For Canadians, it is a prep course, not a "review course", since very few CDNS have had any exposure to U.S. tax, U.S. law, and U.S. fund accounting. We therefore assume no knowledge whatsoever in these areas, and start from scratch.
For other areas we provide review materials and encourage you to use knowledge gained in your degree program.
