I haven't done the paper yet but the best advice as you can already guess is ... 

'Read through the paper correctly'

we do something called the 3 readings:

-a quick read to get an overview

-a thorough reading to get details

-annotations while reading to get in background knowledge

And when answering questions always refer to:

#the writer

#Purpose (reasons for particular events)

#Writers techniques (special terms e.g.: similes, alliteration.. 

# Audience (effect on reader)
