I'm looking for textbook suggestions for teaching myself algebra and trigonometry. Are there any algebra textbooks that stand out as exceptionally good? [more inside]

Follow up Filter. Last week on AskMe I asked for help getting a formula
to calculate "future value" in excel. blue mustard came through with the perfect answer: "fv = pv (1+r)n + pmt ((1+r)n - (1+q)n) / (r-q)" Now, I need to have a formula I can plug into excel that solves for q in blue mustard's formula. [more inside]

I want to learn intermediate/advanced algebra and on to trig/calculus. Are there any good books / software / resources / websites that will help me with this, aside from the regular run of dry textbooks? [more inside]

I'm currently a junior in college majoring in computer science. Like most geeks I slacked off during high school and now find that I don't know a lot of very basic math (my geometry is horrible, my algebra skills could be much better). This is very embarrassing and I would like to get caught up with this material as quickly as possible. I have two questions:
1) Are there any math audio books? A google search didn't show any, but this would be the best for me.
2) Are there any books aimed at adults for personal study?
I'd like to understand the theory behind the math more than the math itself. Anyways, any help is appreciated.

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.
