I have taken the course and also hold the GASF cert that goes along with it.
Best thing to do in order to prepare is make sure you have a Windows laptop with you. While they'll supply a VM with all the tools in it: if something isn't working you'll have your own OS that you can play with.
You'll use all the tools: Cellebrite, Oxygen, XRY, IEF, etc. Unless they moved stuff around in the class now: the first day is hunting for malware on an Android OS. They'll go over basics like finding out if a phone was rooted/jailbroken and how to determine that.
I'll be interested to see what they did as well with the iOS since 10.3 just released with the new file system for the devices. Not sure how much it changed since I haven't seen it in the wild yet.
Keep your eyes and ears open during the entire thing if you plan on taking the cert. I found this course meshed VERY well with the SEC575: Mobile Device Security and Ethical Hacking course that SANS has as well.
