I also recommend the morse code method for reading through papers etc. Mark a point (.) next to lines that make a statement or argument and then a dash (-) next to any further pieces of the text that add evidence. Then go through and write up with the point statement, followed by bullet points of evidence contributing to that point.
Hope you do well and don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to study as long as you get your head down and start!
