Help me hit the ground running!

Several months ago I snagged an internship at a small family office pe shop. That internship facilitated a jump into a larger, more sophisticated pe firm. My question to you all is, what resources can you recommend to help me get up to speed on PE deal-making structures (e.g. downside protection, participation preferred, full ratchet, etc..)? I understand this stuff conceptually, but I'd love to get a deeper understanding of it by seeing it in use. I know I will see a lot more of it in the office, but I want to hit the ground running...

Any advice/recommendations?

Thanks all!

I'm assuming that you are fresh out of UG? If so, I'm going through something similar.

I've struggled and have relied on seeing things first hand to really understand them. Researching the theoretical underpinnings is one thing, but for me there is no substitute for having a practical context.

If I were you, I would try and get hold of some case studies.
