    I done these books before. I recommend going in order because these books get harder and harder. I think what you have is in order.
    It is necessary to buy the solution manual. The concept of these books is teaching the basics then going to the competition level like MathCounts or AMC.

    I think it would be more beneficial to get rigorous books on the subjects you want to learn. Ie, for geometry start with Moise, then Planemetry and Stereometry, both of these books are by Kisselev.

    For Trig. Learn it from a textbook aimed at college students supplemented with Gelfand. Then move onto Loney.

    Do you mean finished by: doing every problem, understanding the big picture, and being able to prove on your own every theorem without looking?

    No solution manuals, ever.

    Are you really interested in competitions? If you are, then the aops books are great. If you're not, then there are many better books that you can go through.
