Hi, guys!

Can solving problems only from IOI-style olympiads (like POI, JOI, IOI, IZHO, etc.), help me to be ready for any IOI-style olympiad? And which OI would you suggest to solve?

Personally, I've heard that POI is great for getting better.

Please, share with your opinion, 'cause I want to hard-work in summer.

"Best way to get better at x is by doing x."

So yeah, solving those problems does help. Pick whichever you like the most, where you find problems challenging, but not too difficult. You can also consider past national contests and maybe even junior contests.

    Have you ever solved POI problems? If yes, what do you think, is it worth it?

      I did a few. I enjoyed them. So definitely worth giving them a try.

I'm shocked by negative contribution.
