technique that worked best for me.
It's easy to work with. I scored it with a razor knife and it breaks cleanly along the score. I've heard that vinyl siding shears work well too, but I did it all with the score and break method.
This flooring is not picky about what you lay it over, it's very forgiving. I put it directly over an old vinyl floor, and it turned out great. The other advantage to this product is that it's relatively thin. I didn't want to raise the height of my floor much, and this product is only about an eighth of an inch in thickness, but very strong.
TrafficMaster makes a similar product that snaps together, which I have used in the past. This stick together product is far easier, in my opinion, to install.
The picture makes the flooring look dark brown, but it is actually almost black.
