If you need to take this class, taking it with Hayes is a great choice. He is an expert in his area. Just google him and you'll find him excellent. If you take it as an easy GE, this may not be a good choice. If you take it due to major requisite, the workload is not that heavy. This course is much more organized and detailed than LING 1, so it is indeed a good intro to linguistics.
The textbook is free and written by Professor Hayes. It's useful to review class materials. Midterm and final is not easy, but they are both open book and the professor gave us about two days to do it. Hayes explained things clearly and gently. He encouraged us to communicate with him in OH.
My TA Matthew is GOAT. He knows Mandarin very well and makes the discussion engaging. I don't know other TAs and professors of this class, but take it with Hayes and Matthew is definitely great.

I love his style of teaching lectures because he is coherent and he shows the step-by-step process of his phonological analyses. He is also a very understanding professor and kind in general and I appreciate that.
The workload was a lot (especially during finals week because we had a final exam and term paper due in the same week on top of our other courses) and the homeworks were difficult/complex (we were on our own to figure out the homeworks because hints given during OH were very broad) but overall I really enjoyed the class and learning a lot about phonology. I found the computer program Pheatures to be very fun. The textbook (I believe it is written by him) is very fascinating and I continue to read it even after finishing the class. I thought the final would be very difficult judging by the homeworks, but it turned out not to be so. I feel that the complex homeworks prepare you for the final so you will do better than you think on it. The final tests your knowledge and skills but the homework is more complex.
