How can I relearn Spanish?

I studied Spanish in high school and college, and I even spent a semester abroad in Spain. At that point, I was very proficient at reading, writing, and speaking it. Sadly, in the 8 years since graduation, I feel as though I have forgotten everything. I am looking to get into a field where knowing Spanish would be very helpful, and I am trying to figure out the best way to both relearn what I knew (and possible go beyond that). Obviously for speaking, I will need to get out there and practice, but before that, should I just pick up my old textbooks and get going? Or, is there a better way?

Veni Vidi Vici

What's the best way to learn Latin outside of a classroom? Can anyone recommend a textbook, piece of software, dictionary, etc.? The goal is more to read Abelard and Aquinas rather than Aurelius, but I'll take what I can get.
