In addition to the USCIS study materials, there are many community organizations and social service providers that offer assistance to learn about and prepare for the U.S. citizenship tests. The USCIS funds programs such as the International Rescue Committee that offer classes held in churches, public libraries or various organizations. Many of these services are free, although some online practice tests and programs can be purchased online.

During a naturalization interview, applicants for U.S. citizenship are required to take English and civics tests, explains the USCIS. The English test evaluates an applicant's ability to speak, read and write in English. The civics test is comprised of 100 questions, of which an applicant is asked 10. The applicant must answer at least six of the 10 questions correctly to pass the test. If an applicant fails any portion of the test, he is allowed to retake that portion of the test within 60 to 90 days. An applicant must pass during his second test in order to gain U.S. citizenship.
