Question for thems who do (or have ever done) research

Okay, just out of curiosity, let's say you find an entire chapter in a book that is exactly the information you've been looking for, for a paper. It's very detailed. Do you take careful notes on the entire chapter?

I mean, I've been doing that but then I think- what am I going to do in my paper, just essentially rephrase this entire chapter in my own words? That seems like B.S. (It's also time consuming)

I -may- find the same info in other sources, but I don't know yet.

ETA- Ha! The problem is I have three divergent thesis statements. God I need supervision. And focus. How I can be a good student and such a mess I'll never know (I typed "such a f-up" but deleted it. Not constructive.)
