Of course, practice makes a man perfect. The more the practical exercises the better the result is. Theory is Ok just for a concept but hands on practical exercises are much effective.

Mr. Luca, interesting points. I would start by saying that reducing project time needs to be done after a detailed risk assessment has being conducted included a process flow analysis to understand how reduced time and thus resource allocation impacts the process flows, both critical path flows and non critical path. Estimating time on a project is difficult, many are happy with PERT as a means of calculation but its vaguely accurate at best. I think the impact assessment of the project manager is critical here (ie. We have overestimated time needed and can shed some whilst not altering the project plan). However, if the initial impact assessment outlines a different picture that envisions changes to be made, a detailed risk assessment is needed to map the impact of every change made and its impact on the project and its outcomes (project risk/business risk/financial risk). Risk management tools like process flow analysis are useful here, but the kernal point is to put the brakes on any material change until it is fully understood impact wise.
