I need to know where to start. I have high school algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, and AP statistics experience, as well as university level statistics and basic math experience.

I am looking to self-teach, and I am skilled in math/have the drive to practice. **Where should I start? I'm looking for specific books or a specific direction to go in. Should I collect HS pre-calculus textbooks, start with a calculus textbook, brush up on algebra/trig, or use some non-textbook method?**

I know this is vague/kind of in the wrong place, but I'm interested to see what advice I get.

Move this if it's in the wrong subforum.

Thanks!
