    Look for first year university physics courses at your university that use calculus. Find out what textbook they are using and go to the campus textbook consignment store or to the bookstore and buy a second-hand copy. Start from the beginning, i.e. kinematics. The textbook should be sufficiently simple such that it defines basic concepts and the integration of calculus and linear algebra will likely keep you from getting bored while practicing the problems.
