    Helpful And Complete

    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 .

    Covers more details than the Users Manual

    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..
