Quick review of algebra 1 through trig?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, I honestly googled "math forum" and this seemed like it would be a good place to post this.

I'm going to university in the fall, and I need to take a math placement course in about a month. It will cover algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, and trigonometry. As you can imagine this is a problem because I haven't done any of that math in a year (haven't done trig in a year, and haven't done algebra 1 in four, the rest are in between). I was hoping someone on here might be able to give me a good way to study all of these things online. I just need little refreshers. A test that covers all of these would be perfect, and then I could go through my weak areas.

If this isn't the right place, could one of you point me in the right direction? Thanks for your time.

Khan Academy seems like it might be a good place to go check up on specific things, but it has too much information for me to fit into just a few weeks of study. Khan Academy would be great if I could take some quiz with a question for each subject through algebra 1 - trigonometry, and then I could get a list of my weak areas and use Khan Academy to review just that area. Is there anything like that?

Try searching for mathematics past papers to find both real and specimen papers and corresponding mark schemes of numerous kinds (ignore questions on topics you don't need to revise). What you find won't precisely match the tests you have to do, but will be quite adequate for revision purposes, as algebra and trigonometry are much the same everywhere. Try to work against the clock, and please let us know how you get on.

Here in the Netherlands we have a series of books to revise highschool subjects. For mathematics it's called; basisboek wiskunde (basic book math). All subjects are in there with a lot of problems to practice. It helped me to get from vocational education to a (technical) bachelor education.
I advise you to look for a similar book in your own language.
