How to Select, Copy, and Paste Text on the iPad
Press and hold over the text you want to copy. After around 2 seconds a magnified view appears and the word it intends to select is highlighted in blue.
Move the magnifier around until it highlights the word you want, then let go.
Tap the Copy button that appears above the selected text.

To select longer text:

Drag the blue bars at the beginning and end of the selected word or text. A magnifying bar will appear to make it easier to find the exact beginning or end of the selection.

Tap the Copy button that appears above the selected text.

Touch and hold. Then it will highlight the area. Then it will fuck up the actual thing you want to highlight and select something you don't want. Then  you will have to untouch/unhold. Do this about 25-30 times until sufficiently angry.
