Hi I'm new around here and want to take a shot at the Olympiad. I had a couple questions to settle before I order my books:
1) Should I use Klein's Organic Chem (full textbook) over the Second Language books? Will this give me any benefit over just the Second Language books? Or is it a waste of money really?
2) Anybody use Oxtoby's Principles for studying? I've heard it's a nice middle ground between Atkins and Zumdahl in terms of problems and content, but I just need some opinions from people who've done it before.
3) Do I have to buy any books before I take the local exam? Or can I study them earlier? Will this provide me any benefit? And do I need to worry about books for biochem, physical chem, etc?
Thanks to all you guys in advance for the help.
