Hello! Готовить means "to prepare" or "to cook". Приготовить is the perfective aspect of this verb in both meanings. Подготовить is the perfective aspect of the verb готовить, but only in the meaning "to prepare". Подготовиться normally implies the process of preparation, приготовиться implies the result, "to get ready".
