A great learning tool, much better than anything published by Apple, or provided by the "One on One" service we purchased. Easy to use as a tool to discover what you want to know (appendix.) Decent price and shipped sooner than anticipated.
I'm a techie idiot, not just a dummy, but I can actually use my ipad mini now to take photos, send them to family and friends via email, keep up with facebook, listen to my favorite music downloads and check the local weather. All done after reading it for one week before my month-long vacay to Belize...now to learn how to text.
So far, so good. Just don't think I should have to purchase an instruction manual for a product. It should be included in the price. However, if I wanted to learn how to use the mini IPad, I had to purchase the manual.
Very helpful in learning to use the IPad Mini tablet. Nothing comes with the product from Apple and to me, it would have been difficult to learn to use without assistance. Would recommend this book to anyone who has no tablet experience or considers themselves a novice.
The last dummies book I will ever buy! All I wanted was music comparable to an Ipod and email. Go to Bluetooth chapter and they talk about Jambox speaker! Not how to pair up and play the music on a speaker. I didn't buy the book to get a review about Jambox. I could have looked that up for free on . Most of the time, these books talk about subjects as if you are familiar with them. Why do they say for Dummies? Because we are dumb enough to buy them!
I like it very much just find the reference Dummies not so good. Should be called for beginners. I am 80 yrs old and consider myself fortunate to still be willing to try something new.
Don't buy an iPad mini without also purchasing this book. It answered all my questions plus more. It's a great user guide that doesn't come with the iPad itself.
The format is easy to absorb and the information is appropriate for someone to learn to use the machine in the most efficient way.
