Could you pass the U.S. Citizenship test?
I like to click on random things I find on Facebook. Today alone I checked out a girl who quit her job via a series of photos with her holding up a white board with a different message on each photo, a quiz to see which state I should be living in and then I clicked this one on the website of one of our local news stations, KCRA.
I've known a couple of people in my lifetime who have either taken the U.S. Citizenship test or talked about someone they knew taking it. I went through the public school system, so I learned all about this country's history, politics, etc, but I've never given it much though.
It's not the actual test, just a slideshow of sample questions. When I clicked the link, I was sure I'd fail miserably. I've been out of school for a long time and I've got no other pressing reason to remember what president was in office during which war, but I surprised myself and had the answers to most of the questions.
Take a look, give it a whirl. And then let me know how you did.
