Hi, my whiteboard skills are pretty bad..let it be handwriting, or when I see the board my mind goes blank..its easier to do it on laptop or notebook... thinking of buying a whiteboard and practice at home. Have any of you bought it? If yes, what should be the dimensions..

TC: gt 100k, I am from Midwest, too bad in LC/whiteboard so judge me all if you want to..

    It seems wasteful just to do it like that. I’d stay late in the office and use their whiteboard when you are done with work and no one is around. Otherwise just practice on a large paper.

      You have two options, a pin or just tape it on a table. If you want to tape it on the wall you can try scotch tape. They usually don’t ruin modern wall paint unless you tape it for a year.

    Got one from craigslist for $20. It was 4 ft x 4 ft so large enough to practice one problem on. It was very useful!

    Just paint a whole wall with whiteboard paint. But remember which wall you painted.

      Do it on the back of your bedroom door. Should be fine. Landlords usually paint the apartment anyway after a tenant leaves.

      To err is human. If you forget the edges and accidently touch the apartment wall with marker, the damage is done.

    It should be around half of the size of your pull-up bar. Also TC or GTFO

    Did you know that even Google will let you chose a Chromebook for coding interviews these days? Whiteboards used to be the norm, but I think people are moving on slowly.

    It's just inefficient to use a whiteboard. Most people can type much faster than they can write on a whiteboard.

      System designs are for whiteboards.

    It’s worth it. Also worth it to write shit on it when you take phone screens such as tips for positivity when taking them. I find them helpful. Or you can write shit on them for things you are weak at or can’t remember.

    Also good to use for whiteboarding practices it has multiple utilities.

    Go to a University surplus sale, I've gotten super cheap whiteboards before. Also, just hang with command strips, easy to hang, easy to get off, and if you use enough they hold a crap ton of weight.
