New Citizenship Test Required Starting 10/01/2009

The USCIS created a new English and Civics test for naturalization applicants in 2008, which applicants have had the option of taking instead of the old one. Beginning 10/01/2009, all applicants must take the new test and will not have an option. See this link for more details about this new requirement and also self-study materials and practice questions:
