  1. you can use a trig substitution, or partial fractions.

    The trig substitution will give you a result in terms of inverse hyperbolic functions
    The partial fractions will give a result using logs.

    Of course, the hyperbolic functions involve exponentials, so the inverse functions involve logs.Not sure which is "better."
