Best way to review college Calculus I & II in as short a time as possible to prove competence in the subject? Any website, book, or methodology recommendations? I need to test out of these courses to make sure I'm not paying for an extra year of school.

I got reasonably advanced in math back in high school (by my senior year I'd taken differential equations at a local university and got an A) but over five years later I'm woefully out of practice. I'm finally finishing my bachelor's and need Calc I & II pre-reqs to continue with my coursework, but because I took it in high school my coursework there doesn't count (though my Diff Eq course transferred over to my current university's Diff Eq course, two levels about Calc II . . . bureaucracy).
If I do well on a Calc II final given to me by the math department I'll be allowed to at least place into Calc III. If I don't, I'm starting again at Calc I. So it's very important that I do well. Does anyone have any suggestions for studying for this?
