If you've ever wondered if you could pass the test without prepping for it:

Got 'em all with ease except I didn't have the ammendment numbers for the various franchise extensions. And I didn't know what the Migra form number was.

Right, same as youse guys. They seemed pretty easy, but I'm interested in history and have lived here most of my life.

I only got 2 outta four amendments on voting rights.. Other than that...
Oh, form 400... I had no idea but I would think that would have been one all seeking citizenship would have gotten...

How badly do you have to flunk before they throw you out?

I missed three. Amendment numbers dealing with voting rights, total number of amendments, and the year The Constitution was written. Wasn't it finally ratified in 1789? Sort of a trick question. Oh, four, the number on the form.

Well I(sh.. yes and no.. Adopted 1787.. ratified by NH in 1788 and implimented in '89.
I figured since it was a gov. question, there was a trick to it.. Originally thought '89.. but changed my mind to '87..

Got them all. I doubt that is the real test. The green card test was easier but much longer. I was the first person in the Maine office to get 100%.

In case you ask; No thanks, I'm happy remaining a Brit despite the injustices of the Jones act.
