Al's book suggestion is a good one. Personally, what I did a number of years ago before taking calculus after receiving a different degree was to take a nice, comprehensive algebra/pre-calculus textbook and do problems during the summer before the class began and do problems until I was blue in the face. I ended up with a 96% on differential calculus in the first term and 100% in integral calculus in the second term.

I'll check that out. Probably see if the library has it first before I buy.
