Learning geometry from scratch

Now, I'm highly got interested in learning geometry by playing a game called "euclidea" but I forgot all the basics that I've learnt in my school so, where should I start learning?
Any  resources and suggestions always welcome.

How much have you fogotton? The Math(s) is Fun Advanced site can help for some things.

Well I forgotten some solid geometry concepts like volume and polyhedrons, in plane geometry ive no idea about euclids axioms and postulates

Hi, I'm also using another book called " a school geometry" by 
SH Hall and FH Stevens. So my question is it okay to use more than one references to study geometry?

Wolfram MathWorld is a good reference resource.
