    Pre-Calculus Help Books

    I'm taking an online class for Pre-Calculus. My book seems to be pretty intensive and doesn't really explain things well.

    Anyone have any good refrences or books to teach yourself pre-calculus?

    I'm eventually going to be onto the advanced math courses such as CALC III etc so I would really like to get a good solid foundation.

    I'm not great at math, but not bad either, I just need help learning.

    Think PreCalculus/Calculus for dummies I guess.

    In my opinion you should not waste time, and start with calculus material... the foundation will come with the process.

    But if I struggle with pre-calculus and the simple theories of that wouldn't I struggle with Calculus? I figure its PRE-Calc because the processes and methods are important to know for Calc.

    Plus I also need to still pass my Pre-Calc to get to Calc.

    The book I use is 'Calculus: One and Several Variables' It has a pre-calc chapter which is pretty good. Anything you don't understand can be asked on this forum.
