Hi, I'm posting this on here and the post-bacc thread bc most people on this thread have already gone through the process and might be more insightful than post-bacc posters who are mostly looking into post-bacc programs right now. It's sort of the like the blind leading the bling there.

I've never taken calculus or pre-calculus. The last time I took a math course was nearly 10 years ago. I don't have time to take a math course before my science classes begin. Does anyone recommend any books that I could use to brush-up on this forgotten math and to hone in on the untaken math to help in these post-bacc science classes? Did any former post-baccs to something like this? What did you do/use? Did it help? Thanks.

How to ace calculus, the Streetwise Guide

by: Adams, Thompson, & Hass

Now do you want a review before you take a class or before you take the MCAT?

Anyway, I bought this book and it has a really nice, light approach with humor mixed in. I haven't had college math in 8 years and i started calc this semester and I'm doing fine.
