Have begun using material from this book to help me make use of my new Android-based tablet computer. I entered into tablet computer use almost totally naive about how they operate, perhaps because I've never had a "Smartphone" using screen touch controls. The book is well designed and has a lot of useful information and you can jump to particular chapters or sections to look into specific issues that arise. I am finding it to be a helpful reference book so far.

I have been reading "Dummy" books since DOS 3,and have many sitting on my bookshelf still. This is the first one that I have learned nothing. Two reasons I learned "nothing". Curiosity and time. I bought my tablet from a Wal Mart retail store. I poked and played around for a day or two, went to an Android group looking for answers. Still wanting some more answers I ordered this book. It took 10 days to get to me and in those 10 days I figured out the questions I had. My recommendation is for you to buy the book at the same time you buy a tablet. Then you may learn stuff quicker and justify buying the book. The book is so basic the author even describes how to use your fingernail to open a memory slot.
