Accreting white dwarf binaries, constitute laboratories to study accretion flows, gas dynamics, outflows, transient outbursts, and explosive nuclear burning under a variety of astrophysical plasma conditions in relation with LMXBs and AGNs. Recent space-based spectral and timing studies, along with recent surveys indicate that we still have observational and theoretical complexities yet to answer. I will concentrate on Cataclysmic Variables discussing important X-ray observations and analysis that helps to study accretion physics in intermediate polars, dwarf novae, the nova-like systems. I will elaborate on the optically thick-thin disk transition conditions, the disk wind models and how accretion phase may shape the thermonuclear eruptions on the surface of WD binaries as observed from X-ray observations. In addition, I will discuss how flickering variability studies in X-rays can be probes to determine accretion history.
