If you look at the web site for the certification exam, on the Exam Preparation tab, SAS Global Certification program it explains that the 2 courses which prepare you for the exam are: Statistics 1 and Predictive Modeling using Logistic Regression. There are not any "prep guides" for this exam, so the only books that would be useful would be the course notes used in the classroom or Live Web version of the courses. Or, alternately, you could take the e-learning version of the courses. Or, you could just buy the course notes in the Bookstore, if you live in an area served by the Bookstore. Do note that both Statistics 1 and Predictive Modeling classes assume that the candidate has the basic SAS knowledge that you would learn by taking the Programming 1 class. Depending on where you are located, your local SAS office may have a different discount on the preparation for this exam. The discount offer for this exam in the US is here: Get Certification Training for Less.

Although there are no certification guides for that particular exam, there are always useful books by SAS users.
For example, you can currently purchase Pharmaceutical Statistics Using SAS®: A Practical Guide at a bargain price; for only $18.74 instead of the full price of $74.95 at this link: SAS Books - Inventory Sale
There are many other books by SAS users about statistics and modeling that might be helpful.
Simply look at the exam content here SAS Global Certification program and find the books that covers these subjects. Often times, the explanation in these books will be richer than anything you'll fund in the certification guides.
Hope that helps,
