This may sound odd, but since Algebra II textbooks usually include Trig near the end, and since Calculus textbooks usually include Trig near the start, I'd personally skip Trig as a separate course and jump straight from Algebra to Calculus. That's what I did, and I had no trouble as a result.

Thanks for your reply, I guess I may try something like that. Know of which brands of math books are recommended and which brands are not recommended?

I would suggest Saxon Advanced Math. It is a good bridge between Algebra and Calculus. We are using it right now and sd is really liking it (and she normally does not like math). My sister used it with her kids (who are now in College) and they said it was a good prep for Calculus.

I used Saxon for Algebra 1/2 through Algebra II, then moved on to a regular college textbook.

Ted's comments are right. Most Alg.2 books do introduce trig quite well in the text at several points, and then trig is one of the first topics covered in a precalculus book. There is no need to have a separate trig text.
