eulers precalculus book is superb.
 
I liked pre-calculus less than I like calculus. I'd have to say my interest in math was dwindling, but at the end of my junior year in high school it peaked back up, and calculus my senior year interested me a lot.

Sorry, what are you asking? If it's about high school math, I felt fortunate that I had motivated teachers with an AP track (many years ago). If it's about math in general, you need to learn to relax, and focus. Just like all of your other challenging subjects.:biggrin:

are you asking abut the subject or the cousre you are in? i had a great course right before calc, but iot was not called precalc. we learned logic, boolean algebra, some groups, cardinality of infinite sets, algebra, probability, combinations and permutations, and a little analytic geometry.

if yours is boring and useless, io recommend getting a good book, like analyse infinitesimal by euler, or mine, principles of mathematics by allen doerfer and oakley.
