Covers everythIng very thoroughly, but I'm still finding it a challenge to learn everything. I wouldn't say it's for 'Dummies'. It's more for the 'Somewhat Intelligent', but definitely covers it all.

My first SLR camera was purchased to take pics of homes for the ral estate business as my wife and i are bothe agents. There is certainly a large learning curve from the old point and shoot and we found that the Nikon D5100 for Dummies helped us get going faster. There is a lot to learn and we find by reading the chapters as prplems arises aaaais very beneficial.
