@Hermit If you are already on AoPS then you shouldn't be asking these questions here. You'll get a much better response on AoPS than here. Good luck anyway.

@Hermit Spivak? Really? Spivak is considered as one of the toughest books in undergrad math. Spivak is obviously tougher than Courant. Spivak is normally used in honors math courses at universities. There is a very good chance that your friends don't actually understand Spivak and use it to just 'show-off'. Again, I might be underestimating them :P If your primary aim is competing for IMO, I suggest you head over to artofproblemsolving.com or similar sites and see how you stand out against others there.

@Hermit Hate to dampen your enthusiasm, but I really don't think Courant is at the right level for you, as you say that you know only 'some integration and differentiation'. I had Courant for my freshman year and it develops Calculus from analysis. I hardly think you need analysis for things like IMO. And frankly, books that lay a good foundation in Physics don't contain much problems. Problems you can find in many books. Try David Morin or Irodov for that.
