Chemistry: my school uses IB course companion + IB study guide, i perfer the OSC revision guide
Physics: book by Tsokos + IB study guide, personally still prefer the OSC revision guide
Maths: Oxford maths HL, it has a lot of mistakes but its the only one we got - -
for the option if you are doing stats&Prob i recommend the cambridge one by hugh neill, but unlikely that you need it now.

I will just say what we use for Physics:
The Tsokos book, which is amazing, and covers almost everything. The only thing I am not studying from it are parts of Option H, Relativity.
We also use the Kirk book, which is good for scanning through everything there is to know, but misses a lot of important details (which Tsokos covers), and does not give that many questions to solve (but Tsokos does).

I only have 2 subjects in common with you, so...
French B SL - we use the CLE International "Grammaire Progressive du Francais" workbooks, but I don't like the books at all.
Chemistry HL - the Oxford IB Study Guide for Chemistry and the Ibid IB Chemistry textbook by John Green.

They're quite expensive but the Pearson Baccalaureate books are the best I've found for Chemistry and Physics and they explain things really clearly.
My school uses a terrible Oxford one for maths but it has a lot of mistakes in and has stopped being sold officially now because of this. For Chemistry
and Physics we have the course companions but I don't find those particularly easy to read. They have useful information but they're not well written in

www.ibdamned.com covers this topic nicely IB Textbook reviews.
It hasn't been updated in a while, but it's still very useful

For physics-K.A Tsokos+ Ib study guide(OSC is optional)
For maths- Haese and Harris(Best, Trust me, No mistakes compared to oxford)(Refer to both though)
For chemistry-buy the IBID press one+ the OSC one(study guide optional)
Your way to perfect scores..Do remember to do past papers though.
