You can always check an integration by differentiating, and seeing if you get back to the original integrand. Do you in this case?
Here is a solution (it does not use partial fractions,
so you would still have to do it yourself, of course):
Let , then thus:
If you want to use Partial Fractions: .
The first term is easy to integrate, the second needs a substitution, the third needs a trigonometric substitution.
