Route Parameters AngularJS

As I am learning AngularJS, I came to know about that we can embed parameters into the route path.

So the web page will look like      localhost/#/books/12345.

I know it is making my life easy in coding as I can go to 5-6 screens easily by giving parameter in URL.

Is it a good practice to show ID=12345 in a web page? Let me know the advantages or disadvantages, if any?

I think it's all about Search Engine Optimization
You can use both.
The main difference between query-string (?) and path(/) parameters.
there's no order with query-string : ?id=10&name=beef same as ?name=beef&id=10
where the order is important with path parameters, route is not the same using :
/name/beef/id/10

so use a path parameter to define your angualr route and optionnaly, if needed, query string parameter

don't forget to take a look to the ui-router project, I'm 99% you are going to move to this router instead the ng-route (whihc is now in a separate file as your know)

Thanks for the info! Another question, I wanted to check if in  real app should the user see that he made a search with id/10 or whatever number. My concern is if I can go to a page using id/10, anyone would be able to go to that data using id/10. How do I control that only specific user can request this information?

no, you made a request to the server for the view, it check user session, if it found a valid session it send back the view/data else it fail and your throw the error with angular to display an appropriate page
