Ok, so here's a list of Math Courses I've taken at High School:

Freshman - Algebra 1

Sophomore - Geometry

Junior - Algebra 2

Senior - College Algebra (currently taking this class, receiving high marks)

With the math classes I've taken, will I be ready for my first year of engineering (Calculus 1)?

I was thinking of taking Pre-Calc at a community college the summer before the first fall term of my freshman year, but I read that College Algebra and Pre-Calc are both pretty similar, so should I even consider doing this?

Feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It says that if you score green in most topics, you are ready for the freshman calculus course for math and engineering majors (Math 1A).

So dont worry about Calculus 1 worry about Calculus 2 :D

And Enjoy the Math that is the only way of having fun and doing a great job that leads to good results :)
