I wish I had this when I first got my iPad
If you received the iPad Air from Santa, this new edition (6th edition) should be on your reading list. If you have updated your old iPad with iOS 7, this volume may provide you with new insights.

“iPad For Dummies” prepared by Edward C. Baig and Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus is another book in the For Dummies series, that this time for its topic has iPad device – enabling reader to learn in the shortest time possible how to use this interesting gadget.

The authors are not talking just about the device, but also about applications and programs with which some nice things can be done on iPad that is nice add-on.
Though I'm not a regular reader of this book series, so I can compare it with the few ot
iPad for Dummies falls in to the trap of a lot of the Dummies books - it takes a simple subject and makes it even simpler, to the point where you start to feel like you're wasting your time by reading it. The concept is simple enough, and I'm not surprised that an iPad book has been released, but I was hoping for more practical tricks for the seasoned iPad user.

I was disappointed. Sure, it's a good idea for novices and the elderly, but even your great-grandmother would quickly get bored of readi

I have normally used any "iPad" generations with each iOS version update since July 2011.
I find the Dummies books helpful.
It's pretty typical for a book in the 'for Dummies' series. The pictures and instructions are clear and easy to follow.

I borrowed the book to try and address several specific issues. Unfortunately, the book didn't help me at all. I think it's mostly because the iPad is designed well with almost all settings and options self-explanatory. So while the book addresses common questions for iPad users, I don't think many users will require the book. Most will probably find the information on the iPad

This book was not that helpful.
I learned very little from the book. I learn much more on my own simply using the Ipad. The book was not focused on the Ipad. It coverd programs and apps. Wel to use these I must be skilled on the Ipad. Too little on the machine itself. I say skip the book and lern be trail and error.

Thought I had a pretty good handle on this but thought it wouldn't hurt to check it out. Actually gained quite a few little tips and tricks that make me love my ipad even more now!
Vraiment pour très débutants

Livres très bien fait, mais vraiment pour débutants et/ou personnes ayant du mal avec la technologie. Quelques "trucs" mais il s'agit surtout des bases.
Présentation agréable et pratique comme tous les livres de cette série 'pour les nuls", mais pas grand chose de plus que dans le didacticiel de l'iPad très bien fait également.

Told me pretty much what I needed to know, except about parental controls, which I found elsewhere. Knew much of it since I have an iphone, but there were good tips.
Very basic level. Would have appreciated more depth in the subject matter. Most of the tips that they have mentioned, have already found out, by trial'n'error :)
Really basic abbreviated overview of how to use your iPad. I'm sure the full edition has more information.

Actually there's nothing new to be learned from this book.
Not much to sayother than I love Dummy books!

Ticks all the boxes in DIY . Weak on apps.
