New Citizenship Test

From the NY Times:
Less to Memorize, More to Learn; U.S. Is Rewriting Citizenship Test

"Like the current exam, the replacement will test applicants in two areas: proficiency in English and knowledge of United States history and government. A major intent is to make sure the exams are administered uniformly. The new test will also try to ensure that prospective citizens understand basic concepts of American democracy and are not merely reciting facts by rote."

Looks like Craig's got his work cut out for him when he finally gets around to taking this puppy. No more memorizing, you say? Well, that's not very American!
