Kutasoftware.com - FREE worksheets - WITH ANSWERS. I use this worksheet generator ALL THE TIME for pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra 2 and calculus. Check it out!

Khan Academy - I'm sure you've heard good and bad about this site. So have I. But it does have good repetition and practice, and videos for when you are stuck.

Education Portal - Some of these videos are goofy - learning about quadratics by watching "Furious Fowls" launched in a slingshot, aimed at a pig. But that's what makes most of these videos interesting. And they are short. Followed by a short quiz. Good for shoring up the fundamentals. Not all the series are finished yet, but check out the math courses and AP, GED and High School Courses. Update: Site used to be completely free. This is changing.

SAT - College Board - Free Practice tests. Gateway to free practice questions on khan academy. Work your way through each tested concept in math. Get an idea of what skills need to be worked on to achieve the score you want.

Do it! What are you waiting for?

Books by Edward Zaccaro for Elementary and Middle School Math: I have used these books with my younger students and have watched them excel. After a few sessions with one student, the teacher called her aside after class, and asked if she was cheating (!) because her score had increased so dramatically.
