How best to reabsorb all the math and tricks of the quantitative section of the GRE?

I'm getting close to taking the GRE. Unfortunately I have been procrastinating a bit on the quantitative study. Mostly this is due to the fact I'm having trouble taking in and processing all the math at one time. It's been almost 20 years since I have seen most of this and it was all learned over a lengthy period of time the first time around. I'm feeling a little spun and annoyed by it all.
I took a practice test and did horribly and I mean HORRIBLY on the quantitative! I have several prep books but they just don't seem to be doing the trick. I know it is recommended to do as many practice tests and problems as possible, but I'm still stuck getting the rules all back into my head so I can't even seem to perform well on the practice questions.
Any ideas or recommendations? Unfortunately tutoring is not an option.
I do extremely well on the verbal section of the practice tests. I'm not a dummy. This makes it even more frustrating to so poorly on the other part.
