In this paper, we study the oscillatory behavior of solution of second order neutral dierence equation with mixed neutral term of the form
(an(zn)) + qnx(n) = 0; n 2 N0; where zn = xn + bnxn􀀀l + cnxn+k and 1P
= 1. We obtain some new oscilla-tion criteria for second order neutral dierence equation. Examples are presented to illustrate the main results.
