U.S. Naturalization Test

Us eagle
Anyone applying for U.S. citizenship, the applicant must pass the naturalization test. How would you do? The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services provides a naturalization self test study tool to test knowledge of U.S. history and government in preparation of the test. The actual civics test is NOT a multiple choice test. The civics test is an oral test. During a naturalization interview, up to 10 questions are asked from the list of 100 questions.  6 out of 10 questions must be answered correctly to pass the civics portion of the naturalization test.
