Are there any challenging math problems you guys recommend for test prep?

Hey friends. I'm practicing for the ACT/SAT, and I'm looking for some challenging math problems to work on. I've been sticking to standard practice problems, but I wanna test my skills further. Anyone have any recommendations for tough math problems that will test my abilities? Cheers!

Hey! It's great that you want to challenge yourself with tougher math problems. While the ACT/SAT math problems are not as difficult as some math competitions, it can be helpful to try solving problems from competitions like the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) or the MathCounts Competition Series. These contests have tough, multi-step problems that can help you think creatively and sharpen your problem-solving skills.

Moreover, you can also look into problems from the AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination) or ARML (American Regions Mathematics League). Keep in mind that these problems may be considerably more difficult than ACT/SAT problems, but solving a few can definitely stretch your abilities.

Additionally, don't forget to use resources like CollegeVine and Khan Academy for test-specific practice questions and strategies. Good luck, and keep pushing those math skills to the next level!
