5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job 3 Feb 2014
By RC
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like all guides in this series (U3A) one is not deluged with too much information in any one go. I don't know whether the book would be of use to study prior to getting an iPad. I found that, having set up my iPad with the assistance of one who was conversant with the procedure and getting to grips with the basics, the book proved invaluable as a reference manual.
At least you can then make up your mind re how to proceed. Information is given in logical steps together with staging posts where one can ensure that information covered in that section has been absorbed. There is a minimum of techno speak. Yes, I would recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful reference book 25 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I rate this publication as three stars - it is one of three similar publications we purchased to fathom the mysteries of a new iPad Mini. Experience has shown, in Windows at any rate, that no one book answers all the questions. Even with the facility of web page searches for help, the 'hard copy' word is worthwhile. Thus this is a useful backup. It will doubtless end up as a shelf filler but in the meantime it lies within arms reach! It is a larger, comfortable format and pleasant to use.

Whilst I found the book quite informative I feel that the writers assumed too much IT knowledge in the readers skills. A much more basic approach was needed in some areas. However on the whole the book was a useful buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars IPad for the Older and Wiser 31 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is the best of the bunch to help us to understand our IPads and to get the most out of it.
I would recommend this to anyone of any age who is keen to get to grips with this system of communications.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Edition 6 Jun 2014
By Tinker2
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I previously purchased the 3rd edition of this book which does not cover the current model iPad Air, I did not appreciate this at the time of purchase. The book did however give me the basics of iPad ownership and use and in this respect it proved to be very helpful. I have just ordered the 4th Edition which does cover the iPad Air so hopefully i will be able to get a fuller appreciation of the iPad which we own.
If anyone would like my copy of Edition 3, I would be pleased to pass it on for just the cost of postage.
