Is there anything else that should be on there?

My Greek was pretty good, exegetically speaking.
I'm getting a reader's GNT...
Looking forward to hearing if you all think I'm going overboard, or if Kittel isn't that useful, etc.

I would not pay full price for Kittel.

I had already purchased BDAG once and then a college buddy "Borrowed" it. I'm not sure which buddy it was, they all deny it, but one semester it was in my Greek box, and the next it wasn't!
I would like to become fluent and not just be proficient in "BibleWorks Greek" (not that I still don't love BW). I figure that will come with reading, reading, and more reading. Eventually I'll take the plunge and buy Buth's program. That should help too.
