My iPad 2 (covers iOS 5) (3rd Edition) This book is brilliant - clear, step-by-step instructions written in plain English rather than computer jargon, together with corresponding pics/diagrams. In the day and a half I've had this manual I've learnt more than over the past 6 weeks - which was mostly by trial and error. It's a real must-have for any new iPad 2 owner who's been stumbling around in the dark!

I will admit that i had to skip over the first few pages since i had already figured some stuff out. Its very basic (which i do like); i found little bits here and there that were useful. I havent finished reading it but i definitely reccomend this book for new IPAD users. Its kind of a "why not?" book because who wouldnt want to make the most out of something as awesome as the IPAD2. If you got your IPAD2 after the summer of 2011 get this book. Well worth the money!! I LOVE APPLE!

I love my apple products, but they are light in the how to explanation areas. This book gives some great tips on how to do things with your iPad 2 that you might have never learned. Clear and consise. A worthy purchase.

The iPad 2 is my first Apple device. Because all my prior computer experience is with PCs and the Kindle Fire, I needed an excellent computer manual to get quickly up to speed with the iPad 2. This book, MY iPAD 2, turned out to be a terrific choice. It's probably the only iPad guide I'll ever need.

MY iPAD 2 consists of full-color photos and screen shots of iPad 2 hardware and displays. The screen shots are accompanied by brief (but more than adequate) descriptions of what the icons and menus will accomplish. In particular, the "Getting Started" chapter does a fabulous job of familiarizing you with all the buttons and switches, as well as all the screen gestures that you'll need to know about and use.

Subsequent chapters have screen shots with step-by-step instructions on how to actually DO things with the iPad 2. The topics covered are: customizing the iPad 2, networking and syncing, playing music and video, reading books, setting up a calendar and contacts, surfing the web, using email and social networks, taking and viewing photos, recording videos, writing documents, using spreadsheets, making presentations, navigating with maps, purchasing and choosing good apps, using popular apps (e.g., Skype), and selecting and using the best iPad accessories (e.g., cases, docks, wireless keyboards).

Sometimes it's necessary to page through quite a few pages in order to find what you're looking for, because the Index, although decent, could be a lot better. For example, the explanation on how to group home screen icons together to save space (using folders) is buried on pp. 288-289 in a late chapter on "The World of Apps", and is indexed under G ("grouping . . . apps into folders").

My wife and I are delighted with this 3rd Edition of My iPad 2. The coloured illustrations are excellent and are well coordinated with the numbered instructions. My wife and I cut our teeth on the 2nd Edition and are pleased with the update.
