So I was wondering what math skills I need to brush up if I want to sucessfully pursue undergraduate studies in Physics. I am namely 6 - 7 years removed from high school and have therefore forgotten a lot of things I was being taught in Maths classes. Another thing is that where I come from (Slovenia) we didn't have "Algebra", "Calculus" or "Trigonometry" as separate classes, but only Maths as one all-encompassing class. I'm pretty sure we went into more detail than US high schools go (don't know about Canada and UK, though I assume for the latter it's similarly rigorous as throughout Europe) and that we covered everything that was needed.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

However, since I'm applying to Canadian universities I was thinking of brushing up my skills by going through textbooks in English - to get familiar with the terminology - and given that there also seems to be a differentiation as far as particular parts of Maths are concerned, and would therefore like to kindly ask for anyone who is willing and can to point me in the direction of what exactly I need to re-learn and which textbooks would best serve this goal. Is there a book that covers all that is to know?

Thanks in advance.
