Exhaustive list of books for mGRE

After dwelling into preparation of mGRE, I have came across plenty of resources to choose from. I would like to have suggestions from people who have already been in the 90th percentile since they know preparation strategies better. Following is the list of books I plan to use:

1. Princeton review.
I am using this for complex Analysis and "other" section since I haven't had a course on them yet. Should I use a specific book here?
2. Stewart Calculus
3. Gallian Abstract Algebra.
Dummit Foote seems too much to do, not that it is too hard, it's just not worth it according to me.
4. Munkres' Topology (ch 1-3).
Some say upto ch-7, but I don't think it's worth time to read that many chapters for a single question.
5. Linear algebra.
I believe almost any standard book is sufficient here, though I am using Friedberg.

Any more suggestions or additional sources?
Thanks!

Amen to the Munkres Ch1-3 only!

Also, thanks for sharing your insight on Dummit Foote.

Wait who said up to chapter 7 of Munkres? I read somewhere up to chapter 6 of munkres namely up to metrisation theorems, but I haven't read anywhere about up to chapter 7 of Munkres. Did you perhaps misread? You might have read up to Chapter 7 of Introduction to Topology: Pure and Applied by Colin Adams and Robert Franzosa, which corresponds to up to Chapter 3 of munkres.
