Know the Captain's:
Flows, Briefs, cockpit setup, be knowledgable of your companies FOM and familiarize yourself with the aircraft systems. One of the hardest things I have observed for some is make the transition from the doer to the leader. i.e. let the FO do their job and you do yours run the cockpit.

Sporty's How an Airline Captain Should Look and Act (DVD) - from Sporty's Pilot Shop

https://youtu.be/kQFeZRNNL6U

And on a serious note, NOT to pipe on, but it can’t ALL be read in books......

And as mentioned Like a lot of others, I learned a lot sitting FO during the “dark decade”. Watching/observing the CA’s I liked/dislike. ALWAYS being apprectiative of the CA’s that helped mentor me all along as well as before going to upgrade.

But I learned A LOT MORE after I upgraded.

Bingo.

There is no level D simulation to replace the school of hard knocks. It's live.

Just bought, thanks. For the record I have no shot at upgrade at my current airline for the foreseeable future, but trying not to get complacent in the right seat.

An alternate theory holds that life itself is a giant simulator, with those hard knocks being the abnormals and emergencies given us by the Great Instructor. Some day the motion will be turned off and we will debrief.

And those of us who have lived good simulations will go down to the cafeteria for a mountain dew and reeces peanut butter cup, while those who have not will be jammed in a small unairconditioned briefing room with 70 unwashed angry male virgins.

It's a rough simulated life.
