Read http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcII/CalcII.aspx" [Broken]for your Calc 2 interests

i recommend you start early because there might be some sections that will require more time than the others, so if you start early you'll have extra time if you get stuck.

Try Professor Paul's Online notes which is available to anyone ,this is his website

http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcII/CalcII.aspx

there is a link to download his book , and there is no more crystal clear than his book in calculus 1 ,2 or 3 , read his notes

EDIT : the credit for the link provided goes to djeitnstine because he posted it 4 minutes before me also because he types faster than me :)

I was just in your same situation at the start of this last semester, from my personal experience I went through a ton of Integrals and Trig the summer before I took Calculus II. That helped tremendously. If you have Calc I (Limits, Derivatives and Integrals) and Trig (solving equations, graphs and identities) down solid, you should do fine if your algebra is on good foundation. I saw a fair amount of logarithmic functions as well (Integrating natural log and e^x functions).

Our class followed:

-Volumes of Revolution (Integrals mostly)

-Techniques to deal with more sophisticated Integrals including applications (know your trig derivatives/integrals)

-Some Differential Equations (need Integrals and Derivatives here)

-Parametrics (may have seen a few in trig?)

-Polar Coordinates (knowing your trig here is helpful along with Integration)

-Conics (maybe you saw some in pre-calc?)

-Series (Limits and a few Integrals)

I read here that what's tricky about Calculus II is that the new material as you progress isn't related to each other as much as Calculus I was, which I found was an accurate description. So having a solid background will take care of that. You'll learn also more intuitive approaches to problems as well. This is just what helped me personally, so it may be different to you. In each section though, you're bound to see your fair share of Integrals.
