I have about a month before school starts and I got my high school geometry a couple weeks ago. I've read through a third of the book. It's starting to get confusing though because I didn't memorize the theorems and postulates from the earlier chapters. If I want to get a head start on the year, what should I do? Should I start memorizing postulates and theorems or something else? Thanks

Also, which proofs and theorems and postulates must I memorize? My book has about a 100.

You must memorise SOH CAH TOA, and have Pythagoras' theorem in your head. Also memorise the trigonometric x and y coordinate axes that includes the first, second, third and fourth quadrants (All, Sin, Tan and Cos). Draw many graphs, and if you have a scientific calculator such as the TI83, check out a few trig formulas and see what sort of graphs they produce.
