Welcome to GMAT Club.
Your PowerPrep score look good. Another month or two should give you a good boost.

If you can get access to MGMAT books, that would be best (though looks like you covered MGMAT SC already). Otherwise, from the books you mentioned, Kaplan 800 is probably the best out of the bunch to cover.
Looks like your weakest area is SC - get a grammar book asap - that's the best way to address it.

I would focus most on learning and strategies than taking a lot of questions or tests. You can start practicing with Kaplan Tests or others and start taking full tests, about once a week - make sure you review your results but in the other free time, study grammar and maybe read some fiction/articles/etc.

Get a grammar book - that's the best option; you have enough time for this.
Also try to read GOOD English literature/fiction as much as you can see this: GMAT Fiction.

Dont' think you need LSAT CR but if you have time, then why not.

Sounds like you are pretty strong, so no comments

MGMAT Number Properties and MGMAT Word Translations are good books to cover for anyone; otherwise no comments.
