It would help if you gave us a link or an ISBN number.

HF Java is an introductory book for Java, which is not focus on SCJP. Thus, you might need to buy Sun Certified Programmer And Developer For Java 2 .

Will HF Java be useful for SCJP 1.5 as HF EJB is definitely useful for all objectives of SCBCD exam?

Probably nope because Kathy has said before that HF Java is not aimed for us to crack SCJP.

Moreover, as the book will be released in Mar (hopefully), but SCJP Tiger beta will be hold on Jan, when the book releases, we have passed already (hopefully).
