It depends on which SCWCD exam you are intending to give. The study Kit covers the current version of the exam and it is an excellent book to have for that exam, i used it for my preparation.
Sun are bringing a new version of the SCWCD exam, which is in beta at the moment, this exam is supposed to be significalntly harder and has the 1.4 topics such as filters, JSTL etc - for this exam the Head First SCWCD book is the best thing as it is written for this version of the exam, however, this book will not be available for some time (as far as I know).
HTH
