Dear Warrior,
I'm happy to give my 2¢ on this question.

At first glance, it appears the questions you got wrong were all over the map. As I scan the list of things you got wrong, no concentrated areas of problems leaps out at me. Part of the problem is --- in the EXCEL sheet, all I can see is right or wrong and general category. Math happens in the details. Math is all about the details. Really, to give a correct diagnosis, I would have to see your step-by-step work, your step-by-step thought process, on each and every problem. Obviously, there's no way you can provide that for a test section you have already taken.

I'll also say --- sometimes some fundamental misunderstandings can show up like this --- the same fundamental misunderstanding can cause confusion in problems in a number of different subject areas. Here, though, I am only speculating --- I would have to see your work to know.

In general, if you want productive feedback on your math, you really need to show details. You need to show an individual problem, and say -- here's what I did, here's how I thought about it, why is this wrong? Those are great questions on GMAT Club. Furthermore, when you get a problem wrong, you need to make sure you learn, not just the general idea, but every last detail about why you got it wrong. The mark of an excellent student is: never making the same mistake twice.

I'll suggest a few math blogs you may find helpful:

http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-sampl ... questions/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-probl ... questions/
Those last two blogs have links to several other individual blogs with practice questions.

Also, here are a couple questions from inside Magoosh, a DS question:

and a PS question:

When you submit your answer to each question, the following page will have a full video explanation. Each of our 700+ GMAT questions has it's own video solution, for accelerated learning.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
Mike
