One thing i noticed is that; you'll be asked the complete 20 questions regardless of your score. So unlike the 2008 version where the questioning stops when you get the first 6, the questions will continue until all 20 questions have been asked.

 

 It's a waste of time, particularly for the AO and at a time when record cases are backlogged.

How long does asking 20 questions take?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

I think its the same, whereas they stop when you hit 12 correct. 

The wording probably wasn't written correctly.

I thought as well at first, but on further research i verified that the applicant will indeed be asked all 20 questions. We should begin to see this next month, so we can verify for sure

I've read the 2008 civics for fun a while back and now studying the 2020 civics since i applied for my n400 lately ( i don't have the interview scheduled yet ) 
It's honestly not that much harder than the previous material if reading/understanding english is no big deal for you. I can see how it'd be challenging if your english is so-so and you're doing your best to memorize.. 

My approach is to read the whole thing a few times, do some research on events or terms that you don't get, and finally study/memorize/answer 10 questions everyday ( if you have enough time ). I've downloaded the 128 material/questions from the USCIS website and i'm using an awesome iphone app called Citizen Now, i highly recommend it. 

 

Goodluck, Everyone.
