My university's prerequisite is calculus 1 (which I've taken AP Calculus AB) to take Physics 1 (calculus based). My question is should I wait until I've completed calculus 2 to take physics 1? I've taken AP Physics B and did relatively well in it (although I don't remember everything perfectly..)

Nope, just take it after calc I.

Yes, I do not think that Physics 1 should require too much difficult calculus. Perhaps the only difference is that you will be relying much more on definite integrals, and dot/cross products. The Calculus AB curriculum would be sufficient, although some topics you may have to relearn.

Take it as soon as possible (that is: now).
