How can I learn calculus and differential equations well, in a relatively short amount of time?

I'm a mathless engineer. I should clarify, I'm not quite an engineer yet, but I will be entering an advanced engineering course very soon. I am acutely aware of my lack of mathematical background - I have taken upto differential calculus (so no multivariable calculus nor differential equations). Even the math that I have taken is quite weak.
What can I do to
1) Catch up to the rest of the folks who have a Differential Equations background?
-To do this, however, I need the following:
2) Strengthen my mathematical confidence so I can approach mathematical notation and symbolism like a "boss"
3) Improve my understanding of the mathematics I have already learned so I am better prepared for solving problems.
-For example, I've forgotten the entire lesson on series, etc.
