What are the prerequisites?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In High School, we had Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II (Intermediate Algebra), Trigonometry, and pre-calc classes, and you took them in that order. Do I only need the basics of Algebra, Euclidean Geometry and Trigonometry to start with calculus? Or are there other topics that would really help?

Also, if you know any good textbook recommendations for any of these areas, I would appreciate hearing them.

Thanks!
