Each level has three scrolls. You do not have to pick them up in order. You can pick them in entirely separate runs of the same level, or backtrack to find one you missed, or whatever. Whenever you retrieve a scroll, you can immediately quit out of the level, or die, or restart the checkpoint, and the scroll will permanently show up as having been retrieved for the purposes of this achievement. However, the 1,000 points you receive for the scroll resets along with the checkpoint if you go back to a point before you collected it - you will have to re-obtain the scroll for the 1,000 points, but not for the achievement.

Collecting scrolls also spans playthroughs; if you start your New Game + run, scrolls you collected in your normal playthrough will show up as having been collected. This is also true for seals.

One scroll in every level (except the first level) are protected by little mini-puzzles called "challenge rooms". If you have difficulty getting past one of them, check out the TA guides for the achievement Of the Mind.: http://www.trueachievements.com/viewcomment.aspx?commentid=6...

The guide suggested by isaacballs is useful if you know you're in the right area, but the pictures in the guide only cover the area immediately surrounding the scroll. Following is a text guide for each level's scroll locations, alongside a link to that level's pictures from the XBLAfans guide. The two in conjunction should leave no doubt as to where to find the scroll. The text is hidden behind spoiler tags in case you prefer to only look at one specific level.
