I would not recommend taking this class unless you are absolutely required to. It is very demanding in terms of content and workload, especially for a lower division class. Homework can be difficult at times and requires much time/effort to understand and complete. I suggest going to office hours every week or joining a weekly study group to get through it. The midterm and final were very long and students should have been given more time to take the exams considering the type of questions he was asking. There were several questions on the midterm and final that covered things we had not learned in class. 9% of the class grade comes from daily quizzes given at the beginning of class, if you take it you get credit regardless of your answer. If you miss class you can make up the quiz in office hours. There is also a term paper worth 5% of the grade in which you must interview someone who speaks another language and analyze that language for a certain grammar phenomenon. Hint: avoid Mandarin and Japanese for this assignment. He offers 1% extra credit for participating in an experiment through the psych department. The end of the quarter felt very rushed, which was unfortunate because a good portion of the final had to do with the content that he taught at the end. Hayes wrote the textbook himself and provide a PDF to the class free of charge. One frustrating thing about this class is that the examples he used in class were almost always the same ones from the assigned reading, but he usually is more thorough in class so it is still worth attending. Overall if you go to class, take very, very detailed notes, and study for the midterm and final you should be able to pass comfortably. This is coming from someone who had no prior linguistics exposure.

I took introductory phonology with Professor Hayes and found his teaching style both innovating and instructional. His demeanor makes him easily approachable and his class interesting. Pr. Hayes has an incredible sense of humor, as there was never a class where I didn't laugh out loud at least once. His class was one of the most enjoyable that I have taken at UCLA in the linguistics dept, but I suppose that depends on your aptitude for phonology. I would defiantly recommend taking a class with Professor Hayes if given the opportunity.
