiads serve as a rich source of problems.

I used Bartle and Sherbert for the calculus part of the exam.

Learning new stuff in college and then going with what excites me the most.
