    Permanent residency is required before you can own firearms legally in the US, even though the right to keep and bear arms is actually God-given to all men.

    In a word, it means FREEDOM... It means individual rights to speech, bear arms, religion... and most importantly the right to disagree with each other and with government.
    This test has some of the questions they give you in the real deal, but does not represent the whole process by any means. You take the test in a one-on-one with a BCIS agent, but in addition they generally have a chat with you about where you came from, your reasoning for being here and your dreams for the future. As my immigration was based on marriage, I also had to provide all the documentation that I was married and have been married since first coming here. My wife even sat in for a portion of it.

    In addition, you are provided literature about the United States, what it stands for, how everything works and why the country is the way it is. Upon completing the test and taking the oath (either in the office or at a ceremony) you are provided with a letter from the president, a citizenship guide and your certificate of citizenship (the letter and guide are in my avatar).

    Trust me, the process is very long, very thorough and fairly expensive. As you say, most immigrants know what the American dream is before coming here, because it's everything we can't have in our countries of origin. The test may or may not get at what it means to be American, but the process reinforces it at every stage.

    Congrats! I admire anyone who comes to this country legally and goes through the process to become a citizen. Too many people who are born here just take it for granted and do not realize how lucky they are! I have a sister-in-law who came here from Korea many years ago, learned english, studied, and became a citizen. It was not an easy process.

    have to be honest: I got a 70%. Probably because I learned these things over 30 years ago. Not an excuse though, its motivated me to study some more.

    I DO carry a U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence in my bag. Someone once said that access to info is more important than memorization anyway! (but memorization is very good)

    In the IT world this is referred to as a PEBKAC (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair).

    Are you using no-script or other blocking ad or pop up blocking software that could prevent the results page from coming? Maybe try a different browser (e.g. use IE instead of Firefox)?
