The 1000 words should be sufficient to answer most GRE verbal questions. Of course, the GRE verbal sections don't just test your vocabulary. So, just knowing all of the definitions doesn't guarantee that you'll answer every question correctly, since you also need to interpret the contextual information in order to determine what kind of word will fit in the blank.

Of course, in addition to possessing a strong vocabulary, you must be good at using contextual clues to predict the nature of the missing word(s).
Are the words "puissance" and "militate" some how considered synonyms ? in the sense that they both mean having an influence, or that doesn't hold true ?
PUISSANCE: Power to influence
PUISSANCE: Power to influence or coerce
The the president pledged to put the full PUISSANCE of the nation into the war effort
Synonyms: ENERGY, POWER, STRENGTH
MILITATE: Have force or influence (to have a substantial effect)
His prison record MILITATED against him.
Synonym: HAVE AN EFFECT ON
