4.0 out of 5 stars The answer to a maiden's prayer? 14 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having presented my wife with an iPad Mini, the different operating system & other novelties caused some head scratching, so it was off to the local library to get on the waiting list for this publication, which turned out to be for the older model iPad. We then found this version and it arrived with the usual Amazon celerity. It is proving a useful interim Bible until we master the amazing little iPad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would recommend 2 April 2014
By bluesky
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book. Bought it along with my new mini iPad and although that contains an online manual, the book has provided invaluable help and useful tips. Very easy to understand and would recommend to anyone who has never used an iPad before.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not great 4 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bit too technical for a true computer dummy such as my wife! For me, quite a good book but I didn't need it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a helpful book! 22 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I bought my Mac I also bought Mac for Dummies, which has proved almost useless and never successfully answered any question I posed. However this book is completely different and has managed to solve all my problems so far; hence the 4star rating as it may not prove 100% in the future! Therefore, so far, good value for money.
