Just add any book that covers whole syllabus for islamiat. It can be Hafiz Karam dad's book or maybe by any publisher as you wish.

And with it adding notes by Naveed Bhutto which are available in history of USA section at this forum,may be beneficial too.

Yes. And with it ,most important thing. You have not added any book for objectives. Objective part is the most important part which aspirants miss during their preparation. If you get good marks in objective then you will be able to score high. You must get any good book for objective portion for every subject. Or maybe do it online. But don't miss that portion,as it is very important to get your objectives right if you want to score high in competitive exams.
So, add one or two objective books. And with it try remembering facts i.e dates,events, personality names etc that you get while reading main books.
