Overview


As millions of people know, becoming an American citizen isn’t as easy as just showing up. The process of applying for citizenship is a lengthy one, involving questions of residency, basic proficiency in English, and promising to uphold the provisions of the United States Constitution. And, just like applying for a driver’s license, there is also a test. Applicants must take a two-part naturalization test covering English and civics. How well do you think you would do?
 
Now, with America: The Quiz, you can find out! Inside you will find the 100 test prep questions given to applicants by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Get quizzed on everything from the structure of American government to the basics of American history and civics.
 
Questions include:
 
  • What is an amendment?
  • What is “the rule of law”?
  • What does the president’s cabinet do?
  • Name three of the original 13 states
  • Name one state that borders Canada
  • Why does the flag have 50 stars?
 
Although most readers will assume they could pass this test with flying colors, there are a surprising number of questions that require more advanced knowledge. For example: Describe one of the four Constitutional amendments concerning the right to vote. Or which executive is next in line of succession if the President and Vice President cannot serve?
 
Complete with illustrations and historic photographs, America: The Quiz is the handy little guidebook to the nation that you thought you knew.
