The way I learned was by first doing a complete 180 turn when I want to stop. I wouldn't necessarily 'stop on a dime', in fact, it was the exact same as transitioning to skate backwards only doing it really fast and at a sharper angle. Eventually it just felt natural to do that, but stop the turn at 90 degrees.

But yeah be careful...I'm one of those people who hockey stop outdoors and some days it will just send me flying. It all depends whether or not my wheels are in a bad mood =)
