Do what people advise here and it won't take long.  I've disputed things on my credit report, paid down the balance on my one secured card, got 3 more unsecured cards and just in 3 weeks without everything being anywhere near finished I've gone from 590 to 635ish. 
 
If you follow the advice of these threads you can and will see your FICO go up fast.  But treat everything you learn as a way of life, not just as a way to aquire new debt.
