Indian students tend to be slightly different from the rest when it comes to preparing for the GRE. We think GRE Quant is a piece of cake because we've done engineering. At the same time, we think GRE Verbal is difficult because we have to “dock word lists”. You need to learn an incredible number of words, and there is no way around it, because the questions of completing the text and sentence equivalence in the verbal section are almost all about understanding the meaning of the sentence and the alternative answers.
The rest is practically common sense. Reading comprehension is also difficult, not because of vocabulary, but perhaps because Indian students have never experienced questions where it is necessary to analyze each and every damn word in the paragraph. Doing well in the GRE is difficult, even for newcomers from the academic corridors. Compounding the difficulty of GRE preparation, is the fact that the test is probably very different from other tests you have performed.
