Bumping this now I've split it from the irrelevant thread it was attached to, as someone may have recommendations.

I don’t know any good books but my thoughts are that the test is about first managing risk and then about best practice. When I’ve sat the tests it always makes me think about how significantly my perspective changed when I moved from support work to managing services, I went from a very narrow client focused view to a very broad view of services where I now had to take other clients, staff, stakeholders and the service as a whole into account. I think this broader perspective really helped me in getting through the SJT because the situations presented are often bigger than the client themselves. So with that in mind I would suggest meeting with your manager or supervisor following any incident within the service and ask them about their priorities/key considerations in responding to the incident and what policies they may have referred to to inform their response.
I would familiarize myself with any policy about risk not just to clients but to staff and the service (like reputations damage) e.g. disciplinary policy, code of conduct, health and safety (violence against staff) etc
