Calculus vs Precalculus?
Hello, so I took Precalculus and trigonometry at a local community college this summer, and ended up with an A in both subjects. They were relatively easy to understand for me, and I consider myself to be *pretty* strong at math, though not the best.
So before I signed up for precalc at the community college, my math teacher as well as my counselor stated that I would end up struggling at AP Calculus (which I am taking right now).
But on the other hand, I know a few people who attended/attends some very prestigious and rigorous schools, and they stated that calculus and precalc are very different maths, and that I would not have much trouble with it.
I was just wondering, which side of the argument is more correct?
