Both the Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates (K&B) book and Khalid Mughal book are good. Whatever is covered in K&B is enough for the exam. Khalid Mughal book also covers all the topics of the exam. So both are enough for the exam...

Yea, Khalid Mughal book has more detail than K&B, but I don't know whether those are related to the SCJP.

solve all the questions from the K & B book
and take the exams from ExamLab simulator for SCJP 6
If you score low in the mock exams
do not get disturbed, choose this tool as the preparation tool and not the testing tool
If you get about 50% in ExamLab, you will surely pass the real exam

Harmeet, you can start with the Master Exam that comes with K&B book, then you can go for Examlab, Inquisition etc.

Vasiq, the decision whether to read Khalid Mughal book is completely your own. If you don't have time, you can skip it and start giving mock exams...
