It's best not to attack other people in your section. You'll all know each other, pretty much for the rest of your professional lives. Don't be tagged, treat each other civilly.
As for outlining your reading, etc, I did that the first few days. You won't be able to keep that up. Just relax. Burnout is a huge issue. You don't need to read the federalist papers (unless assigned). Don't read any lay books about the constitution. Con Law is very dependent on what cases your prof wants to emphasize. Just read the assigned reading, and maybe the chemerinsky hornbook (I didn't like it, but depending on your professor, it may be a big help).
Your professors start you off pretty slow. The pressure won't come until November. If you start going into hibernation mode now, you won't have anything left for exams.
