    before preparing report

    Is this sentence right?

    We would ask that you review Mr. X's summary before preparing your report.

    Re: before preparing report

    You'll hear and see "We would ask that ..." but the "would" is redundant unless there is a chance that you won't go on to ask the person to do it.

    "We ask that you review ..."

    Even simpler is "Please review ..."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
