I'm new, but yes the plastic bottle is a good idea. I started with a kit that came with 6 brown plastic 16 oz bottles. With a bottling in to glass, one of the plastics ends up as a test bottle to squeeze for pressure.
I've a folder of Bookmarks on 'what to do when you brew' since it seems like there are a lot of variations on the theme out there. But, I must say that this site has been by far the best on answering questions and providing the information that someone needs. I've experienced some of the same panics that others have listed but found reassurance that things are OK (so far!). Thank you.
