Neither sentence is correct. "Can you suggest a good English textbook for me? I have to study it myself." You've misunderstood the present perfect grammar rule, where you would use "have studied". However, "have to" is an obligation and a completely different grammar rule. The base form of the verb is needed: "have to study". There are a few grammar rules which use "have" differently, so be aware that one single rule doesn't apply to "have".
