Got IB interviews with no previous experience - how do I prepare?

Hi monkeys, I got 3 first-round IB interviews next week and 2 second-round interviews the week after. (Really happy about this bc I have no previous IB internships since I didn't know I wanted to do it until I started my FT role in credit risk at a BB in London. Also I networked my ass off to get the interviews lol - so don't listen to anyone who says networking doesn't help)

How should I prepare for the technicals? I read the BIWS 400 and many of the resources on WSO. I studied finance at a UK semi target, and I don't have a lot of modeling experience so I'm practicing that intensely at the moment.

Any advice welcome❤️
