So, any ideas on the good books? I'm planning to do a massive review over the next 4-5 weeks and solidify my foundation. Thanks in advance for any help.

the "best" is a relative term, and you need to specify your aim.

anyway, all of my precalc/highschool books are in hebrew so i cant help you here.

Essential Calculus with Applications by Richard Silverman

It comes hints or solutions to every single problem. It's very easy to read. The first chapter is basic pre-calculus material, but I guess it really depends on what you consider pre-calculus. It does not go into trigonometry though. If you work through all the examples, proofs of theorems, and exercises you will learn alot! It's a small book so it isn't very intimidating either:)

Some of the problems are really easy and some are a little more challenging, the ones with *'s on them are the harder ones. Great book!

Here is a link

You can get it used for like 4 dollars.

The book jma2001 listed looks really good too, and it covers trig and geometry. I would say get both!
