Check out the document below which gathers 150 phrasal verbs. I was glad to see, after having gone through all of them, that by now you probably know, consciously or unconciously, at least 90% of the verbs shown in the list.
I would like to give you some advice on how to learn these verbs: As you may feel already, phrasal verbs are a somewhat complicated part of the English vocabulary, so I wouldn't suggest that you binge learn a big amount of them. Rather, it is much better if you start using them little by little, building up your own personal dictionary of phrasal verb in a sustainable way, not to die trying, ok?

Camouflages her bad luck
