It's not too difficult, and about 95% of Americans pass it the first time. She will just have to go through the official handbook - buy from Amazon at a discount, as all questions are taken from it. There is also online practice test available.
I have another question about ILR -
I was granted FLR Spouse Visa starting Aug 2012 under the old rules (app was july 5th), when I apply for ILR in 2 years will it be under the new rules, or will we be treated under the old rules??
We will not let my visa lapse at all or get into any trouble, don't want to piss off UKBA
Hopefully it's the old rules because I don't see us suddenly making that much money in 2 years :/
