Pay off one card at a time. Then move on to the next one. I paid $10K within 2 months and my score went from 650 to 780. 90% utilization to 1%.

Strive to pay the balances on your cards in full every month, or else this isn't going to happen.  Only YOU can make sure your usage is at the best 10 or lower) by careful use of the card and paying the balance in full as quickly as possible.
