My opinion is that these are excellent suggestions. I would additionally recommend Flash Greek Pro on the App Store for vocabulary flash cards. I have found them helpful to peruse when I have a spare moment, and at least one version of the app is keyed to many different introductory grammars. It provides glosses for all of the words occurring in the New Testament, and you can edit the list options by frequency. Glosses are obviously no substitute for studying words in context, but they helped me to use a lexicon less for casual reading. Have fun!
