    Immigration Test

    In light of the immigration thread I thought am curious to she if everyone could pass an online test with a few sample questions.

    http://encarta.msn.com/quiz_14/U_S_C..._You_Pass.html

    My apology if this was already a thread.

    How did you do?

    10 out of 11 (being Canadian I think that's alright!)... missed the number of amendments.

    9 out of 11 - I think that still qualifies me as a citizen.

    About 10 years ago I was dating a guy. He and his family were legal aliens seeking citizenship. They'd all been in the U.S. for 15 years, but his parents could hardly speak english. His mom answered every question with "George Washington", but the immigration official said "no, say ___. The answer is ___." and then he'd mark that she got enough right.

    10 out of 11. I got the WWII allies question wrong. That one was kinda tricky though.

    I thought that there would have been a lot harder questions. Something like “What department of the government investigates counterfeit charges.” Or “What amendment was appealed by another amendment and when?"

    9/11 - stupid second guessing myself about the number of Supreme Court Justices....stupid, stupid, stupid.....
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    I saw one years ago that asked what INS form was required to be filed when entering the country. I think these questions are from the study guide.

    11 of 11.

    All questions my wife could have easily answered with the same score.

    Almost missed WWII allies question, but caught it while double checking. Remember you little leaguers out there, always check your answers before turning in your test

    No one else in my house has been able to score above a 6

    11/11, but the WWII allies question left a little to be desired. Didn't Italy switch sides after the allied invasion and overthrow of Mussolini?

    Exactly. They need to specify when during the war, since countries changed sides so much during that time, or immediately after.

    Either that, or pick a more clear-cut World War II question.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    7/11... so am I in the American Clube now?

    Also.. the WWII question wasn't that tricky... you only had to remember that Italy was part of the Axis... and there was only one option without Italy.

    9/11

    I missed the number of amendments and date of the constitution.

    I remembered Italy being axis too and used that to eliminate the other answers.

    The best part about visiting Florida is that it is so close to the US.

    True. I did not find that question to be difficult. I got 10/11 correct. I missed the number of amendments question. Selected 23 instead of 27. I was worried that I got the 49th state question wrong too (between Alaska and Hawaii).
