Hi, I'll be beginning my high school sophomore year in August and will be taking Precalc in school, but, because I want to start studying physics seriously, I thought it would be a good idea to take initiative and get a solid foundation in the required math before classes start (an entire academic year for Precalculus is ridiculous, anyway). I already have a copy of Spivak's Calculus at hand, so I'm set after I find a good book for Precalc - can I get a few recommendations?

A plus would be an algebra based Physics text so that I can get a taste of what I'll be learning after I am relatively confident with basic Calculus.
