Hard precalculus problems

Post by AcidThinking » Sat Jun 30, 2012 11:46 am

So if your level is quite advanced, and you find the problems of precalculus in precalculus books to be really trivial, one do you do? Do you know a book or a place where one can find hard precalculus problems?

You can do problems from the PreCalculus Sections from any of Stewart's Calculus Books (in Essential Calculus, these are Sections 1.1-1.2 and portions of the Appendices). Also, going through Princeton's Review's examples and problems from the PreCalculus section might help. However, remember to study for other portions of the test as Calculus and Linear Alegbra (as well as the other topics: Abstract Algebra, etc.) make up a bigger portion of the test than PreCalculus.
