Line Integral and parameterization

Can anyone recommend an online reference or book on line integrals and parameterization that's clear and concise?

I've taken a course in multivariable calculus, but these were difficult concepts for me to grasp and I never fully understood them at the time.

It looks like they're going to come up again in Physics next semester, so I'd really like to nail them over the Summer.

I don't know of an online reference, but the Schaum's outline entitled Vector Analysis is good.
Thanks Tom.

I checked it out on Amazon. It has very good reviews and is inexpensive, so I picked up a copy.

I will probably be posting some questions soon after receiving it.

Should I post them here or Homework Help?

If it's direct questions about examples in the book go ahead and post it in HWH, otherwise discussion about the subject can be held here.
