View Working Around Broken Google Calendar Sync for IPad
So, after you've fought your way through setting up Exchange calendar sharing on your iPad, you will quickly discover it's only showing you your base calendar and not any you might have shared.
If you try to go to http://m.google.com/sync and set up calendar sharing on your iPad, it won't work because it doesn't recognize your user agent. I'm guessing they'll have this fixed shortly, but in the meantime:
On a desktop Safari installation, enable the debug menu, set the user agent to iPhone, and disable JavaScript. From there, visit http://m.google.com/sync. It will want you to sign in to your Google account, if you have not done so already. (I'm sure you could also do this with Firefox and a user-agent switcher.)
Select your iPad and the calendars you want to share; if you've done everything else right with your iPad (set up push, etc) it should work.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
