Are you referring to learning Reporting Services (you added the MS SQL Reporting topic) or T-SQL?

For T-SQL I always recommend the black books by Itzik Ben-Gan [Amazon].

As for SSRS, any book in this list with at least four stars: SQL Server Reporting Services [Amazon]

@ValentinoV and @elchuru: Thanks for the resources.
I do have SQL and Reporting Services knowledge. I want to dive deep into the subject so that I can write complex codes for SQL and generate reports based on those complex queries. I am more interested in example or cases approach. Any idea about learning SQL for developing Financial reports?

In that case the following book should be interesting to read and it's packed with examples: Microsoft SQL Server 2012 High-Performance T-SQL Using Window Functions

As for SSRS I think you'll find this an interesting page: Reporting Services Recipes Book Downloads (Robert Bruckner)

It contains the samples that go with the book mentioned on the page.  Both book and samples are really interesting to study and understand.
