    This video does a very thorough job of explaining integration by parts. It explains where the formula comes from and shows many example problems using this formula, including how to pick u and dv so it works. There are also reduction formulas that use integration by parts to make certain problems with high powers of x much easier and faster. An incredibly useful technique vital to integration in Calculus.
