Best Precalculus textbook/What Precalc do you use?

I'm going to be doing AP BC Calc this year at Andover but I'm looking to solidify my Precalculus (seems unusual I understand) but the dilemma for me is that i come from Australia where maths is integrated. ie. We don't just do Algebra for one year and then Geometry the next and so on. We do a little bit of everything every year. So it means I can cope and do well in Calculus but it also means I've missed out on the hardest topics of Precalculus as I was meant to take them in later years at Australia. So I was wondering if anyone knows a really good precalculus textbook I can use to brush up on the hardest stuff in Precalc before I go to Andover and BC Calc.

I know some of you will say just to do the Precalc at Andover but the thing is I already know all/most the stuff in AB Calc thats not in PreCalc and I think I can cope/do well in BC Calc if I just brush up on my Precalc and with it being summer and all, I have the time to do so.

So thanks heaps for a quick reply!
