My sister wants to take the exam again, so please give me information on how long it takes to get a second exam date. Please also give me some important reading materials for that exam.

    Answered . She can re-take the exam, provided the examining has not denied the application and is giving her another chance to come back and be re-examined. All of the materials for the naturalization test are available on USCIS website, at www.uscis.gov. Make sure she has an experienced immigration lawyer who could help her be prepared for next time.

    Answered . The more important question is: How long will it take for your sister to do a better job of studying?

    I suggest that she wait at-least 3 months and that she pay for intensive tutoring sessions.
