I already know the so called "core java" topics. Now, i thought i will try a little android for fun.
I am not sure what books are the best or which is a better method of study.

Is is good to learn by seeing other people's code, modifying it and later making your own thing using
some of the code taken from various sources ?

Or just pick up a book and do the projects there ?

Start here for the tools ...

http://developer.android.com/tools/sdk/tools-notes.html

This also contains samples, emulators etc..

Thanks, will look at it. But, i get jittery when I hear about official docs. They are generally not the best for beginners.
Any more sources as an alternative ?

You can look for books like "The Android Developer's Cookbook" and "Android in Action". They all assume you are familiar with Java.
