Creit card repayment question

Credit card repayment question.... I'm helping a friend put together a credit card repayment plan/strategy and i want to double check that my common sense is right. Assuming 3 cards with similar balances and different APRs, (and we'll assume that those won't change significantly though I know they might), and a fixed amount available to pay each month. I think it makes sense to pay as much as possible to the card with the highest APR until it it's fully re-payed before moving on to the next highest APR, all the while paying the minimum payments on the other cards to avoid fees....

Please help me better understand repaying my student loans.

In 1997, I started making student loan payments, five months after graduating from graduate school. Shortly there after, in a sudden moment of sheer, blinding stupidity, I consolidated my loans, reducing my monthly payment and doubling the term of my loan. I do not want to make payments for 10 more years, however, I cannot figure out how to calculate the money I would save py doubling my payments this November. [more inside]
