Hi guys,
what is the best way to practice coding?? "Do coding" will be the last answer that I expect.
I mean which book should I refer to, where can I get the exercises from and all that..

You can yourself think of small requirements such as student grade system, store ERP software and try developing it.
Make sure the code follows Code Conventions and get it evaluated.

Games are great for practice.

Set yourself the challenge of making a game such as tic-tac-toe, quarto or even chess. Make your first task to be able to play the game through the console. Then try adding a GUI. You should also add multiplayer through LAN. Finally you can attempt writing a computer AI for the game.

You can learn a lot of different things from such a challenge. The project usually also becomes big enough that you have to learn how to structure it well.
