The old test was pretty straight forward. The new one has a little depth to it. Just study the information well, and you will do fine. The test itself is very easy. They you are asked to write a sentence, just as you see it on the paper, and then read a sentence out loud. Best of luck for your interview

Believe if you applied after Oct. 2008, you have to take the new test, before then, you can chose, can download all the questions and answers at the learning section of the USCIS site. A study guide was available when you had your fingerprints taken, but you had to know to ask for it, USCIS doesn't tell you anything.

Wife never had to read anything, but this was after about 25 minutes of reading and explaining our evidence, wife spoke English far superior to her IO, but only had to write, I am a very good cook. She said regarding civics and English, that took less than two minutes of her interview. She fired her answers back fast as quick as her IO could barely read them, so was only asked six and told she knows her civics very well.

At the end, she was asked to read the oath at the bottom of the form out loud, believe that is also an English test, then sign it, but that didn't count, still had to make another trip for the oath ceremony. There is simply had to move her lips if she wanted as the entire room was reciting the oath only repeating a few words at a time, and didn't have to sign stating she recited the oath, but that one counted.

We reviewed both the old and the new test, new test kicked out some civic questions and added some geographic questions, like what is the longest river in the USA. But only asking six out of a hundred questions, kind of means you should know all the answers, but still can miss four out of ten and still pass. She did ace her DMV test, but only have to get 70%, doesn't make any difference if you get a 70 or a 100, no gold star for a hundred.
