  1. I recently have finished up a class using this book. I will start off by saying that this book is GREAT for beginners, however, there are some issues. I came upon quite a few errors in my projects that really had no reason to exist. Come to find out, there were simple fixes such as using the clean function in Eclipse. I can’t say that I have seen that mentioned anywhere. I also would like to say that there was one application that we were assigned. It was the Piggy bank one. I completed this application and was happy with it at the time. Now I was at the end of the class and I discovered a problem. In the Piggy Bank application, we had four EditText Boxes. Well come to find out, you cannot parse an empty EditText. Well there was nothing in the previous chapters mentioning the idea of checking to make sure that the EditText boxes are empty or not. I had to look up myself to find a way to say that if the EditTexts were empty, to count them as zero. still, I do like the design of the book and it has been a great help to me. If it wasn’t so expensive, I think I would give the more comprehensive version a go.

  2. This book makes is easy to understand how to code for Android apps! You can learn on your own with this book!
