Actual writing surface is 11"x13". Little disappointed in small accessory tray at bottom but can be slipped off. Comes with 2 sheetmetal screws and plastic anchors for wood or drywall mounting but with extra magnets the steel frame at top and bottom on back side allows for sticking to a steel surface. This board is sturdy enough to use on desktop like a pad.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
