Hi vc84,

I called the ADA and they said I would get a white board but when I went to my Prometric Center I got yellow scrap paper and pencils...so strange!!

I actually went out to Staples and BOUGHT a dry erase board and pens to practice with...just stay calm and confident - you will do great!!

Yeah but it sucks to keep having to erase the board!
I called the test center where I am going to take it and he told me about the dry erase boards, I even asked if the other center which is close by does it too and he said they only have dry erase boards too..:mad: I just hope its not tooo small, and hopefully the pens are thin

At my test center, I received a booklet of about 6 or so blue pages along with 2 pencils. My advice to those using white boards is to write small so you don't have to erase it as often. If you keep it organized enough, it shouldn't be much worse than using a paper booklet.
