    In general, have all your high school stuff well known and exercised. That'll make anything way easier.
    In particular, take care of knowing well your basic algebra: fractions and operations between them, factoring, equations, etc., your basic trigonometry, your euclidean geometry (very important to properly follow what a formal proof is!), logarithms, powers and exponential functions, etc.

    I will be auditing calculus also
    (I took the class about 15 years ago and got A's but much rust has formed since)

    frankly, spending a lot of time on this forum, and posting when i get stuck has been the greatest source of help.

    my take
