$\displaystyle \int\!\frac{x^2  2}{x^3\sqrt{x^2  1}}\,dx = \frac{\sqrt{x^2  1}}{x^2} + \text{C}$

Differentiate my answer and simplify the result to give the original integrand. Then write down each line you wrote in reverse order, adding integral signs where appropriate.

I would split the numerator into $(x^21)1$. Alternatively, set $u^2=x^21$.

This one yields nicely to a trig substitution. Let $x=\sec\theta$. And $dx=\sec\theta\tan\theta\,d\theta$. Also, it helps to know that $\sqrt{\sec^2\theta1}=\tan\theta$.
