There are articles on this site to use in building your credit score.  You didn't say what it is now and what it needs to be.  Work on getting  the derogatories off and reallize t hat sometimes scores do not move up as fast as you want.

That is hard to answer since you didn't take any time to let us know about what your current situation is. I will tell you this though: your scores here will NOT be used, FICO scores will be used. Paying down debt is a quick way to improve your FICO scores. You should NOT close any accounts though. If you have any negative info on your reports, such as collection accounts, you might try to get them REMOVED, not just marked as paid. Do some reading on "pay for delete agreements".
