Contains great amount of information to guide for iPad usage. Even though iPad is somewhat self-taught or self explanatory, but there are many tricks/shortcuts which are unknown to the user. To me, this dummies guide certainly is very helpful, plus I can pinpoint my area of particulars within the book. Love it.

If it wasn't for this book, my iPad may have ended up in the trash! Found this book to be my answer to so many of the problems I was having trying to understand my new iPad. I still refer to it on occasion, but not very often anymore as it just made understanding the device so easy......if you are new to an iPad~~~this is the book to buy. None better.

I first bought "My iPad Mini" based on Amazon reviews. It was O.K. but I still had unanswered questions so I bought this, too. Much more complete and informative and has answered most of my questions.

They presume that everyone knows the terminology. This is definitely not the case they need to have a instruction book but start from scratch explaining every terminology and what it means. It is definitely not worth the money. They also presume that you have a computer, this is also not the case. Very disappointed!

I love these "Dummies" books; the authors for the iPad mini Dummies book are witty and make it so easy to understand for those of us who have never used an iPad, iPod, or anything like them. Thanks!
