im studying AQA philosophy from home. how do I use the textbook?

the text books are 400 pages each - surely I dont need to memorise it all?

my approach is learn/understand the text with a white background (outlined by green) and revise/memorise the argument by the philosophers in the grey box (outlined by red)?

You memorise enough to write a 5 mark question on everything from the specification on the AQA website. Use the text book to help you learn the spec, ignore the rest.

I am self-teaching Philosophy A-level and I was wondering if anyone has any revision notes (keys points arguments for and against) from their school that I could use please? I am willing to pay if you want money - I just need help!
