Product Description

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

If you're planning to become a British citizen or apply to live permanently in the UK then taking the Life in the UK Test will be one of your first steps. Over 100,000 people take the Life in the UK Test every year. Unfortunately, Home Office statistics show that nearly one in three people will fail. As the test is expensive to sit, and time consuming to study for, it is best that you pass your test first time.

By using this book and studying hard you can approach your test with confidence that you will be one of those who pass the test and go on to make Britain their permanent home.

About this book This study book is designed to test your knowledge of the official study materials before sitting the Life in the UK Test. It will allow you to assess your progress in learning and understanding of the study materials so that you will know when you are ready to take your official test.

The book is packed with hundreds of practice questions for you to test yourself. Each question is drawn from chapters 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the official Home Office materials. The questions are identical in format to the questions you will find in your official test. The questions are broken into 17 tests. Each test contains 24 questions - again, this is identical to the format used in the official test. There are also special test sections for those taking the test in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We have gone to every effort to make each practice test as similar as possible to what you will face in your official test so there will be no surprises. The book also contains advice on how you should go about your study. Read these sections carefully for tips on how you can identify what to learn and how to retain what you have learnt.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather lame 23 Sep 2009
By Paul
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, OK, I've passed my test a couple of weeks ago. I've had two books: this one and the compulsory Second Edition of whatever - you know, the official textbook.
This one... It says in the foreword: do not memorize the questions because they change all the time. Sic! In fact it is a lame excuse along the lines of 'we ain't got no idea what the questions are, but we'd like to cover our backsides'. This is utterly true: not a single question in my test was ANYTHING like the ones in the book. So basically what they've done, they've taken Chapters 2-6, picked the factual info and then asked questions about it. Do you really need somebody else to do it for you?
Second point is, the website is a joke. A rather sad one. The 'extra' test accessible for free on the site is just a dozen of random questions from the book. To get more tests you need to pay - not a fortune, but something comparable to the price of the book itself, and since I am too tight to be rid of my hard earned pennies in such a ridiculously unscrupulous way, I don't know if there are any original questions in the 'extra' tests, or is it all a repetition of the same stuff.
Third, there are factual errors in the book - me and my mrs. have spotted at least two (about licencing for young folk's labor and something about the EU's founding members), which is a bit of a mauvais tone for a test preparation manual.
So the book is pretty useless. On the positive side, it's cheap, but then again, caveat lector: factual errors can trip you up, so take it with a pinch of salt.
Official blue book is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life In the UK Test - Red Squirrel 20 Sep 2007
When I started preparing for the exam I thought the material was just too much to learn. However after going through the practice tests using the Red Squirrel book I discovered that the answers to the questions were readily available in the Journey to Citizenship 2nd Edition Book.

Secondly the online tests provided were very easy to follow using the guidelines provided for, infact they are exactly the same as the ones on the Red Squirel book. The book has been simplified to make everyone pass on their first attempt and I am proud that I am one of those. I am happy to recommed the books to anyone intending to take their examination and assure you that if you do you homework well, you will not go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable help and highly recommended 26 Jan 2008
My son in law used this book before taking the test and passed first time. His biggest problem was understanding the questions. The wording of the questions takes some understanding (even for me and I am English) and seemed designed to confuse or trip you up. After working through this book he was ready for anything. It was invaluable as I am sure had he not used it the questions themselves would have tripped him up as in the actual test they are exactly the same. Unless your english language skills are first class read the book before attempting the test.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book 20 Sep 2007
By Liuz
The questions in the book are very helpful. When I got the wrong answer, it helped me to remember and understand more the official study book, which I studied as well. I appreciate your book and thank you very much.

Yesterday my wife passed her Life In The UK test, and this book proved a great help. Most, but not all of the questions in the test were in this book in one form or another. Alongside the 'purple book' this proved invaluable in revising for the test. We are delighted that we bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disagree with previous review 2 Sep 2007
By Friday
I disagree with the previous review. This book certainly does have answers. If you don't have all 128 pages then perhaps these have been torn out of your copy or misprinted? Contact and I'm sure that they would put it right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful 28 Nov 2008
It is an useful tool in preparing for the test. The average result you score in the individual tests is very likely to be the one you will score in the real test (e.g. I was scoring somewhere between 22 and 24 in the practice tests from this book and in the real test I was in doubt at two of the questions). The questions from the real test are very simillar with the ones from the book. I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% recommended 24 Dec 2008
By Marius
I've spent a lot of time looking for a decent, easy to use book/website to practice for my Life in the UK Test. After trying several websites and books I came across this one. It is strait forward and easy to use practice book. I recommend it 100% especially that it comes with free internet practice as well. The questions from the internet practice tests are very similar to the ones in the actual test.
