What do I need to know to be ready for pre-calculus?

I just found out that I am going into a pre-calc class next month and my math skills are not ready for it. Taking a lower level math class is really not an option at this point. I have taken algebra and statistics at the community college level but this was a few years ago so those skills are rusty. I have an intermediate algebra book that I have been working through but I get the feeling that a lot of what I am learning from the book may not actually be useful for the pre-calc class.
Are there any particular math skills that I should focus on while I get ready for the pre-calc class? Or would it just be best to study all of the algebra?
I am aware of the various websites that help teach math skills, but I find them to be a bit scattershot in that I cannot tell which skills build on previous skills and which ones would get me prepared for pre-calc.
