New to iPad. This volume will bring you up to speed.
(I’m helping to develop and implement digital literacy classes at the library, specifically focusing on iPads, so you’ll see me adding a bunch of iPad books in the future.)

This is a wonderful book for someone who has never used an iPad before. I like that it has simple, step by step instructions and color photos. It starts with the very basics and builds from there. I'll definitely recommend this to students who want to learn more about the iPad on their own.

I personally felt this book was written for someone who has no computer skills at all. Seniors could fit into that category, but there are many seniors who do know more than others. I felt that the book was too basic and didn't answer some of the questions I had. That being said, I'm sure it's a good book for a very beginning Senior who needs to learn how to navigate the iPad.

Not much in this book that you could not obtain but just trying things out. Maybe the second version is better. I just found out there is an updated version here on Goodreads.

You don't have to be a senior (I may or may not be one) to get help from this book. As with most Dummies books, it delivers information with clarity. I found it helpful.

Fairly helpful
Somewhat helpful getting started on my new iPad2...but all the examples were for REALLY old people. Who of my friends would be downloading music by Susan Boyle? haha

Good overall ipad book. The seniors part comes down to two chapters, one on accessability and one on ipad apps. I didn't find them very valuable. But...if you have an new ipad and you want a good overall intro to the subject and what it can do, the book is clear and well written with good pictures where needed.
