Would you have any specific advice for someone in my position?
Are there any definitive resources I should be aware of? And why those ones?
If you came to Psychology from a similar background, which particular skills and concepts did you find useful or wish you knew before entering an MSc conversion course?
I think this could have a very nice answer from someone who has done a lot of teaching/admin on an conversion course. I don't have this expertise, but the little experience I had with my former departments conversion course was that all the faculty teaching on it were surprised about the variety of deficiencies the students had.
Conversion courses are highly compressed and therefore make assumptions, in my experience often unfounded, about what incoming students know. It would not surprise me if some conversion courses provide an introductory reading list or handbook for incoming students, or at a minimum have explored and dismissed the ideas. This would cover the first two parts of the question in a pretty objective way. There might even be guidelines now from BPS.
The third could have objective evidence from where past students struggled.
