US Citizenship: Audio CD

I lost access to the audio CD I was given at the fingerprinting and ID stage of my US naturalization. At this appointment, upon leaving, I was given a Booklet and Audio CD (Both titled: “Learn About the United States: Quick Civics Lessons”). Strangely enough, I could not find the Audio CD anywhere online (except one Russian site ILLEGALLY selling the MP3s). On closer examination of the CD, when I finally got it back, I realized that the CD was not, in fact, copyrighted (this should have been obvious, I know, as it was a government publication), so I am enclosing a link to the torrent (2 mp3 files):

  • Quick Civics Lessons: Audio CD torrent (removed December 12, 2008…. Hope everyone got it)

A Cautionary Note:

Anyone applying (submitting form N-400) for US Citizenship on or after October 1, 2008 will have to take a DIFFERENT test (i.e., this audio CD does not cover enough). The new test, based on a quick perusal of the questions, is significantly tougher. After Oct 1, 2008, anyone TAKING the test can opt for either test.

Did they really catch you sharing?

Apparently, the DMCA takedowns and RIAA complaints may not be justified. They may not even know if you are, in fact, file-sharing. Check out this scholarly article showing (bookmark it!) they may not have a leg to stand on.
