I think the place to start with collections is by learning the interfaces. For hashcode you need to know the basic hashcode/equals method contract - look at the java.lang.Object javadocs for the hashcode method, there is a nice summary there.
If I was looking for tutorials on Collections I would start at java.sun.com

Thomas Paul's great stuff, in the Javaranch Newsletter!

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
