I'm an engineer student, and I think I need a refresher on everything from algebra to calculus. Would definitely appreciate it if some of you can provide recommendations for some math self study software.

Do every problem in the book as fast as you can go and start over and do them all again.

Your local library or bookstore might even have copies.
