You can use the lab manual from last term (i.e., Fall 2014), but not from any previous academic year.
To get started you should do Part 1 of Assignment/Lab #0 (preparing the Databank data set) which is in the lab manual.
Then go online (using the assignment/lab link below) to do Part 2 of Assignment/Lab #0 (creating your own personalized birth data set). The remaining assignments are all done online (and will make use of these datasets that you have created).
Times and locations of lectures and labs can be found on the registrar's web site (Select STATS-STATISTICS as the subject, and then press "Find". Then press "Search Results Timetable")
