This should be "activity2.xml" instead "main.xml"

54 Error in Code
It says:
startActivityForResult(i, 1);

It should say:
startActivityForResult(i, request_Code);

The code will still work, since request_Code = 1, but it is better to use the constant.

151, 153 Error in Code
In the code in bold towards the bottom it says:
"Date selected:" + datePicker.getMonth() + 1 + ..... etc.

It should be:
"Date selected:" + (datePicker.getMonth() + 1) + .... etc

This will ensure that the "1" is added; otherwise the output looks like this (assuming the month of June (5) is picked: 51/1/11

With the fix above it will show: 6/1/11

Also on pg 153 in the "how it works" section.

159 Errors in Code
This line: setContentView(R.layout.main);

commented out, like this:
// setContentView(R.layout.main);

AND

Instead of using constants 0, 1 and 2, like this:

lstView.setChoiceMode(2); //CHOICE_MODE_MULTIPLE

You could also use:

lstView.setChoiceMode(ListView.CHOICE_MODE_MULTIPLE);


AND

This line:
setListAdapter(new ArrayAdapter(this,
                android.R.layout.simple_list_item_checked, presidents));

Should be bold.

5 187 Error in Menu Definition
The "Menus" application has the following menus defined:
menu.add(0,3,3, "Item 5");
menu.add(0,3,3, "Item 6");
menu.add(0,3,3, "Item 7");

This causes menus 5-7 to display
"You clicked on Item 4"

Should instead be:
menu.add(0,4,4, "Item 5");
menu.add(0,5,5, "Item 6");
menu.add(0,6,6, "Item 7");
