Does anyone's school offer these types of classes? I've heard they are very helpful on the exams. My friend at Illinois Mathematics & Science Academy says this class helped him a lot on the AIME, boosting his score from 4 to 9.

A few colleges have problem solving classes that prepare students for the Putnam. I haven't heard of AIME/USAMO classes, but if my school had them, I'd be the first one signed up.
But in short, no, my (public non-magnet) school doesn't offer them.

I don't think there are many schools that would offer a problem solving class, but you can take one on your own. Go to www.artofproblemsolving.com

At MOSP last summer someone from IMSA (Illinois Math and Science Academy) told me that they might begin offering an "Olympiad Math" course. I don't imagine more than the five or six big math schools (IMSA, TJ, AAST, Exeter, etc.) would have enough high caliber kids to offer such a class though.

Do you think these are helpful? Some problems I encountered on the AIME seemed to have needed obscure math tricks to solve them.

go to www.artofproblemsolving.com
You can sign up for internet courses, or buy the book (vol 2 plus soln book for AIME/USAMO)
