Interesting in that there appears (i havent bothered to work it out) that there is not really a major difference between some of the average scores of US citizens and those from outside the US..

I wonder if it would be the same if we took one for Australia or the UK or something.

not really a citizenship test...really, you don`t need to know which states border canada to be a citizen. or which ocean is to the west. honestly i know quite a few people who couldn`t answer that question without the multiple-choice. fun, i suppose, 29/30

Yeah, I feel like it could be made mandatory to pass the citizenship test or something like it in order to graduate from high school.

But if Barack, Pelosi, Reid and Hoyer have their way we won`t be a free market for much longer. So the validity of number 8 is dependent on whether or not Americans start caring about what their legislature and President are actually doing. George may have given us a war but Obama and friends could easily destroy our economic system.

Here is the list of questions (with answers) asked for the new naturalization test. Of these, you are given a 10 question oral exam where you must get at least six right.

For UK citizenship, you should have read "Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship" and know the answers to these questions.

There`s a list of Canadian citizenship test questions of page 42 here.

Lastly, is an Australian practice test.

Should be interesting for those of you who thought the American one is too easy, since you are American.

"That wasn`t hard at all. If that`s even remotely similar to the actual citizenship test... we need to raise our standards."

Well there are a few other parts such as it not being multiple choice, its a english which might not be your native language, you have to have been a resident for a certain amount of time (and we all know how much of a bitch it is to get residency).

"23/30. Does that mean I pass? Where`s my Green Card, dammit?""

Citizenship, not green card.
