If you are coaching a school team, I would recommend one of the recent MC competition books (e.g. 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013) instead. At $25 versus $17, they cost a bit more but contain all the actual Sprint (30), Target (8), Team (10) and Countdown (80) Round questions at Chapter, State and National levels (but only 25 National Countdown Qs), for a total of 329 questions plus their numerical answers. Also, you can run practice or mock competitions because you have entire rounds of questions (e.g. 10 Team Round Questions on two pages, reproduced exactly as they would be handed out in a competition).
But this book, "All-Time Greatest Mathcounts Problems" tries to select those most thought-provoking questions from State and National competitions and those requiring the greatest insight to solve quickly. And it provides a solution to each one. That makes it valuable for any mathlete preparing for State or National Competitions, those students at any level who are more advanced than their coach and very advanced home schoolers who want problem-solving challenges (instead of learn-a-procedure, practice-a-procedure, test-on-a-procedure style text books).
Extremely advanced 5th or 6th graders, advanced middle school math students, and any high school student or adult who is new to competitive math or who wishes to improve their problem-solving skills would be the target audience for this book.
One reviewer bought a copy for $100. Some sellers throw up books at ridiculous prices. In early 2014, this book is still in print at $17, new.
