You could also read about history , it may motivate you to get a genuine desire to learn the subject. Burton's 'History of Mathematics' is a great book for beginners , with worked out examples and exercises at the end of each chapter. Get the study guide and solutions manual also. Thanks from MarkFL, eddybob123 and fabrc

I find that Geometry is as much about the theorems you know as it is about actually applying them. But that's perhaps because I've never been any good at it. Places like ProofWiki are easily accessible resources for erm... proofs.
