A very good resource can be found here:
If you focus on soil analysis this resource could be helpful:
I could also recommend the book http://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783642309410 with which I worked extensively. It covers the soil chemistry very well.
I really enjoyed reading "Essential Soil Science" by M.R Ashman and G.Puri.
Seems to be easy to get online as a pdf as well.
