Hi Katy,
I took physiology my first year of college. I loved it. My advice to you is to get a great lab partner who can be very descriptive in a short amount of time. You do not have a lot of time to get down to work but, if you get a good partner you should be able to get a nice description before getting started on your task. 
I'm taking an earth science lab this semester. I'm kind of freaking out because the first day of classes is this Wednesday but I have not heard from the professor at all. I have emailed him. He has not posted his book or anything. To think, I have to survive lab with this guy does not impress me. 
I really hope your professor is in contact with you and you can work together to get through the class. I think you can.
