Card expired in February. Filed for citizenship in March. Got an appointment for the biometrics. Am I going to be okay? Anything to considered? More so, can I get a sticker extension on my expired card? And last, when will I have to take the test? Is it difficult?
You should be OK, given that your GC only recently expired and you filed for citizenship within a month after that.

The answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
You should still have a valid passport or state driver's license, as you will need some form of valid government issued ID to attend the biometrics appointment at a USCIS Application Support Center. They will not give sticker extensions on an expired green card. You will have to take the tests of English & Civics at your N-400 interview, typically about 6 months after filing, and you can find the study materials on their website, including practice test questions - See https://my.uscis.gov/prep/test/civics
This is general information only. It is not intended as a substitute for legal advice, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. For legal advice specific to your circumstances, you must consult an attorney in a confidential setting, not in an online forum.
You will eventually be issued an appointment date for the naturalization interview notwithstanding the expiration of your resident card. You can obtain the list of the 100 questions from the USCIS website. However, if you wish to obtain the I – 551 stamp from the local USCIS office you will be asked to file the FORM I – 90.
