# Geometry - where to start. watch

1. So, my Geometry skills are really weak. Anyone want to give me pointers how to go about getting up to a much higher standard - talking BMO1/2 level.

Books/articles - whatever suggestions.

Thankyou
2. Just practise. There's not really anything you need to know for BMO past GCSE, it's just that it's a massive leap in difficulty. I vaguely remember some of Gardiner's books have these types of puzzles (and lots more) in...
3. I see. Thanks.
4. http://www.mathcomp.leeds.ac.uk/publications/ plane euclidean geometry theory and problems sounds good, especially since its published by the organisation which run the BMO - Im not sure about problem difficulty though, probably best to just sit down with some Geometry Problems from the BMO and the textbook and just use the book to guide you if you get stuck

Plane Euclidean Geometry by A Gardiner and CJ Bradley covers anything that you can expect to come up in BMO1/BMO2, in a formal manner (as opposed to just trying questions, although that is also a necessary activity, obviously).
6. Ah, thank you both. Cheers for the link too

that should me enough for BMO2 and probably quite a few IMO problems.

All I can think of for now

BMO1 geometry problems are usually quite nice so practice is all that is needed for them
