Official guides are the best for GMAT, however not the best for your purpose. If you want to practice the graphs - simply find MBB presentations online and practice deriving the conclusions.

Other sources - GMAT IR part (Official guide and Manhattan prep, "Consulting Bible" and "Vault guide for consulting" - check the chapters on cases with graphs in these books

Good luck!
