Prepping for Moelis FT Interview Technicals - Advice?

As the name mentions, I've been prepping for FT interview technicals, which I've heard are quite harder than SA technicals. I have a good pipeline to Moelis, and have reason to believe I will have a fair shot towards an interview.


As such, I've been trying to study my ass off so I can make the shot when I'm called up to take it. My approach has been studying the old section guides from M&I (the ones with 5 key rules, not the new ones with 10+), and obviously studying the 400 Qs as well as ibvine.io for some off guide questions. My goal has been to really understand the concepts so they can be applied towards any questions.


While FT interviews are technical, I hear that EBs, and Moelis specifically, are intense. Is my above approach a good approach to being prepared. What further steps can I take so that I can feel confident technically-wise if I get a super day? Any advice/resources are greatly appreciated!
