I am going to be taking Precalculus next year and I was wondering if there was anything specific that I should now about. What kind of things do you learn in Precalculus?

Precalculus is more algebra practice (you can never have enough!) on topics that are specifically used in calculus.

Here's a link to Harvard's precalculus webstite:

that should be good enough!

When I took pre-calc, the students who went in with some prior knowledge of trig fared much better than those who had no exposure to it.
