Although it's an old book, it looks as if it were brand-new. A brand-new book costs twice as much as the old one, so I highly recommend this seller to the customers to save money.

Format: Paperback
As are all maths challenges from MAA, the problems in this book take a long time to solve for the average reader. It can be used for polishing up your skills or as extra projects.
