Hello Devin,

Some more useful abbreviations are,

GGBB for "Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics" by Dr. Daniel B. Wallace(a very
useful book to have).

BAGD for the previous edition of BDAG.

D&M for "A Manual Grammar of th Greek New Testament" by H. E. Dana and J.
R. Mantey.

ATR for "A Grammar of the Greek  New Testament in the Light of Historical
Research" by A. T. Robertson.

BDF for "A Greek Grammar of the New Testament and other Early Christian
Literature" by F. Blass and A. Debrunner.

LSJ for "A Greek-English Lexicon" By Liddell and Scott.

Smyth for ""Greek Grammar" by H. W. Smyth(this grammar is online for free

There are a lot of others but these should help you get started.

Best Regards,
Harry Jones
