I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The online docs are always a great resource and place to start:
Tom Kyte's  Expert Oracle Database Architecture.

Is all about approaching problems correctly.  SQL included

The most important piece though, is simply practice.
You can read all of the books but until you've actually written a few dozen queries using the syntax and techniques it won't really be part of your thought processes when examining a problem.
