I was wondering if you guys have some recommendations for self study guides/books/courses for calculus BC (aka multivariable calculus). I'm almost done with AB......................
Any suggestions? I'd appreciate them.

If you're referring to Advanced Placement Calculus AB and BC, then to the best of my knowledge Calc BC is not multivariable Calculus but a continuation of Calc AB. Passing both of these exams will earn you Calc I and II credit at most American Universities.
The Stewart Calculus book is a very standard one for universities and for AP high school classes. The latest full edition completely covers Calc I-III and some differential equations. I liked it, but there are others that are more rigorous or just preferred that maybe others can post about.
For review for the exam, there are tons of preparation books at any large bookstore that will give brief review materials and have practice exams. I would suggest taking as many exams as you can beforehand to get practice on both the subjects and the time restraints.
I'm confused. Right now I'm almost done with a standard calculus course (derivatives, integrals, series, volumes, area, etc.) that covers BOTH AB and BC. I thought the next class was multivariable calculus? I mean, that was always what I knew and my dad (who's an engineer) says that. Isn't multivariable calculus defined as calculus 2 or 3 or something? Clarification please!
AP Calculus AB and BC covers the standard Calculus I and (maybe) II courses in university.
What comes after (if your school offers it) is multivariable calculus, equivalent to Calculus III. You can see the type of topics covered in a standard Calc III course here: Calculus III
