There are many books on calculus. My favorite one is the free book by Keisler, which takes the historic approach using infinitesimals. This is nonstandard nowadays, but the standard approach is covered too. https://www.math.wisc.edu/~keisler/calc.html

The most minimalist minimum to be able to study Calculus, or start studying Calculus is Intermediate Algebra and Trigonometry. Learning more than just the minimum will improve your ability to handle learning Calculus, so you really should include Geometry and College Algebra, or additionally a Pre-Calculus course. A student who has the prerequisite knowledge can begin using any typical good undergraduate college textbook on first-year Calculus.
