Collections are a derogatory remark on your credit so you want to get them paid as fast as possible, BUT it would help if you knew about the statute of limitations on collections and how to negotiate a pay for delete agreement since these things can save even more money.  Once the derogatory remarks are gone, your score will improve.  The articles here also give advice on how to improve your score.  Sure helped me!
