After a multi-year process, the USCIS has finally finished a redesign of the citizenship test, or the naturalization test. This test is usually taken by people who apply for the U.S. Citizenship. The redesigned test put more focus on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and the fundamental understandings of American democracy. It encourages citizenship applicants to identify the basic values shared by Americans.
I took a look at those new sample questions of the test. I don’t think there is much change in the questions and the probably won’t make much difference for applicants.
Starting from Oct 1, 2008, the new test will be used. So applicants must get to know whether they are going to take the new or old test.
