I'm looking to take Exam P at some point next year. I have had three semesters of Calculus, but that was several years ago. I have always been fairly good at math (BC calculus went fine in high school, math team, 1600 on the SAT, etc.), but I'm pretty sure I've fogotten most of what I learned in Calculus. For those that have had to brush up in this area, was the ACTEX Calculus Review Manual sufficient, or should I look into other guides as well?

Thanks for any suggestions. I know many of you have answered a ton of actuarial newbie questions, and your patience is appreciated.

I'm taking Calculus III this semester after several years out, and found some excellent free textbooks on-line to review with: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/ Look under 'Class Notes'.
