The average reader score on this exam was 83%, though I don't know what it was for actual test-takers. 92% of applicants achieve the 60% minimum score needed to pass it.

I got 98% of the questions right. I missed on on the number of amendments and one on the year the Constitution was created (though I was close on both). How will you do?

I'll take it. I expect to fail. I think the test is a stupid requirement to citizenship though. Just make aure the people coning in are coming in slow enough to become American instead of having enclaves that breed divisiveness, and make sure their very presence improves the country in some way.

Okay that was a lot easier than I thought. Stopped halfway through from sheer boredom and was on pace to get about 90%

I hate the won that asks what type of economy America has, and apparently they count capitalism as the correct answer.

Lol, for a second I though that 'Have you tried unfiltered raw honey?' was on the citizenship test.

That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "

I think it's a poor question - I agree. We don't have a pure free market, but I knew capitalism was going to be the correct answer.
Why?

American culture is generally fairly boring, but still managed to pass with 63%

You know I just took this today; I don't know if it's coincidence or not that it showed up on the forums here.
