Get good with modeling complex excel
Models. Understand the concepts of one time cost and recurring costs. Understand what are some major buckets of one time and recurring cost and their drivers. Understand the concepts of standalone cost. Understand the concept of synergies.

If working on the buy side then think about taking seller cost estimates and think through how you can adjust them higher



Most importantly, network with folks in pre deal and ask your pre deal managers for M&A strategy materials.
