Some tips: Don’t write in full sentences. (I like to use little dashes and arrows to mark and connect my points.) It doesn’t have to be neat, but you should be able to read it, because you are using this information for your presentation!
Change words that you wouldn’t use to YOUR OWN WORDS. Make sure you understand the text by stopping to look up words that you don’t know and/or reading over sentences out loud if it helps with comprehension.
