I thought some might be interested in the types of questions asked on the naturalization test. These are from the government site. I find some pretty difficult, but I think most would be fine if they studied and ELP book before the test.

Typical Questions
1. What are the colors of our flag?
2. What do the stars on the flag mean?
3. How many stars are there on our flag?
4. What color are the stars on our flag?
5. How many stripes are there on our flag?
6. What do the stripes on the flag represent?
7. What colors are the stripes on the flag?
8. How many states are there in the Union (the United States)?
9. What do we celebrate on the 4th of July?
10. Independence Day celebrates independence from whom?
11. What country did we fight during the Revolutionary War?
12. Who was the first president of the United States?
13. Who is the President of the United States today?
14. Who is the Vice President of the United States today?
15. Who elects the President of the United States?
16. Who becomes President if the President dies?
17. What is the Constitution?
18. What do we call changes to the Constitution?
19. How many changes, or amendments, are there to the Constitution?
20. What are the three branches of our government?
21. What is the legislative branch of our Government?
22. What makes up Congress?
23. Who makes the Federal laws in the United States?
24. Who elects Congress?
25. How many Senators are there in Congress?
26. For how long do we elect each Senator?
27. Name two Senators from your state.

I think its sad that we as Americans require immigrants to know all of these things when many Americans do not know everything in these questions.

What I realized is the language barrier problem that immigrants will have with the test. To benefit from studying they would need to be a master of the English language. I couldn't find if the test is given in any other languages, but I guess that it is not. I did find that there are many other regulations and restrictions that go along with the test.
