I just joined, looks like a great forum here!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

After being out of school for 5 years, I'm looking to get back into college. It looks like pretty much everything is Calculus-based. What areas of mathematics should I study, and know cold, before getting into Calculus?

Algebra? Geometry? Trigonometry?

Thanks a lot!
