It is worth to have a professional Java certification under your belt. However, its worth varies across roles and situations.
If you are beginner or planning to switch jobs, a professional certification will certainly help you to get noticed. Certified professionals can also command better salary than their equivalent, non-certified peers. Picture this - You can compare a certification with a professional degree. One is likely to consult an architecture with a degree than to consult one without a degree.
Apart from the visibility, your journey to prepare for certification adds a lot to your knowledge and expertise on Java. When I prepared for my first Java certification, way back in 2001, I was amazed how my knowledge about Java programming improved. It also helped me to answer interview questions on Java with ease.

I believe every book has its own positives and negatives.
In my book, I always try to encourage readers to look beyond what they read. I encourage them to write and execute code snippets. 'Twist in the tale' exercises that are included in my book show how small changes to code can result in big difference in the code output.
