The HFS book is brilliant - it's very readable and written and organised in a style that's very conducive to cramming the information into your head. It also covers all the latest stuff for the 1.4 exam (the others cover 1.3).

I have also been using the SCWCD Exam Study Kit book as the bulk of it is still relevant for the new exam. I've been reading them slightly out of synch with each other so I get the fun, easy to understand version from HFS first and then recap a few days later with the more technical version from the study kit book.

If you can afford it, or if your employer is paying, then getting both might be helpful.
