Wiley’s ‘The iPad for Dummies’ is the latest and currently eighth edition of this long-running series within a series book title. In essence, it is the manual that Apple did not include. With 360+ pages, there is sufficient content to satisfy those who own or use an iPad and those who are planning to purchase one. The book is very well priced and easily affordable.

Everything you needed to knowcabout your iPad but were afraid to ask….

How can you fault the excellent resource that is a ‘dummies’ book? The formula for these books is tried and tested – a super detailed contents section, broken down in great detail, headings and subheadings in clear and colourful fonts, use of understandable icons, lots of screenshots, photos and a comprehensive subject index at the rear. The formula works and this particular 2016 published title is in its 8th editionand is ready to introduce you to the latest iPads and their operating system.

A practical guide that builds confidence.

This is clear and concise in what it is discussing.

Unusually for ‘Dummy’ books – it is in colour! (sorry ‘color’ as you will see.)

Good clearly written book with simple and detailed explanations, plus lots of tips.

Useful, Not Essential

 on 27 March 2016

This book follows the traditional iPad format in that it is a complete manual which takes the reader from the very basics through to more sophisticated issues. Notably it’s the information which Apple do not include with their products. I am a self learnt user of iPads, having researched and used features when I needed them. It’s an approach which works for iPads as there is so much about them on line. However, this is a useful book to have to hand as an additional resource and the most valuable aspect is the comprehensive index which is an excellent starting point for issues.

A very good easy to read and use intro to the iPad series of tablets

iPad For Dummies

Good for beginners and longer term owners alike

Amazingly (to me at least) when you buy an iPad it doesn’t come with any instructions, manual or ‘quick-start guide’, this isn’t unique to iPads or Apple products of course but it does seem regrettable to me. You can of course look on line for any queries but it seems to me that my wife and I haven’t really ever got to grips with anything other than the basics on our shared iPad even after owning it for 18 months. Therefore I was grateful to get the chance to look at this “Dummies’ guide to the iPad and I notice that there is also an “iPad for Seniors For Dummies”, which may have been the more appropriate guide for an oldster like me.

Exploring and Experimenting

 on 3 March 2016
By D. Elliott
I normally use my PC laptop for computer functions, especially where the keyboard is vital, but often I ‘borrow’ my wife’s iPad because it is so quick and handy to check e-mails or browse the net. Unfortunately I am not sufficiently au fait with the iPad (or any other digital device!) to make use of the tremendous computing power available, and I have to discover features on my own – there is no manual with the iPad and ‘help’ enquiries seem limited – so I have to ‘suck it and see’ via screen touching, sliding and dragging. I was smugly satisfied by the ‘Introduction’ to ‘iPad for Dummies’ which acknowledges how iPad users can make solid progress by exploring and experimenting on their own.

This is a superb resource for any iPad user.

Wow – this is a very in-depth, comprehensive guide to the iPad. I previously reviewed the Seniors version of this guide (as I am a senior!) and was expecting something similar but with more of the bells and whistles. But this is a completely different kettle of fish altogether – and the font is a lot smaller! For me, a new iPad user, this book has been a superb follow-up to the ‘for seniors’ version. There was some overlap but this book goes much further and expects you to have a little bit of basic general experience of hand-held devices.

A worthwhile read if inevitably focussed on the world according to Apple

Like all of the so-called Dummies books I’ve seen, this is well written, easy to access and contains information even an experienced iPad user will find worth knowing. Recently update to catch-up with Apple’s ever evolving product line (and already slightly out of date) it is written in US English and covers a range of practical if apple-centric topics. I work across multiple platforms so use few native apple apps when google alternatives are available, for example. I also use the Kindle app to read ebooks, not the apple iBook platform as an example.
