Want to learn how to develop Android apps? Then don't miss our new book: Murach's Android Programming (2nd Edition). It teaches you how to develop high-quality apps like the ones you can find in the Google Play store. The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of Java. Everything else, including software installation, is covered.
To start, this book shows the Android Studio and Java skills you need to develop a Tip Calculator app for a smartphone or tablet. Then, it expands upon this app to show must-have Android skills such as working with layouts, widgets, events, themes, styles, menus, preferences, and fragments. Next, this book presents two more apps that illustrate Android skills programmers use every day, such as working with threads, files, adapters, intents, services, notifications, broadcast receivers, SQLite databases, content providers, and app widgets. Finally, this book presents an app that uses the Google Maps API and shows you how to submit your finished apps to the Google Play store.
The real-world apps let you see how the skills you're learning work together, and they illustrate how and when you'd use each skill. And all the content is presented in Murach's distinctive paired-pages style that developers find so clear and time-saving for both training and reference.
Wu uses a gentler approach to teaching students how to design their own classes, separating the coverage into two chapters. GUI coverage is also located independently in the back of the book and can be covered if desired.
Wu also features a robust set of instructors' materials including PowerPoint slides, code samples, and quiz questions.

Programming books can be confusing and incomplete.
Program listings often do not work until you have mucked around using trial and error.
I like to use books as reference after I have read them. Invariably, none of the books have the particular information that I want, nor do they have references to other information sources.
"Java Programming -- What Do You Want To Do?" changes all that. Inside there are clear instructions on how to do what you want to do -- Basic structures, graphics programming with AWT and NetBeans, Advanced structures, test preparation, networking, cell phone programming and much more.
