For mathematics students, limit is the first subject encountered through Calculus. As the first material, several studies show that students get gaps in thinking about subjects related to competence in mathematics school and advanced mathematics. Therefore, readiness analysis is needed to determine the appropriate Limit learning design. The study was conducted on the first semester students majoring in Mathematics. The analysis results show that students' highest readiness is in the ability to count operations, integers and rational numbers, and algebraic operations. The most minimal competencies mastered by students to learn limits are in determining domains and range of functions and expressing distances in absolute value notation.
