I understand there is quite a lot, but if you work your way through them, they are sure to help. By the way x2 indicates two different meanings (therefore x3 would mean 3 meanings .etc). I hope this helps you!
Re: Verbal Reasoning commonly used words!

Although this is a brilliant list with commonly used verbs, unfortunately it doesn't show all of the verbs.
I tend to think that if you do puzzles (e.g.puzzle books and some puzzle ds games) and read books or newspapers aimed at Secondary school children you will pick up a lot of vocabulary. Start a dictionary for your reading and write down every word that you don't know and all of the meanings, also include compound words and anagrams if you find any in your reading puzzling activities.:)
