    Is anyone in a position to recommend (or otherwise not recommend) the book A Primer for Mathematics Competitions from Oxford University Press??

    yeah - it is not a good book for learning how to do and approach mathematical problems for contests and many of the exercises are quick and an alarming number are multiple choice. You will be wise to purchase (download for free, cough-cough) the art and craft of problem solving which is, imo , the kind of book that will set you up nicely to tackle BMO questions [except the geometry section could be more in depth].
