I would like to teach myself calculus, but uh...I don't know where to start. I've taken basic algebra and I'm in geometry, but I've never taken trig, physics(isn't this more of a post calc thing anyways?), or a second algebra(I'm pretty sure there is one...). I would like to know if anyone knows a good book(cheaper preferably...)/resource that teaches how to do it and helps develop an understanding of it.

I'm decent at math, but I've forgotten a couple things from algebra. Any resources on Trig and Algebra would be welcome as well, and knowing exactly what prerequisites I should have before attempting to learn calc. With algebra, two of the things I know for a fact I am forgetting how to do/what they are, are systems and quadratics. I never quite 100% grasped quadratics because they did't focus on them at all really, and systems I just haven't dealt with, but I do understand them, it's just the process of solving them algebraically.

Any questions toward me are welcome if there's anything helpful you might need to know to help me, and thanks for the help in advance!

PS: as for my math skills, I take things slower, and I'm not happy unless I know I will understand them later, or understand them when I'm doing them. However, I am accurate when I am given the time, and I have a great capacity for concepts.

Again, thanks!
