Basic Math for Math Majors

Hello! I'm a first semester grad student in applied math. I am a non-traditional student in a variety of ways (liberal arts undergrad, working full-time), and while I'm finding that I intellectually understand the concepts I'm learning, execution is being made difficult by my lack of fluency with algebraic manipulation and calculus.

My Trig Teachers Name Was Mr. Angle But That Didn't Make Him A Good Teacher.

My math skills are no where near where I'd like them to be. Can you recommend a self-paced math learning site? Pretty much any branch of math can apply. [more inside]

I am sick of having to say "I'm not good at math."

I have always had difficulty with mathematics. Now I'm in my mid-thirties and have gone back to school to study engineering. Things are not going appreciably better than they did the first time I went to university. What can I do to fill the gaps I have and become a skilled problem-solver? I want to go from being a C to being an A student. [more inside]

Recommend books/resources for amateur to learn mathematics

I'd like to learn Math. I'm particularly interested in learning trig and calculus. I'm don't need to learn these disciplines for any purpose. I'm just interested. I'm a reasonably bright guy, with a logical mind (I've worked as a programmer), and I'm a good self-learner. I'm not in a rush (don't mind working at this for a few years). What books/resources would you recommend? I should probably go all the way back to Algebra, which is pretty much where I left off in High School years ago.
