Teaching myself multivariable calculus

The title says it all, really. I'm studying machine learning and and artificial intelligence in my spare time, and eventually I want to get into the field professionally. I'm getting to the point where I'm going to need to know this stuff. Does anyone know good resources for this? I've poked around at Khan Academy and it's alright, but I'm looking for some other options. I tend to learn best from books for this kind of thing, but I'm open to all kinds of suggestions. I know the basics of calculus, but it's been a while, and I haven't touched multivariable calculus at all.

    Forgotten Calculus is my go to text for learning/relearning calculus stuff. The last unit in the book is on "Functions of Several Variables" which is what I think you're looking for.

    It is very straightforward and doesn't get bogged down in overly complicated explanation. Just tells you what you are doing, shows you an example and builds on that. Provides a good set of practice problems and quality solution set which you need to know how to get to the correct answer.

    MIT has a free online course for multivariable calculus as well.
