ONLY 2 erasable boards?? [#permalink] New post 25 Jan 2006, 07:33
I had my Ultimate practice test at the Pearson Center but i was only given 2 erasable boards at a time. Once i am done with them, i have to raise my hand and wait till the guy to come and give me 2 new ones.

But i have also heard other ppl were given more than 2 boards at a time. I am not here to blame the tester and request them to write again, i am just blaming Pearson for such unprofessional misconduct.

Does anyone has the same experience?

I got an erasable board workbook. I think it had about 5 sheets so about 10 long pages in total.

How was the tip of the pen? Fine? Thin?

I think from other postings they provide fine tip pens.

Has anyone taken the test in Reading or London, how many erasable sheets did they provide?

I like to suggest everyone to laminate a few sheets of graph paper at your own cost for practice. Purchase a fine tip marker while you're at it. This way, you'll feel more comfortable with the whole idea when you turn up at the test centre.

You get 10 erasable boards, which are really like laminated pieces of 11 x 17 pieces of paper, and a very fine tip marker.

Thanks for your suggestion ywilfred.

I bought the following and made my own erabasle board, just to get the feel of it. These may not be the same as the PVUE ones.... thought I would share this with you guys anyway...

Stick the 8.5x11 sheet to a hard board (card board) and you have an erasable board!
Although the pen is described as Fine point one, I didn't find it fine enough to my liking. There is an Ultrafine pen that I saw online, but the local store didn't have it.
