4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for those with very little java experience
Good book for the beginners to Android. A little understanding of Java help you to flip through this book quite fast.

1.0 out of 5 stars Was great ... for its time.
The layout of the book is great, and fantastic; but with the screenshots etc done the way he did it, he basically
locked it into that period of time, with those software versions.

I couldnt follow along with newer software, screens didnt match up and i couldnt find what he was looking for many times.
and had to skip it; by about half way in the book...

The layout of the book is great, and fantastic; but with the screenshots etc done the way he did it, he basically
locked it into that period of time, with those software versions.

I couldnt follow along with newer software, screens didnt match up and i couldnt find what he was looking for many times.
and had to skip it; by about half way in the book i started lacking skill to keep up "because i was skipping so much content"
but its just not my fault. Even though it was written 11 months ago - all the software he used is now out of date
and if he didnt lock the books progress so closely in that way it would be fine.

but when he says click here, and the button or option isnt there, and you spend 30mins trying to find it
that just makes it a waste of time.

i quickly took it back to the library.
