    Java, xml sql i guess occasionally but not really needed for all apps java is the main one you need. Eclipse has a nice android plugin that helps a lot so i recommend you get that as well

    "Hello Android" and "Hello World" would be a good start if you don't already know. The are tutorial/introduction books. I downloaded .pdf's off the web but hard copies aren't that expensive. Its just a pain with pdf's if you're not working on dual screens. Hope this helps get you going.
