I've used Josh Frost's "Practice Competitions" with my Mathcounts team and think they're an outstanding resource for kids who want to excel. The tests are very challenging and questions often require that kids know particular topics well. They're great for use in a team setting because coaches can look at what kids get wrong to figure out what material they don't know well enough. And they're great for kids who are trying to learn the material on their own because the tests come with complete, well-explained solutions.

As a 28 year veteran MATHCOUNTS coach I have seen many sets of great problems produced by many outstanding coaches over the years. I can tell you that I am truly excited by the Practice Competitions for MATHCOUNTS written by MATHCOUNTS coach Josh Frost. I have known Josh Frost for over 10 years and have found him to be one of the best coaches in the nation. My students like taking the "Frost Tests" as they call them. They know the problems will be interesting and challenging. I have seen,first hand,how Josh writes problems that have helped his students gain a deeper understanding into concepts and be better prepared for challenging problems on the same concepts. Josh has a gift. He understands the need to present problems that intrigue students, and is able to write these problems for all ability levels. His materials are a win-win for coaches and students alike.

Coach Frost has proven himself to be one of the most successful math coaches/educators in the country. Students, parents and teachers alike should be excited to take advantage of his experience and expertise through his book. Though the tests are designed to prepare students for MATHCOUNTS competition, the problems are well crafted and useful for any gifted math student looking to be challenged. Additionally, the solutions are designed to deepen students understanding through the demonstration of common MATHCOUNTS techniques.
