(1) The most comprehensive treatise on Vedic astrology is "Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra" (translated by R. Santhanam or G.C. Sharma). This is at best a reference book and not a book to learn from. But it is good to possess and refer to.
(2) First read "Hindu Predictive Astrology" by Dr. BV.Raman. This doesn't go into depth, but it covers a vast ground. It lays an excellent foundation for the rest of the reading.
(3) Then read Dr. BV.Raman's "How to judge a horoscope" (volumes 1 & 2). Don't bother if you can't remember it all. As you look into more and more charts, you will remember it all.
(4) After finishing (3) half way, start browsing through "Notable Horoscopes" by the same author.
(5) While reading (3) and (4), keep "Three Hundred Important Combinations" by the same author on your bookshelf. Whenever you encounter the name of a new "yoga", refer to this book and learn the details!

(7) Then read : "Crux of Vedic Astrology" by Sanjay Rath
(8) One must have Respect to Guru's and love and devotion to learn this Divine Science. (This is not available in any book store and you have to develop it on you own)

Of course, this knowledge is endless and there are many more good books - classical as well as contemporary - that will make for excellent reading.
