    I used one of those mouse things with the tape in. Much less messy, and you don't have to wait for it to dry.

    can use it in moderation .......but they do say just neatly cross it out and do it again ....

    which would be fine for a little tiny question but if your doing a whole profit and loss accounts and mess up the bottom line.....start again ....dont think so ...

    Think I'm gonna do what somebody suggested yesterday and do it in Pencil then write over it with Pen cause I think even with TippEx a whole P&L scored out would look a mess (cause guaranteed I'll have written the whole thing out and realised there is something missed out):laugh:

    Or missing out a line in a partnership balance sheet - never have I been so thankful for erasable pens :blushing:

    Edit: Come to think of it, that was the FRA skills test not the exam but the principle holds

    OMG - After reading some reccomendations on this forum I just went to WH smiths and bought a "Pilot Erasable rollerball" pen - Its fab - it literally rubs out like a pencil - Go buy one - If you have the time!

    I went to buy one last week but it said on the back of the packet "NOT RECOMMENDED FOR EXAM USE" so I put it back!:001_smile:

    Yep - So it does - Never mind - Perhaps I will only use it for the bits I usually have to rub out!

    How will you know when you are writing something that you may want to erase it at a later point?

    Ha!
