    Making a leap from algebra 1 to precalc

    serious answers please! what do i need to know about geometry and algebra 2 to understand the concept of precalculus? i only got to algebra 1 in highschool due to laziness, but i took my college placement test and got into precalc. i've developed a habit of studying on a daily basis and i've maintained great grades since my first semester of college.

    what materials do i need? graphing calculator, graph paper, etc?

    what are some good readings to help me?

    i am new to the forum, and this place seems very very handy towards my dilemma. thank you very much to those who answer with sincerity, i appreciate it

    i only got to algebra 1 in highschool due to laziness, but i took my college placement test and got into precalc. i've developed a habit of studying on a daily basis and i've maintained great grades since my first semester of college. Then you'll do fine. Relax man.

    what materials do i need? graphing calculator, graph paper, etc? A graphing calculator will suffice.

    what are some good readings to help me? I would brush up on your algebra by taking the chapter reviews in any algebra text and reading up on what you get wrong.

    thank you very much to those who answer with sincerity, i appreciate it
    You'll do fine.

    you will learn a lot by reading the posts here

    sometimes several people reply with different ways to solve the same thing
    I have always seen every post answered correctly altho some went thru corections in process or unless the original post was not possible

    always the best way to learn math is to do problems
    you can memorize formulas perfectly but still one has to know how they work

    I would encourage you to visit this site everyday, and view the posts that relate to what you are studying. the help here is excellent and very responsive.

    i am fairly new also
