Hello lovely MHF people,

To make a long story short, I'm 30 years old and all of my professional skills are related to music. But I want to change careers and go back to school for a second undergrad degree in engineering. I want to be ready to take Calc 1 in January. I haven't had a math class since I was 17. I have never had Calculus. Do I need to have a very firm grasp of algerbra, geometry, trig, and pre-cal before attempting Calc 1? Is there anything I can skip over? Geometry perhaps? Is there anything I need to add to this list?

Thanks in advance!
