Mensagem:  Right.  "Cram course" is less formal, more of a slang term.  "To cram" means to put a lot of something into a small space.  (Such as a lot of information into someone's head!)

Can I cram in there? = Will I fit?  Is there room enough for me?

There is no room in my suitcase.  Can you cram these two shirts into your bag?  = Is there room in your bag for these two shirts?

The six of us crammed into the car. = The six of us were in a car that was too small to comfortably seat us.

We crammed our faces. = We ate a lot of food.
