Citizenship and naturalization: Common exam questions

Taking tests can be nerve-racking. This is particularly true for tests that cover a wide range of topics. It is understandable that those residing in California or elsewhere who are getting ready to take the citizenship and naturalization test may feel a little overwhelmed.

The path to citizenship can be difficult. Having to pass English and civics tests in order to complete the process is one reason many people choose to put off submitting citizenship applications. Thankfully, there is a lot of information readily available that can assist people in preparing for these exams.

When one goes in to take the necessary tests, he or she will be with an examiner who will administer the English test -- if it is required -- and the civics test. Those who have lived in the United States for 20 plus years, or those who are 50 years old or older may not have to take the English literacy portion of the exam. After taking the reading and writing portion, questions about the United States government and history will then be asked. Some common questions include:

  • What colors are on the flag?
  • Why do we celebrate the 4th of July?
  • What is the Constitution?
  • Name the three branches of government
  • Who helped the pilgrims in America?
  • Name two major political parties in the United States

These and the many other questions that are asked on the citizenship and naturalization exam certainly cover a lot of information. It is understandable that numerous individuals may feel it is impossible to learn it all. Thankfully, immigrants residing in California can seek legal assistance is achieving citizenship status. One's legal counsel can not only help with all the necessary paperwork and applications, but can direct one toward available exam preparation resources in the area.
