    Smile Calculus B/C

    I am jumping straight to Calculus B/C. What are the things that I must know to make a better transition? High school course

    did you not see this paragraph given on the link?

    Prerequisites

    Before studying calculus, all students should complete four years of secondary mathematics designed for college-bound students: courses in which they study algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and elementary functions. These functions include those that are linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, and piecewise defined. In particular, before studying calculus, students must be familiar with the properties of functions, the algebra of functions, and the graphs of functions. Students must also understand the language of functions (domain and range, odd and even, periodic, symmetry, zeros, intercepts, and so on) and know the values of the trigonometric functions of the numbers 0, pi/6, pi/4, pi/3, pi/2, and their multiples.
    I can't really say what you need because I don't know your mathematical background. I can tell you that most calculus students need extra work on their skills in trig (identities, equations, and dealing with radians instead of degrees) and algebra (exponent laws, basic equation solving, graph sketching and functional analysis).

    here is something to keep you busy ...
