This book does not assume the reader has any prior experience with iPads or iOS. The labeled screenshots--numbered dots corresponding to numbered points in the text descriptions--are very helpful in showing the reader where to find certain settings.
If you have a new iPad in late 2013/early 2014, you will be using iOS7, so be sure to get a book like this one that was written for iOS7.
Is it better to get this in e-book or hard copy format? This question cuts both ways. It is very helpful to always have it with you on the iPad. But on the other hand, tablet computers don't multitask as well as laptop computers; if you have this on the tablet in e-book format, when you want to try something out such as change a setting, you will have to temporarily exit the e-book app and go hunting on the iPad for the feature with which you want to experiment, then return to the e-book app. On the other hand, you will get good at iPad navigation doing this! Still if I had it to do over again, I think might have learned faster if I'd bought this in published book format rather than e-book, because there were many times when I had to keep referring back to the e-book app, sometimes several times on a page. (Maybe I need both formats!)
All in all, an excellent value and highly recommended.
