Many students feel they are weak in Maths. What do you do when you are weak at something? You build up strength, muscle and stamina. Similar logic applies here, do questions, as many questions you can do, and you will find, that slowly and gradually that inner intuition for problem solving is building up. Make a commitment to do at least 5 questions everyday, and soon you will find yourself flying high in the air of confidence. I recommend the following books for Mathematics
Hammond and Sydsaeter: This should be your reference book. It is followed in Delhi University and if you are making up your mind to sit for MA economics entrance, you have to do this book completely. Do each and every question, every theorem of this book. It is mandatory
AC Chiang: You must read chapters on optimization from this book. Again, there is no close substitute available for this book, as far as optimization is concerned. No other book could beat it in its theoretical exposition of complex mathematical concepts.
Simon and Blume : This is a huge book but not so difficult. You can buy this one for back questions, if you want. You can do chapters on linear algebra, optimization and convexity/concavity from this book. These are some concepts which have huge probability of being asked in MA economics entrance exam.
Do just one book but do it thoroughly. Having just a stack of books, with dust collecting over them, since you have not paid any scant attention to them, is of no use at all.
