    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know the best software/book to learn financial modelling for M&A? E.g. to learn DCF, multiples, accretion/dilution models etc.
    (To the level that would be expected/needed for BB summer internship/full time)?

    Thanks

    Breaking into Wall Street is a greta place to start IMO. I also just bought a book from the Wiley Finance Series called Equity Valuation, which includes quite a few of the different valuation models actually used by the BB Banks. Check it out on amazon, great book!

    The trick is to understand the whys. A calculator doesn't teach you arithmetic, does it? Likewise, these books and courses have less value than understanding sector/industry/company drivers. Once you get your head around that, modelling will be easy (by its very definition it's just putting numbers into excel). Modelling is an art, not a science.

    But to answer your question try http://pages.stern.nyu.edu/~adamodar/ A lot of freebies there.
