- Jun 25, '12 by shopgirl571I just read this post and all I can say is I am going to the store and buying a white erase board!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never would have thought about doing this... I am starting my RN program again for the third time this fall and need all the help I can get... This idea is absolutely genius and am so excited about trying this... Please keep the ideas coming.. thanks again to all the fellow students out there...
- Jun 25, '12 by dsf43So I came across this thread... never tried this method of studying, but I am definitely going to go out and buy myself a board now! I feel like it will be a huge help towards studying, especially if I am pretending to "teach" someone else. The more you have to think and talk about it, the more it will stick in the long run. I do not have very good studying habits and can use all the help I can get when I start my program this fall. Thank you!
- Jun 25, '12 by kristajayeQuote from StephalumpBaby wipes work well for me.Since this post is full of white board lovers, anyone know how to get something uneraseable off of one?
I had an issue with one of our dry erase markers - it stopped being erasable and there's writing stuck on every white board in the house!
For those looking for a smaller portable board, check the dollar spot at Target in the late summer. We found lots of cute ones last year at back to school time.

- Jun 26, '12 by ARCTX85I love using white boards, especially for diagraming different aspects of a topic. It's been really useful for my 12-Lead EKG course in diagraming the hexoaxial plane. There are so many different views of the heart with using EKGs, it only makes sense to be able to just erase it once I've got the concept of one view and then move onto the next.

- Jun 26, '12 by PinkCupcakeI have to say I LOVE this idea. I too like to pretend like I'm teaching the information or giving a presentation and using a white board would be a big help. I'll be keeping my eyes open for sales. I assume with the back to school sales coming up I'm bound to get a good deal on one.
The only problem is going to be keeping the kids away from it! Thanks for the great ideas guys
- Jun 26, '12 by RNnme3jYouTube has a couple of DIY on making small dry erase boards (cute for young school aged kids during homework time)...but I have seen where you can purchase white dry erase board paint and transform a wall in your house...Do any of you guys know of a person who has tried this method yet? Making your board whatever size you want!! Hardware stores (Lowes, Home Depot, etc...) have dry erase boards you can have cut to your desired size as well. Just throwing out some cheaper ways if you want bigger boards I currently don’t use this method but I’m making preparation to begin this coming fall.
- Jun 27, '12 by BlessedShauna777I love my dry erase board!! I honestly dont know how I could have made it through organic chemistry with all those resonance structures and lonnngg formulas without having a couple of boards nailed around my apartment.
I honestly think it's something that is affordable and will help for years to come. I've had mine for about 3 years now.
Quote from IndyElmerAnother thread on laptops included comments about using a white (dry erase) board for studying. At least a couple people expressed interest in hearing how others use their white board to study, so I'm starting a new thread on the topic.
If you love using a white board to study, tell us your favorite techniques for using the board.
