Another less stressful way to deal with it is to just see how many certs a given school will let you get in how many days.
I did 101,103 and 104 in 4 or 5 days don't remember which.
Even though I could have challenged them I thought it was worth it and actually learned a few things.
Studying up on the paperwork is a good idea before but just negotiating for the fastest cheapest course might be easier in the long run and more fun and probably not cost much more and have a more sure outcome.

If you challenge it is all about you. You blow a jibe and the instructor can fail you, he has no skin in the game and may want to teach you a lesson.
If you take the course even if it is a short cheap version the instructor in on your side and wants you to pass to show he is a good instructor.
