p /> Maria Sanchez, a Hispanic immigrant and local resident preparing to take the test, said she wants to become a citizen to improve educational opportunities for her children.

“I need a better life for my three kids,” Sanchez said, “My daughter is graduating (high school) soon and cannot apply for international scholarships. This exam is her future. We are doing everything in our power (to pass the test). Studying, hiring tutors, whatever we can afford basically.”

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services encourages applicants to study the full list of questions to prepare for the civics test and provides variety of study materials on its Web site. The citizenship exam can be taken in English, Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog and Vietnamese.
