Book review: Raspberry Pi for Dummies

Exif_JPEG_PICTURERaspberry Pi for Dummies is a nice clear unofficial guide to the Raspberry Pi.
(See also Raspberry Pi User Guide)

I haven’t actually tried any of the things in the book yet as I am still getting around to ordering a 700mA PSU and USB hub to get my Pi going (oh for more time).

Chapters vary from initially connecting and starting a Raspberry Pi, though using Raspbian, downloading apps, starting the word processor and image manipulating software, playing music and videos, programming in Scratch, then programming in Python, connecting external hardware for embedded computing, and even making external hardware for a game

A good swift well-written scan across the things you can learn with Raspberry Pi, well matched to the computer’s educational remit, probably better for adults and motivated teenagers.
