2.0 out of 5 stars not for the experienced 22 Jan 2012
By Sparky
Format:Paperback
This book is very light on technical information try
help.apple.com/ipad/5/interface on the ipad. it's free. and in my opinion far better. put the address into a desktop/laptop, and you get a full blown manual.

1.0 out of 5 stars Written BY Dummies 12 Sep 2012
By Artist
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a total waste of time. It is obviously written BY Dummies more interested in "Kool" stuff and merchandising kick-backs. It IS American, so enuff-said. I wanted information on two topics in particular which it did not address. Why DOES iTunes split up albums when tracks are by different composers?, and how to transfer and use documents from a PC into Mac. When I hit on the right password (like going into a plumbers merchants in the 50s) i.e. "Word Processor"....I found an App costing 2.49 that did all I wanted it to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Exploring iPad 2 For Dummies 7 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
The new look magazine format makes it easy scroll up your mag, zip it in your bag or briefcase and learn while on the go.

The large size images indicate areas on your iPad 2 which makes finding things so much quicker. Exploring iPad 2 for Dummies also features pull out features in large block formats down the side or across the bottom of the page.

These jump out at you and takes your eye quickly to highlighted features. For example ... on page 3 the author tells us the iPad screen rotates unless the screen is locked. It can be really irritating when the screen rocks back and forth as you move. We learnt how to orientate the iPad by double clicking on the 'Home Button' and swiping to the side to reveal the on-screen controls. A tap of the 'Rotation Lock' icon sorts this out quickly!

Page 8 has a double page spread on how to sync files to your iPad 2, all done in numbered diagrams so even the extreme novice will pick up the tips and advice. iHubbub dot com has given this a high score, see the full review on iHubbub > reviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good at previous Dummies 1 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read many of the IT Dummies books but did not find this Apple one as good as previous books. Perhaps that was because this is the first one that I have read on an Apple product as the previous ones that I have read have been on MS products.

I found there was too much jargon for a real dumb one like me. It seemed that the dialogue was for a reasonably competent computer user.
