What Order To Take Courses?

I've been here with Treehouse for a few months now and I love how easy it is t learn things that I had been looking for for quite some time. I'm here to learn how to develop my own Android Applications. Knowing that I'll have to have Java knowledge to build Android Applications, does this mean I should do the Java track first and then go to the Android Track?

Hey Lee,

So java is kind of new to tree house, it will certainly help to start with the java track, but the android track beginning will definitely give you a good start too. My advice would be start with the first thing in android, and it should flow pretty easily. Once you got a basic understanding of android, doing the java basics course will certainly help. But if you want to learn to build android apps your best bet at a first stop would be the android track.

Thanks, hope this helps.

It helps a lot, thank you. I was curious because I was attempting to bounce back and forth between the two because I definitely don't consider myself to be an intermediate programmer. I didn't know if I should do the Beginner level for them both and then go back for the intermediate or what haha I thank you so much for your input. Happy coding :)

With that in mind. Do you recommend that I completely restart so that I'm focused on one thing only?
