I would like to addressalmost all of them below. (Please post comments if you think of something else)1. You have covered your verbal books such as MGMAT SC/CR/CR, Powerscore, Veritas, Kaplan books and the available questionbanks but often on a practice test you see a lot of questions, which seem to test something else.2. You have not understood some of the concepts written in certain books (sometimes, as it happens, you think you haveunderstood a certain concept such as pronoun ambiguity but it becomes harder to apply in certain questions as the concept is alittle abstract in itself).
