There are students and situations where cram courses are helpful. Week long
total immersion courses are common in industrial education. You hire an expert
for a week and he focuses on the important issues without the interesting side
avenues. Professionals learn to take good advantage of such courses. Not
recommended for secondary students.

If you think about it, homework is an attempt to spread the learning out over
time beyond the formal instruction. My experience is that students who don't do
the homework have the idea that cram courses are good enough. The night before
the exam, don't sleep, just pray!
