No further information on the ITI Trainee Exam Pattern has been given by WBSEDCL. Therefore I had searched on the net for previous years
WBSEDCL ITI Trainee Exam paper. But I could not locate any.
However, I find that the
General Aptitude test sections (GK, Logical Reasoning, English & Arithmetic) of this exam is very similar to those held for bank clerks, as you can see in my previous blog topic titled: IBPS CWE Clerk Exam Pattern, Papers & Books
. Moreover, the minimum basic qualification is matriculation for both the exam. You can use the sample exam papers of bank clerk exam section-wise as sample papers for WBSEDCL ITI Trainee exam General Aptitude sections.

You can buy any of the books given above for WBSEDCL ITI Trainee exam for the aptitude setion - but however, please note that there is no "Computer Knowledge" section in WBSEDCL exam.
For the technical paper of WBSEDCL ITI Trainee exam, I feel your course materials during ITI course is sufficient. But however, if you want to put-in some extra effort, you can buy the following two books:
