Question

drywall - cemenboard transition for wall


if the tiles are going up to 48", should i set the cementboard to about 46" height so that the end of tiles up top actually laps the drywall by a couple of inches? because it is hard to guess where exactly the line will be and cementboard should not be sticking out.

thanks
