The manual is especially useful for those who want to prepare for Round 1 and 2 of the South African Mathematics Olympiad. The book is divided in to three sections: Problems, Lessons and Solutions. An attempt is made in the lessons to cover the theory that is required for the solutions of most of the problems. The solutions are represented in such a way that most of the learners would understand them. The publication is available as a CD.

The book is a compendium of mathematics problems commonly encountered in Mathematics Olympiads. It is suitable for high school pupils (Grade 7 to Grade 12) who wish to prepare for such Olympiads. It is structured to assist high school teachers who prepare their pupils for mathematics competitions. In addition to the problems and detailed solutions, this 637-page book contains 11 lessons and 7 appendices that cover almost all the theory required to address the problems contained the book. The titles of the 11 Lessons are as follows: Prime Numbers & Factorisation; Congruence Arithmetic; Sets, Functions, Counting and Probability; Useful Formulae; Number Systems; Polynomials; Inequalities; Theorems in Geometry (Junior); Theorems in Geometry (Senior); Deeper results in Geometry; Triangle Formulae. The 7 appendices have the following titles. Triangular Numbers, Fibonacci Sequences and the Golden Ratio; Polygons; Trigonometry; Some Triangles having Integral Sides; Four Classical Problems (The Fermat Point, Perfect Numbers, Platonic Solids, 20-80-80 triangle); Miscellaneous Topics (the Clock Problem, Logical Problems, Functional Equations, etc).
