I'm not fully sure were exactly you're studying at the moment but Engineers Ireland have online tutorials in Maths for the Leaving that may be of help to you:

http://www.steps.ie/maths/maths-video/videos.aspx

Some colleges have a specialized Maths learning centre so check out of your college has one. They're there to help students with any Maths problems they may have. Or if you're doing an entrance exam contact the college and ask them for any possible help.

Regarding report writing DCU have a good website on how to do them:

http://www.mecheng.dcu.ie/reports/section_1.htm

One good trick is to print out and then read over your report at the end. You'd be surprised at how many mistakes you'd missed on the computer screen that are in the actual paper copy.

Get in touch with the DIT student union. They will probably have a record of students that provide grinds to other students. A large portion of these would be engineer students aswell so you may be able to ask them any other questions you have.

There's a lot of stuff for these two online. I was trying to give myself a matlab refresher and found plenty of stuff online from primers to specific topics like loops and dynamic systems. Same with C, C#, C+ etc. I would imagine.

If you haven't had a gander maybe give it a google and you might find something helpful if you're stuck!
