I'd be less curious about your business background that about your math background. Honestly, there's only so much they can teach you about finance and accounting in three days. If you feel intimidated by those topics, it might
be worth the money. If you feel that you'd be fine just taking the regular course, you'll save more than the $700 because there's those weeks of being able to get settled you mentioned.
Personally, I'd only do it if you really have absolutely no clue about finance/accounting and fear that you'll immediately fall behind in your regular classes without some sort of introduction. Before I'd shell out the money I'd go poking around Wikipedia or something; just my style.
