Can anybody suggest me is this book "J2EE WebServices - by Richarf Haefel" would be helpful?

Is this book sufficient to prepare for Web Services Certification or any other could be more comprehensive?

The book by Richard Monson-Haefel is a very good introduction to web services, even if it is slightly outdated.
Personally, I read the book first and then started reading the specification documents (SOAP, WSDL, WS-I BP etc). To me, reading the specification documents first would have been too difficult.
Best wishes!

You can use the following for SCDJWS(Old) :-
1. J2EE Web Services book by Monson Haefel
2. Mikalai Zakin's tutorial for Web services
3. Any mock exams like Whizlabs and practice
