Are there any resources to help adults with ADD cope with challenging math procedures?

I haven't done math in decades and, suddenly, am faced with taking the GRE next month. :( I took a practice test and did really well on verbal (which is just to say: I'm not stupid) but I did terribly on the math.

Aside from needing to review stuff I've forgotten, I'm noticing on complex problems requiring multiple steps to solve that I tend to lose track of why I'm doing things and how it even related to the original question. This takes too long, and I get annoyed at myself and demoralized! :doh:

I wonder if people have figured out any tricks for coping with this?
