    Could you pass the test?

    Happy Pre 4th of July FK'ers. I just know you non US Citizens want to take a knock at it too

    How many natural born citizens can really pass the US Citizenship Test?

    I got 70%, but I swear I did know the answers, just not right then! I mean if I studied and stuff...


    Sorry Mom.

    I took it this morning. Missed some of the amendment stuff and dates. They've never been my strong point.

    You answered 45% of questions correctly.
    There you have it, if you're an US citizen and you scored less, you should be ashamed.

    95%, that's the only one I got wrong. Don't know how I got the naturalization form number correct.

    I took it this morning and got 80%. In high school one of my history teacher's made us take the real test at the beginning of the year and again at the end of the year to see if we actually learned anything. I think I got a 98% on it the second time.

    Was it 95%? I just know I got one wrong... didn't pay attention to the final percentage.

    90%. Didn't know the INS form, and missed which amendment didn't address voting rights. Guess I'd make it if need be.

    Wait a second...all of you got the INS form question right? Sounds a little fishy to me. It's one thing to get a lucky guess...but ALL of you (save three - gg, clicky and myself) got that one right? Puh-leeeeze. If you are a US citizen, why on earth would you know the answer to that? It's like asking a non-diabetic how much insulin they need to take. Useless question.

    19. What INS form is used to apply to become a naturalized citizen?

    Form N-200 "Petition for Naturalization" is not correct.
    N-400 "Application for Naturalization"

    How is anyone supposed to know that?

    Enough of my family started in the Caribbean. As well as past engineers being from overseas... so yeah.

    I knew that one.
