CM/M Courses

Does anyone who has taken these courses recommend any of them even though they are no longer necessary?

If so, which courses and why? (Helped with test prep, contained good or useful information, or some other reason.)

I took the Advanced Stability course at MITAGS, and I can honestly say that it was very helpful in preparing me for the Chief Mate Exam. The only other class that I would recommend is the Cargo Handling course. I had quite a few cargo related questions on the deck safety portion of the exam.
