The mathematics is most critical. One needs to be good with Intermediate Algebra, Trigonometry, and at least first-semester Calculus & Analytic Geometry. (That's for if the degree were just for Physics; and to be able to start.)

In that case you WILL have great difficulty. You MUST have at least some basic Trigonometry knowledge and you WILL USE IT. Be sure to thoroughly study a 1-semester course on Trigonometry before you begin your first Physics course. You must be knowledgeable and skilled with basic triangle sines, cosines, tangent, and graphs of Trigonometric functions (at least for sines and cosines).

Serge Lang: Basic Mathematics. Covers Pre-calculus in detail.

Good geometry book. I really like the explanation of logic, which leads to proofs.

Well written, lacks a bit in the construction department, but you can find constructions on the net.
