As the other attorneys have said, there are many hearings before a trial that are usually just procedural and neither benefit nor hurt you. Just make sure you show up.
However, you may be talking about a "settlement conference." These are common in Superior Court and are designed to hash out a possible plea bargain. If so, it can help you and may be very informative. But most "review hearings" are done after you have been sentenced, so I don't know if you are using the correct term. Good luck!
It'd be good to know more about the case, such as which court you are going to.
However, if you are still waiting for your trial date, then this is likely a hearing where the judge assesses the status of the case and makes sure that the case will be ready on the scheduled trial date.
Many courts do a review hearing after sentencing to see how you have been doing. However, yours is prior to trial. So, I am assuming the judge just wants to check the status of both parties before the trial starts.
This is very common. The lawyers will hash out issues they may have.
