With this book you can prefer the Objective English by P.K.Dey Sarkar

2. For mains - Descriptive English by SP Bakshi, Arihant
As we all know that the WBCS mains exam has some descriptive part with questions from essay writing, editorial letter writing, precis writing, or report writing; therefore this book is enough for this stage.

History (Prelims+mains) -

1. Prelims - Indian and world History by Jeevan mukhopadhyay

For WBCS Prelims the history part itself covers 50 questions (25 from history and 25 from INM)

Table -

25 marks > Ancient history + medieval history + modern history
25 marks > INM (Indian national movement)
50 marks > Total

2. Mains - For mains you have to read thoroughly Jeevan Mukhopadhyay and History Krishna Reddy. 

In the History Krishna Reddy book, the MCQ section in every chapter is very crucial. Because this MCQ part covers 45% questions. 

Geography (Prelims) -

In geography, for prelims you can read the Indian and West bengal geography book by Kartik chandra mandal.
