Free ways to study for both the English and civic parts of the American citizenship test are available on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website, USCIS notes. The materials include flashcards, sample questions, exercises and study booklets.
The civics portion of the test consists of 10 questions drawn from a pool of 100 questions; these questions and their answers, along with many other learning materials, are available for free, notes USCIS. In addition to the questions and answers in text format (available in English, Spanish and Chinese), they are also available in audio format in English and Spanish. The USCIS website also offers flash cards in both English and Spanish, interactive practice exercises, a video of the process, and a downloadable study booklet for the civics test.
The English portion of the test consists of three parts — reading, writing and speaking — and materials to study for all three parts are available for free, says USCIS. An official list of the vocabulary used in the reading portion is available, as are vocabulary flash cards for both reading and writing parts. Interactive practice tests for testing vocabulary and for better understanding the commands a test taker may hear during the naturalization interview are also available.
