    Question about complex analysis that may have been asked

    From what I've read here on MHF, complex analysis seems nice. I was just wondering about the (prerequisites? I don't know how to say. What I should know before to start studying complex analysis). What I know from Calculus is, I think about Calculus II (but I'm still missing some important things, I have to pass the exam of it in July and as I am now in another field, I don't have that much time to spend on it and fix my weaknesses...). From Algebra I know about complex numbers and a very bit about matrices. (of course I know about MCD, congruences and so on... till a bit of graphs, but I don't think it has an importance in complex analysis). I will appreciate if you give me the name of some good books too.
    And I'm sorry if a very similar thread has already been posted, I was searching for it but didn't find.

    It should go without saying that one needs a good grounding in the basic material usually presented in the first two courses in the calculus. Now that must include all of the Ďarcí-trigonometric functions as wells as the hyperbolic functions.

    But this one may surprise you. You need an absolute understanding of the trigonometry on the unit circle as well as the basic theorems of plane geometry.

    I can't say I have an absolute understanding of the trigonometry on the unit circle, but I shouldn't be bad. I guess I know the rest.
    So if you have some recommendations about any book or website, I'd be glad.

    This thread is written with as little complex analysis as possible. If you cannot follow it, it means you are definitely not ready.

    Thanks a lot, I'll check it out. A quote from your thread :
    know the basics of infinite series, such as computing radius of convergence.
    , this is exactly what I need to study much more about Calculus so I might wait some time before taking complex analysis seriously.
