hi friends,
How is Khalid Mughals' book for scjp 5.0 preparation?
Is it necessary that I should practice programming with the examples in the book?

Khalid Mughal is good book , with all the core concepts explained in details !
But I doubt , there is no edition of Khalid Mughal`s book for SCJP 5.0 , I found it for 1.4 exam .

and ofcourse, SCJP required lots of code practice.
and see the SCJP FAQ`s for start .

There is no version for the 1.5 exam. However the 1.4 is an excellent book that goes into more depth than most exam books.

I am not aware of a book updated for SCJP 1.5

You should try the SCJP 5 study guide by kathy sierra and Bert bates

thank you friends for the kind information......

But, Is K&B simple to understand?
How depth does it go with the concepts and examples?

K&B is simple to understand but it should be used as a first timer
because book is exam specific and skips lots of concept(but clkarifies a hell lot more) and writers themselves suggest that the book should be used with some previous java knowledge , if you do coding that would count,

but for exam perspective it is best book available, and more informative than any other java source I found

"Vidya TR",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!
