    Uh, well I remember when I took it, we covered some trigonometry stuff (like some useful relationships between sine, cosine, tangent), some polar and parametric equations, studied functions (their holes, asymptotes, end behavior, domain and range etc.) briefly discussed limits, and worked with complex numbers.

    It was pretty easy and I didn't pay a whole lot of attention, so I don't remember exactly, but that's basically what we did. Of course it might be different.

    It's been a while, but I remember "precalc" being "everything you don't know about algebra/trig/limits" plus "as much calculus as we can cover."
