Which course are you learning? Geometry is a very wide topic, it starts with very simple concepts like learning the names and properties of different shapes, all the way through to differential geometry which is not for the faint hearted!

The two areas of school-level geometry I suppose are Plane Geometry and Coordinate Geometry.

Before going into Plane Geometry you should be comfortable with basic algebra. That is, manipulation, factoring/expanding, solving linear, rational, radical and quadratic functions (at least) etc. Pythagoras Theorm and formulae for basic 2D shapes is pretty well assumed knowledge also. Coordinate Geometry, depending on what level and depth you go into it, would require a solid grasp on basic and intermediate algebra, as well as basic plane geometry and trigonometry. You should also be familiar with the concept of a function. - February 22nd 2011, 10:07 PMjaxonm7geometry help
Geometry DVDs are available where you can get benefited with the lessons taught in that. These DVDs follow certain pattern hence there will be detailed discussion about the basics.

Or do some reading on your own:
