Default Review of calculus/ODE

Hello, fellow (presumable) mathematics enthusiasts! I am seeking some input. Here is my situation:

I am a college student, but my neither of my majors (Biology and Biochemistry) require a large degree of continued mathematical exposure; however, I will be taking a course next fall that requires Calculus I and II. That following spring I will be taking a class that requires Calc III and recommends Ordinary Differential Equations. I have taken all of these math courses in the past, but it has been several years and I unfortunately did not keep the textbooks. My question is this:

What textbook would you recommend for reviewing Calculus I, II, and III? My requirements are that it not assume I am somehow related to Einstein and/or Newton. I love math, but I must work somewhat more diligently at it than most people who would classes beyond Calc I (which was pretty easy). Texts that assume I can instantly see from step 1 to step 10 every time are frustrating. That being said, I do not want the textbook to be a "watered-down" version of Calculus either as that is boring and not helpful.

I would also like to obtain a textbook for ODE that meets the same criteria (does not have to include PDE, but that is a bonus). Input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,

Kyle

Edit: The Biochemistry portion (P-Chem 1 and 2) require some mathematical ability, but I am a bit rusty on my knowledge!

If you are referring to 'somewhere near M48,' then that would have been changed following discovery of M47. If you require a more geographically precise location, I live in the United States. To be really precise- I live in Kansas.

Sioux Kansa meaning "People of the south wind." Topeka and Wichita. home to many Native Americans who hunted the bison?

we do not want to offend ... but ...

Now we are in "SKASSAT CITY" because of the global crisis ... be equally interested in finding M48?

Referring to OP: I used the Thomas text in high school calculus.
It was excellent, but I have no copy now.
