Format: Paperback
“iPad For Seniors For Dummies” written by Nancy C. Muir is quite similar to “iPad For Dummies” by Bob LeVitus, another recently issued book in the …For Dummies series.
Both books for their theme have iPad device, allowing the reader to learn in the shortest time how to use iPad Air, iPad with Retina Display, iPad 2 and earlier iPad models.

“iPad For Seniors For Dummies” puts special emphasis on the elderly, therefore in certain topics entering deeply into the detail, that is reasonable considering the audience it addresses, that are not used to gadgets and all technological revolution that has occurred in recent years.
Although I'm not part of the audience for whom this book is written, I especially like its beginning where the author in an intuitive and user-friendly way is explaining how to choose the model of the iPad and its accessories, together with all of their characteristics on which attention should be paid depending on the user's interests.

After such interesting start, the authors in second big chapter included information about most important options setting, about Internet browsing and e-mail communication, how to get social with your cool gadget, how to purchase things and what are the most useful applications that can be found in App Store.
In following chapter, audio / video media is discussed, how to use iPad as e-book reader, how to play music and browse photos, watch videos and play games.

The author addresses in a step by step fashion how to use an ipad. I only wish I had it when I first bought mine. Each day I try to learn a new chapter. Soon I feel I will become much more proficient and at ease with this new technology. This is a fantastic book for seniors.

Never though I would 'resort' to Dummies. But-- I did! Not until I had downloaded a hundred pages of the iPad how-to manual. Printer ran low on ink resulting in a dim copy so I called Amazon and Zippo! There it was. BUY THIS BOOK! Quick track to enjoying your iPad. Nancy's tutoring is-- almost as easy as having my high-tech grandson doing personal instruction! The book is definitely a TEN.

I am only just beginning to use this book, but have been quite impressed with the clarity of the information so far. I am skipping to the exact process I am trying to perfect on the Ipad. I definitely recommend the book.

I wish I had it a month ago when I first received my IPad. I had to call Apple support several times since no directions came with the IPad. This answers my every question & it has helped me enjoy this new gift so much more now.
