i actually have heard of the ieee but not the other things you have said i will and i know some professors at my college who teach classes about java programming but im earning networking as a major so i cant take them but i will ask them about how they started out
If you're a college student still you can join the IEEE for $40. Part of your benefits will be access to O'Reilly Media's vast catalogue of excellent books. Once you've read one without purchasing it you've paid for your subscription for the year.
I've never heard anything bad about the Headfirst book you already own, but like Billy pointed out anything that promises decent results with minimal work is going to be subpar. The titles you stated should be fine. Power through it. Look up anything that confuses you somewhere else since you may find an explanation that speaks better to you. Go to your school's tutoring center, if they have one, they may be able to point you towards resources that helped them understand it.
As far as programming for mobile devices goes. Android uses a specific Software Development Kit (SDK) which is in Java, but you will need to know the ins and outs of the language in general before you do something specific like that. That said... There's this route as well; the MIT App Inventor. I seriously doubt it will make very strong apps without some knowledge of Java, but my college offers a course in it for non-Computer Science majors so it may just help you out as well. Plus the site comes with various tutorials and whatnot.
Hope this all helps.
