Max, I see that you have received one SAS SQL book recommendation already. I hope that it works for you! When you are ready to step it up a notch, consider the following book by tireless SAS instructor, lecturer, and writer Kirk Paul Lafler:
PROC SQL: Beyond the Basics Using SAS
This is the seminal book on SAS SQL and remains my own personal favorite! Check it out.
Max, best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
