It's been a while, but IIRC all of the probability that you need to know is explained in the material. For the calculus, I don't remember needing anything further along than midsemester Calc 2 (but again, it has been a while).
Prior knowledge of the material would likely help you get through the material faster, but unless the material has changed greatly over the past few years I don't believe it is necessary.

I used coaching actuaries manual + adapt for P. I'm sure ASM is great as well. I didn't have calc 3 and it worked out quite well. You will have to do some simple integrals. There were some harder integrals, but for specific situations and it is explained well so it won't take long to master, assuming you get the gist of Calc 2. In terms of prior knowledge of probability, I think bayes' theorem and basic familiarity with the normal distribution is enough. If you don't have that it's all explained anyway, you just have to spend a few extra hours.

I tried the free version of http://abacusli.com/ training course for exam P in October. They offered a 50% discount on the full version. Has anyone tried it? Thanks in advance.
