Personally, I think one of the best places to start is Lang his "First course in calculus". It doesn't focus very much on the very difficult background theory of limits, continuity and epsilon-delta statements. But it focuses more on the actual calculus such as integrals, derivatives and series. The book is quite rigorous (as is usual for Lang), but I think it's ok for a first course. When you finished it, you might want to try out a book like Spivak for everything you missed.

Another great (secondary) resource is http://books.google.be/books/about/C...AC&redir_esc=y

You might also want to check out Khan academy, Paul's notes and MIT Opencourseware. But do not use these as primary resources.
