By studying it...

...oh, and doing problems.

i'm reading through the chapters on special relativity in griffith's electrodynamics. and then i'll do the problems in the past gre's that i have.

Blatt's Modern Physics is top choice for me in this area.

Serway's chapter on SP is very concise and if you work all of the problems in that chapter, you'll be prepared for 95% of the sp gre problems.

Goldstein has a decent section for SP, and the Gautreau book in Schaum's is pretty good too (and cheap).

I find problems twice as fast once I upgraded to 4-vectors....
