This book is a comprehensive feature by feature description of the IPad 2. It even gives advice about accessories one may acquire such as covers, screen protectors, headphones, etc. I also found it useful as a reference book. Recommended..

I have learned to navigate on my Nook Color and HD. The iPad operates a little differently. IPad for Dummies made learning the new things easier. Read it on the nook, practice on the iPad. Great idea!

This Dummies book is now on my reference shelf and I refer to it when I'm stuck or can't find an answer in the on-line materials. I've also loaned it to friends and family who refused to admit they needed a Dummies book .
