Thank you.I knew it was obviously one of the factors,but got a bit confused with the way they stated it.

I guess you are right.But I see no reason for underestimating people here as well.Sorry, I just got drawn into a bit of discussion.Thanks a lot for helping me.:)

Indeed you are underestimating them.He(an American) is an IMO gold medalist and when he says he's done with Spivak, I think he is not lying.I am sure he knows what an actual proof is.I am already on that website..A successful career in pure mathematics is a logical conclusion to a strong performance at the IMO.But I am interested in the mathematical aspects of physics.

Thanks for the two books.However on a side note, people in our olympiad circuit do Spivak directly, which is not available here.(some of them).Is Spivak tougher than Courant?

comment Physics textbooks reference request
Thanks for the suggestion, but I am preparing for the mathematical olympiads and training at the highest level, so you could well understand that I am really motivated.(I doubt if Courant will be tough enough, but I will stick to it before I study Rudin.I do not seek some physics made easy books but rather those that will lay a solid foundation for serious research in Physics.I will keep the Feynman lectures in mind, but they are not really problem solving oriented, rather excellent reference resources .I request you to help me accordingly.

Thanks for the link!But most of the books are way above my level.I request for some further advice, especially which books to use as text(I do not need a watered-down text) and which to use for reference and of course, how to use the books so as to challenge myself thoroughly and to learn the topics comprehensively.
