Questions about HFSJ

a) some sites refer to this book as 'Head First Servlets and JSP' and some refer to it as 'Head First SCWCD'. Are they both same?
b) i've read some amazing reviews about this book. But the reviews i read were pretty old (around 2002). What is the latest edition of this book? does it cover expression language EL? does HFSJ cover all SCWCD objectives?
