Unless you like the US citizenship test so much, you wan to take it many times (hahaha!) it’s worth it to spend some extra time (and even money) to find the best citizenship test CD that really helps you with your study.

If you do a Google search for a citizenship CD, you will see many websites and advertises offering CDs of all kinds. Some are good, some are very bad and should be avoided. So, how do you know which one to buy from? Which CD is best for you (and your pocket)?

Here are some tips to consider when shopping for a great Citizenship Test CD – one that helps instead of hurts you! They’re simple:

  1. Make sure you listen to audio samples. As far as I know (at the moment of writing this blog post) there are only 3 companies that offer free samples (2 are good, one is very bad and should be avoided.)
  2. Make sure the samples come from different parts of the CD. You want the whole CD is high quality, not just a small portion. Buy the CD that has many samples.
  3. This is the most important tip – Make sure the audio is read by a natural human voice. As mentioned, some people try to make quick moneys by selling CDs that are read by computers. While you’re listening, ask yourself this question: “Does it sound like a real person speaking?” Most CDs that are sold without free samples are read by computers. Stay far, far away. (Some are sold for cheap on eBay.) You’d want to listen to a CD that’s read by a professional voice-over artist, which has clearer voice and correct pronunciation for each and every word.
  4. Read reviews from buyers: The more reviews, the better. Buy the one with the most positive reviews. CDs that have reviews from citizenship teachers or immigration lawyers are best. Know what they like or don’t like about the CD, then make your own decision.
Citizenship CD produced by Citizenship Coach

Citizenship CD produced by Citizenship Coach has study guide included for just $30. If you can afford it, this is a great package.

So again, it’s true that you get what you pay for. Good CDs are sold for about $15-$40. Some bad CDs we see are being sold for $8-$25 (with extra stuff that you may not need.) So, shop around! Have fun studying for your citizenship test, and good luck!

Is this your painful experience?

You do a search for citizenship CDs on Google or Yahoo. You saw ten different CDs that are offer for sale. You buy the cheapest one for under $10 … You said to yourself “Questions are questions, they’re all the same!” Your CD is delivered a week later as promised. You say “A ha! Let’s pop it in and learn right now!” You listen to your new CD. Then with a thunder scream, you say “Oh my goodness, it sounds like a robot! I didn’t know it sounded like this!!! Awww… ”

By now you should know that you’re a victim of some businesses trying to make quick money on poor unsuspected immigrants. Here’s what they do normally: They take the official questions from the USCIS, copy and paste the text into a computer voice software program. That software programs then “spits” out an MP3. They get that MP3 and burn it to a CD, put a label on it, then ship that CD to you! Aha! You now have a CD audio that was read by a computer!

But now you want to return it and get your money back, right? “Sure, we’ll get it back, no problems! Just send it back!” They said! You’re somewhat happier now. It costs you $2 to send it back and 15 minutes waiting at the post office. Then you sit and wait for the refund money. It’s been a month…

By now, you should know that your CD and money are gone.

So, how to avoid such a painful lesson? Beside common sense tricks like “it’s too good to be true…” or “You pay for what you get…” what else can you do to buy the right CD you need?

    Tips to buy great Citizenship Test CD:

  • Make sure they give you samples to listen to. As far as I know (at the moment of writing this blog post) there are only 3 companies that offer free samples, one is Citizenship Coach.
  • Make sure the sample are taken from several parts of the CD. As far as I know, only 1 company that offers this type of samples – Citizenship Coach
  • Make sure the sample is read by a true human voice. As far as I know, only 2 companies have their questions read by real human. One of them is, of course, Citizenship Coach.

Citizenship Coach goes the extra mile to make sure their customers get the best of the best products at a very reasonable price. All the citizenship test audio product they’re selling in CD or downloadable format are read by real native speakers that are natural born American. In fact, they’re real Voice Artists. And in fact, a couple of them are actual Radio Anchors themselves. You can’t get better voice than that from any where.

Please note that some computer voice software programs do provide better voice. However, they don’t sound natural, or ever will be. Learning from these CD create by computers will do more harm than good to you.

It’s also important to note that you SHOULD learn from native speakers. There are CDs that are read by people with foreign accents… very hard to listen to, and will not help you with your study.

Citizenship Coach’s Citizenship Test CD is endorsed by citizenship teachers and loved by many immigrants who have used them. You should use them, too!
