mortar is not typically used to set the backer board. just screws or i just use a nail gun... it is about 100 times faster and 1/10th the cost in fasteners. just make sure before you lay it down where to nail into something so your tile will not move at all ! that is crucial ! if the floor moves at all then use the 7/16" backer board or add framing below it. if you are going over concrete just glue it down of course and use something heavy to make sure it is laying down flat on the concrete everywhere such as buckets of water.

the side with the grid goes up so you can see where to nail it. Mark the backerboard where the joists are underneath and follow the lines on the backerboard to keep in line with joists underneath if the backerboard is being layed square with the joists anyway.

Best cement board in the market, I build bbq islands and I’d like to use the 1/4” so the finished island is not that heavy for transportation to customer home. Very sturdy and easy to work with.
