I bought it because of DVD. I was hopping to get interactive studding. But DVD contain only 3 video interviews with USCIS officer, 5 quizzes (10 question each - some of them repeat each other from quiz to quiz) and some interactive menu links which open one of dialogs from one of three interviews. That's it. No 100 civic questions from history, no help with forms, no English tests or anything like it. DVD is useless unless you want to watch over and over interview where interviewed endlessly ask officer to repeat the questions.
As for book, it's a waste of money. The book suppose to help you study history, help to fill up N400 (they could simply fill up it with fake info for sample sake) but it doesn't explain what needs to fill up in paragraph. let say Part4 paragraph B: "Care of______" care of WHAT?! The book does not give an explanation. There are more questions asking you in this book than answers explaining them like: "Why is voting both right and responsibility?" or: "What does the Statue of Liberty means to you? What do you think of when you see it?". The book does not have answers. And those only samples of questions.
Another aspect of the book is it ask you "Find someone who has become a US citizen" to interview him. What is that?! Joke? The book suppose to give right and direct answers not to send you away for someone help who may be even does not have a correct answer.
Another thing: "If you have trouble to apply for citizenship ... think of ways to find professionals in immigration and naturalization in your community ". The book send you away again! If I'd find professional why would I need this book?
And last one, whoever did this DVD could use at least one actor with clear English and refer that interview in the book.

I am using this book to assist a Hispanic immigrant to gain citizenship via the existing law. My student is working very hard on English and the book content to prepare for her verbal 100 questions. In that sense, the book is effective, but here's the deal: 1) some of the history is revisionist. For example, Roosevelt is credited for the economic recovery of the U.S. after the Great Depression, when historically it was WWII that brought us out. 2) In the section on the Legislative branch of the federal government, there was a picture of Nancy Pelosi as the first female Speaker of the House. Fair enough--that is historically correct. But then when it goes into how to make a bill a law, right below it, it introduces the topic of immigration law, cites amnesty used in the 1980s and then references Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act which "hasn't been passed YET". Any reference to immigration law bills and amnesty laws actually works against the immigrant seeking naturalization. If a naturalization candidate is regarded as punting in hopes of amnesty occurring, their chances with interviewer could be hurt. This book essentially "teaches the test" for citizenship--although it really helps students cut to the chase in terms of preparing for citizenship, it cannot substitute for real involvement with new immigrants over the long term. Immigration legislation is not part of the 100 questions. There are other subtle issues like this in the book that I won't go through here, but I can tell you I am inclined to author my own materials as I get through this process to insure that other immigrants I help get connected to the rest of the story and are helped in becoming self-sustaining citizens.

I am using this with a Korean student to help her prepare for the Citizenship Interview/Test. She likes the book and the DVD which has eased her anxiety quite a bit. Watching the DVD repeatedly and discussing the process has been a great experience for her. The text is complete without being too overwhelming. Well worth owning.

As an educator this book is perfect for my students. It is hard to find books that have current information, and correct, and this book does. The CD is an added bonus to reinforce the material in the book. I would recommend this book both for those people looking for tips on passing the citizenship exam and teachers teaching the how tos" of passing the interview.
