After debating with myself for several months if I really needed an iPad, I finally succumbed and along with the one hundred million other iPad owners purchased an Apple's third generation iPad.And even though I did own an iPod, I still felt insecure about the operation of my newest electronic toy. Without hesitation I looked to my old friend a For Dummies book and in particular iPad For Dummies 5th Edition to tutor me in the ins and outs of this awesome gadget with its striking Retina display. I wasn't disappointed with this excellent user's guide.Once again The Fifth Edition follows the usual For Dummies format in that it contains dozens of useful goodies and explanations enabling the reader to get the most out of the iPad and in addition technical jargon is kept to a minimum. As noted in the introduction, the manual makes generous use of numbered steps, bullet lists, and pictures. Web addresses are shown in a special monofont typeface. Also included are a few sidebars enabling the reader to further research particular topics. Noteworthy is that you can jump around from one topic to another and concentrate on only those issues that may have particular interest to you.The book divides itself into six principal sections: Getting to know your iPad, The Internet iPad, The Multimedia Ipad, The iPad at Work, The Undiscovered iPad and The Part of Tens. Each of these sections subdivides into several topics that include familiarizing yourself with the iPad's buttons, operations, surfing the web with the Safari web browser, how to use your iPad for music, video, movies, and photos, purchasing and using apps from the iTunes store, setting up your preferences with the iPad's internal settings, troubleshooting and favorite apps.
