I'd recommend Refresh Your Greek by Wesley Perschbacher (Moody Press 1989).
It uses UBS 3rd. It doesn't have every single word parsed, but the majority
of them that occur 50 times or less are footnooted the first few times they
occur in each book. Each new verb form is footnoted at least 20 times. Words
occuring 50 times or more are in a basic glossary at the beginning,
supplemented by those for each individual book of the GNT.

I got my copy at Christian Book Distributors.

Zerwick doesnt provide complete parsing, but is a separate text of
reading/grammar/translating cues., but it does not include the GNT. You will
need your GNT in one hand and Zerwick in the other.

I'd be happy to fax you one page of each to help you decide if they'd be
helpful for you.
