There are three parts to the test.

1. Oral - you need to answer 6 out of 10 question correctly. There is a list of 100 questions that you shouldv'e received a copy when you did your biometrics - or you can obtain a copy in PDF from USCIS website.

2. Reading: They ask you to read a simple sentence

3. Writing: they ask you to write a simple sentence, usually the answer to the reading part.

Example:

The IO will ask you to read: Who lives in the White House?

The IO will ask you to write: "The President lives in the White House.

You need to prepare for the 100 questions or else you will not pass the civics exam.

Hello,

In answer to your question about when the interview will be, it depends on your local office.

But to give you an idea, my husband had his biometrics in late May, then on 6/1 USCIS sent him

his interview letter. The interview is scheduled for 7/12/10 in Minneapolis.

Best of luck to you on the rest of your journey!

ditto,

It's mostly oral. the officer reviews the N400 and the officer will ask you 6 questions of the 100. if you pass them all, you passed the test.

then you'll have to read a sentence and write the answer.

I read: How many Senators do we have?

she gave me the answer to write: We nave 100 Senators.

don't worry, very easy if you have studied the questions.

There is no time frame when you will be schedualed. It all depends on your individual application, your service center, the amount of backlog where you live and so on. Some have it in a short time while others wait a long time. Unfortunatly there's no generic answer, you will get your interview when they send you a notification.

Now a lot of people say you should contact INS with an info pass if you haven't heard anything after 4 months or so, sometimes this speeds things up and other times it won't. But you can use that as a base to make an appointment at least...
