I am a sophomore and I can take precalc or AP Calc BC next year because I am doing very well in Algebra 2/ Trig.

I heard about skipping precalculus and taking AP Calc B/C. I was wondering, is there any precalc on the Math SAT II? Is AP Calc BC hard without precalc? I'm not sure how to go about this. If I do choose to skip it, can I learn precalc over the summer? Thank you!

Does your school offer calc AB? I know at some schools AB is not a prerequisite to BC, but at my school it is and I think it would be impossible to skip calc AB (calc BC is one of the hardest classes at my school, and AB is a requirement)
