  1. Both are correct, depending on the context.

    The second question is probably more likely, indicating that you have been working, probably on your own, getting ready for school.

    The first question implies that someone has been working with you to prepare you for school. So, as a result, you are now prepared. While syntactically correct, it is not a common question. It might be asked by a somewhat pompous instructor or principal.
