Read the textbook and pay attention during lecture. I found flashcards (Anki) useful. Exams were not very difficult as concepts are straightforward (I scored >95% on both) and there are "extra credit" questions. Workload is light to reasonable (once a week lecture + discussion, textbook readings) and there are opportunities for SONA extra credit (3 points).

Professor Castel is a really nice and interesting lecturer, but besides that his exams are tricky and ridiculously hard. I wish he gave us more time on the exams. Too many detailed questions. Besides knowing the textbook you need to understand the concepts very well from the lecture slides.
