Wait for updated course or just go along?

I'm thinking of just waiting till the updated course is uploaded if its soon enough. whats the approximate date you'll upload them? would be nice if you replied asap so i know whether to move on with these eclipse ones or wait for Android Tools.

It can be frustrating when you're new to something to work off an outdated tutorial, but if the changes are not TOO crazy it should be fine! I find that for myself when I have to figure out the changes it forced me to poke around and learn a little more. I would go for it and ask question when you can't find the answers.

I just finished that class Wajd, and I would recommend taking it now. People have left plenty of forum questions and advice, and I found it to be good practice to work through all of it. But don't be afraid to ask a question, there's a lot of them, and it won't be a walk in the park.
