1. A little bit of practice on easier questions goes a long way. Practice solving questions at
See how many solved the question for a proxy of easiness.
2. A large part of the contests is to know how to test your own program and how to catch the end cases.
The above website will allow you to practice a few problems and
the automated judging system will let you know if you missed something (just like at the real contest).
3. Programming contests have a disproportionate amount of stdin parsing code, so it's worth brushing up on that.
Editors: Emacs, Vi, etc...
Make sure you have your programming language, algorithm, math, geometry, graphics, and reference books and notes with you to the contest. You cannot access any material over the internet. You can only use the default help system, javadocs, etc... You can use any written material or books you bring with you.
Here are some tips and hints for competing and coding in the contest. These will not be given out at the contest, so you probably want to print these out and bring them with you (you will not be able to access the internet at the ACM competitions, and should not use it other than to access the contest sites for practices).
