Are these books enough? (ACT, ML2,Chem, Bio and Physics)

So I'm taking the ACT in April, and the SAT II's in May... And possibly in June too.

I already have these books:

ACT:
Barron's 36
Sparknotes math & science workbook
Sparknotes english & reading workbook
Princeton Review's ACT
Princeton Review's 1296 ACT questions
Princeton Review's english & reading ACT book
The ACT red book

SAT ML2:
Barron's ML2
McGraw Hill's ML2

Chemistry:
Barron's SAT Chemistry
Princeton Review's SAT Chemistry

Biology:
Barron's SAT Biology

Physics:
Barron's SAT Physics
Sparknote's Physics

I also have 2 books of SAT subject tests...

These two:
Half.com: The Official Study Guide for All Sat Subject Tests by College Board and Elaine Israel (2006, Other, Mixed media product)(9780874477566): College Board: Books

Half.com: Real SAT II: Subject Tests by College Board and College Entrance Examination Board (1998, Paperback, Illustrated): Subject Tests(9780874475999): College Entrance Examination Board: Books

The second is seriously old (1998); I only got it because I found it at a thrift store for like a dollar :p The other one is from 2006.

Any other recommendations? Especially for ACT & ML2...

I need some serious help on reading, so if anyone knows any good workbooks for those, that'd be great...

And I would really like a TON of practice tests... Besides the official ACT/SAT subject test books, which practice tests are fairly close to the actual one? (Barron's, McGraw Hill, PR, Kaplan, Sparknotes, etc.) List as many as possible please. (:

Should I get these?
