Go to class, take notes from his slides (he doesn't post his slides...usually), study for the exam using the study guides he provides, and you're good! I learned a lot from him. Class can get a little boring since he repeats concepts a lot but the concepts are interesting, he is very passionate about them (especially nuclear weapons), and it just means less stuff to study later. You need to go to class unfortunately to get the notes, but you only need to read the readings that you will be quizzed on (he tells you which ones will be on the quiz). Overall, he was a very friendly, relatable, and intelligent professor and I would take him again. Be aware that the final is like 50% of your grade though so don't fail that.
This class is super straightforward and Professor Berenji is great! Lectures are engaging and he makes the concepts and theories very simple to understand. Readings are also not difficult to understand and connect perfectly with lecture. Class is structured like the rest of his courses- 4 simple reading quizzes, midterm, and final. Definitely learned a lot and would recommend this class
