Two-hour modeling test coming up - looking for help

Hi everyone,

I have an upcoming two hour modeling/writing test for an ER associate role at bank.
I have been mostly preparing for it using the guides available online (BIWS and the youtube videos on financial modeling), but was wondering if anyone could offer some help with the resources.

I did some quick search but it seems like a lot of the links posted are expired. I would appreciate any help with regards to modeling resources. (bank ER models, write-ups, etc....)

Thanks and have a great day!

Sorry this is a bit late, but I'll post this here anyway. There's a model here on my site for Tesla that's made in a similar fashion to how the street models the company (with one exception, noted in the model). Good to play around with this to get familiar with modeling and try to recreate.

Did they give you any guidance re: the type of model? I'm assuming an operating model with DCF and case selection options?

Udemy has a pretty detailed Tesla DCF course I took and learned a lot from (out of date by a few years, but fun to update with the latest data and play around with), and the Macabacus operating model is thorough as well, and I've read comments on WSO lately saying their stuff sometimes goes beyond what is typically expected or templated, depending on the shop. Could be useful! Hopefully this isn't ultra late.
