What is your definition of basics, what level have you already reached?

What level do you hope to achieve, what would you like to be able to do?

3. If GCSE maths, best resource i'd advise you to use is MathsWatch (not free though i dont think, my school had it, but it was on youtube for a while).
They start from like E-D grade and go over everything in GCSe maths and have questions to practice.
4. mathematical expressions
equations in one variable
equations in two variables
system of 2 equations containing 2 variables
functions in one variable
functions in two variables

differentiation
integration
differential equations

first order differential equations
second order differential equations
higher order differential equations ...

linear differential equations
separable differential equations
exact differential equations
homogeneous differential equations
non homogeneous differential equations
using the method of undetermined coefficients ...

partial differential equations ...

If you say so, but I highly recommend that you check out websites such as Exam Solutions and Khan Academy, both will supplement any book you found online well and often explains concepts much more rigorously if you are struggling with the book's explanation.
7. oh i almost forgot ...

check out the website i am using to improve my mathematics ...
