I never heard of the AMC tests until my junior year in high school. I was taking calculus and my teacher told me to take it. On the AMC-12 I got 105.5, but on the AIME I scored a 1.
I'm a senior now, and I would really like to do well on those tests, especially on the AIME.. How do you prepare for these tests??
Is it possible from now until the two tests to get 120+ on the AMC-12 and 5+ on the AIME?
I would appreciate any help and advice from any past AMC and AIME takers. Thanks.

Old tests are the best preparation. Calculus wont help you. Working fast and recognizing a style of problem is what will get your AMC score up. Be careful about stupid mistakes and a 120-130 is very attainable.
The AIME takes intuition. I have found that performance realy depends on how a test suits an individual. The week before last year's AIME I scored an 11 on a past test. I only got 7 on the real thing. I didnt get psyched out or anything, the problems just didnt come to me as quickly

Are there books that can prepare you for AIME? Any input from past AIME takers?
