Citizenship test day

Today I got to take the day off work to go to my US citizenship test.  It was pretty quick and easy (much better than the experience when I first got my green card 12 years ago), and my oath ceremony is next Wednesday November the 9th.

I had to study 100 questions, and you have to get 6 out of 10 correct.
My questions:

What is freedom of religion?

What is the ocean on the East Coast of the United States?

Name one state that borders Canada.

When must all men register for the Selective Service?

When was the Constitution written?

How many US senators are there?

I got all the questions right so I only had the 6 questions.  Also I had to write a sentence in English, my sentence was "We pay taxes."   And I had to read one sentence too.

The whole process takes a few months though, we sent all the paperwork in July I think, then last month I had an appointment for fingerprinting, this month the test, then the oath ceremony.  We have to be there at 7 in the morning so I guess the kids will be coming along too and get to go into school late that day.

If anyone is interested in the Citizenship questions I think they are good for everyone to know.  Kate is in 5th grade and she helped me study.
