Self-teaching myself some calculus

Hello, I need to teach myself some calculus before a course in Calculus II begins this summer.

Here is what I need to teach myself:
-Derivates (chain rule, quotient, group, power, the six trigs)
-Antiderivatives
-Basic integration

I am already familiar with the definition of a derivative, finding limits, and finding asymptotes, so I can work from there. What would be the best way to go about learning this stuff? I would prefer free material online. I have looked for some videos on youtube but it is difficult to tell which ones I should do first, because there is always little bits of stuff in each video that I don't know.

Could someone leave me with some information or links and what order to learn this stuff in? Thanks.

This site has a complete Calculus section of 100 short
10 minute videos. The sequence is in an appropriate order for learnng.
www.khanacademy.org

Some of the documents here may help you retain what you
learn at Khan. Note the 3 Calculus Documents
www.scribd.com/pfreda
The documents look much better when downloaded.

I saw the khanacademy stuff on youtube and it looked good. Now that I have the site, I know what order to do it in. They have some good practice problems there too. So, this solves a lot of my problems, thanks.

Any other resources?
