The most important are Civics and Government and US History. These categories make up 70% of the whole test.

The remaining 30 % are Geography, World History, and Economics.

Map reading, understanding charts and graphs, and interpreting diagrams and pictures are also very important skills for the Social Studies test.

You’ll also need to understand a few important historical documents; there are questions about the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and landmark Supreme Court cases.

These lessons are NOT difficult.

Now, this may seem like a lot of content but the good news is that this test has open book questions and thinking skills and understanding Social Studies are more important than the details.
