Head first Java is not a certification book. If you are new to java and don't have any prior java knowledge, then Head first java is fine.
However, if you are quite comfortable with java, then you can start K&B or Khalid Mughal directly for 1.4 without looking at Head first java or thinking in java or any other java book.
