Read  The Mathematics of Poker by Bill Chen and Jerrod Ankenman 
It is a fairly dry(boring) read but if you understand the math it will help your game. The math can be tough if you aren't very good with numbers but it shouldn't be too hard for someone who did ok in High School Algebra.

A winners Guide To Texas Holdem Poker by Ken Warren That give you you unbeatable guide to all 169 starting hands flop % etc

I remember looking at the unassigned practice questions in the book a day before the final exam, seeing an interesting question about the number of possible license plates. I memorized the answer because I thought it was interesting. The next day that question was on the final. Bingo!

I don't know what the CDROM does, but I do know it has a poker calculator on it. I think you can get information on the book(s) by the author; whom, also wrote a book strictly on internet gaming. You don't really have to know math to succeed at poker. You just need to know how to deductively think and apply basic math concepts. I think being able to read your oponent is the most important thing; although, that is a little harder to do online. However, if you're in a donk tournament, it is easier to adjust your play. Of course, this is my opinion.

don't know if anyones mentioned it but killer poker by the numbers by tony guerrera (foreword by John Vorhauss) is a very good book, really hurt my head at times but helped me get to understand expectational value which is rather important, really easy to read i thought as well, not like your average pure maths textbook lol
