Study for the US Citizenship Test
This study guide will help you prepare for the US citizenship test. The citizenship
test is a one-to-one interview with a US CIS officer. The test has three areas.
The US CIS officer wants to know:
that you understand and can answer these questions about US government,
history and geography.
that you understood and answered the questions on your N-400 form
that you can read, write and speak English.
This study guide will help you prepare for the test. It will teach you how to answer
all the questions. If you are a registered student, you can also use the practice
exercises online at www.uscitizenship.org for review.
Each chapter presents some information about the US government, history or
geography. Use that information to write answers to the questions at the end of
each chapter. Then do the multiple-choice exercises. If you have time you can go
back and practice asking and answering the questions with a partner.
There is also a dictation practice in the last 4 chapters. These are sentences used
by the US CIS to show that you can write in English. Your answers don't have to
be perfect. Have a partner read the questions and answers (from the lists at the end
of this book). Write the answers. Check your answers. You don't have to write
perfectly to pass this test.
Finally, there are questions about the information on your N-400 form. Write
answers to these questions, and then practice answering these questions with a
partner. The officer will ask you about the information on your N-400 form. You
may be asked to explain some of your answers to show that you understand the
question and have answered it correctly.
