You need to note that questions in level 1 Olympiad will be 60% from your current class syllabus, while other 40% will be from your previous class.

Level 2 Olympiad questions will be totally from your current class syllabus.

Best Book to Prepare for NSO

MTG books are the best books to prepare for NSO. On an average, 25-35% of the questions in NSO directly come from MTG books. Better source than this is only previous year question papers.
