DO i NEED TO ATTACH CEMENT BOARD ON THE EDGE OF THE COUNTER TOP BEFORE APPLYING THE TILE?

Answer:

All tile jobs are different and need prep work. Without knowing what your job looks like i will generalize. 1/4 cement board is common for the top but you can use mastic (a premix) for the bull nose or edge pieces. Tape will help hold until dry. Don't use thin set mortar for edge tile. Cement board isn't needed for edge unless you need to make a straighter or taller edge.

not with good adhesive, grout and good grout sealer if you used good 3/4 ACX Plywood I wouldn't worry about it.
