I really want to be a better math student and programmer, being both critical and analytical thinker. Any suggestions would be appreciated

But the basis of all of this is algebra, so make sure you get that stuff down REALLY good.
When you take those classes you will have to purchase those books, and those books are more than enough for practice and bettering your self, but if you really wanna practice some of this before you get there, you can always pick up a Calculus for dummies book. I really enjoy math and Even i own a series of the dummies books from Pre algebra to Calculus 3, they serve as a great cheat sheet, but also as an absolutley great guide!
But before you can go to Calculus you need some trigonometry knowledge in you too!
Hope that helps!

These courses are Junior or Senior level college classes. You can look them up on Khan academy if you're feeling brave. Don't feel bad if you don't understand it initially, like algebra; it's hard the first time you learn it.
May the compiler be with you.
