    Surprisingly enough I didn't get much done, but mainly problem solving stuff including some olympiad problems (I solved an IMO problem for the first time in the process, which is nice but it was probably one that was considered easy).
    Oh also I covered M3.

    Yeah it's definitely fun stuff and I've improved a lot at problem solving .

    I looked up the problem and it was IMO 1995 Q2:

    Let a,b,c be positive real numbers such that abc=1.
    Prove that \dfrac{1}{a^3(b+c)}+\dfrac{1}{b^  3(c+a)}+\dfrac{1}{c^3(a+b)} \geq \dfrac{3}{2}.

    On my results page it says 'Results for this test are not available to you'?!?! I thought it was supposed to say they have not been published/released yet? Anyone else got this?
    It's more a less the same thing, they're not available to us as they haven't been released yet

    Ah. Very nice.
    I haven't tried it but my instant thoughts are prove singular terms then cycle or cauchy.

    Good luck to everyone in their results! I just saw this thread and had some brutal flashbacks to when I was waiting for mine to come out.

    Start with Siklos' booklets, and take your time with questions. Don't look at the solutions.
