You don't mention what your current debt obligations are. If you don't have any actively revolving debt to pay off then the first place to start is to correct any accounts that are delinquent (assuming they're not within 1 year of falling off of your report due to the statute of limitations ending). Make sure you pay on time every month, at least the minimum, if not a little more.

Don't expect to see a major improvement within 3 months, the system doesn't always work that quickly and it's a two steps forward, three steps back process.
