Intermittent non-start

I'm having intermittent starting problems with a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire. Basically, you turn the key over and nothing happens. The battery tested bad and the battery cables were 'shaky' so I replaced them. The problem persists.......most times, after several attempts, the vehicle will start.

Any suggestions on what to try next?

You can try tapping the starter body carefully with a hammer (don't hit anything that will break off). If it then starts - bad starter.
