I am an upcoming Highschool Junior. I think I'm pretty good at math, in 10th grade i completed Algebra II, pretty much at the top of the class, but i'm going into PreCalculus H next year, so i'm a little worried about my ability. I'd like to start learning PreCalc H over the summer, but I have no idea where to start. Everywhere i look is just really easy stuff (basic function knowledge that i've already learned) or really crazy stuff with symbols i've never seen before. So, can anyone give me a topic I should start with?

I am not that familiar with the American system but I understand from what you said that you are in your two last years of high school. They're supposed to be a little more challenging as far as math is concerned, but if you want to cover the curriculum beforehand, the best way is to get some books (one for each year) and go through them chronologically. Don't try learning just one topic, mix everything up and just go through it all. There's not that much material to cover in high school; provided you pick the right books (ie not too elementary and with a decent number of problems per chapter) it should be pretty quick.

Heh, I remember how annoyted I was in 8th grade that I couldn't figure out what the "long s" (integral symbol) meant.
