Ways to Practice For the Mensa Examination



J. Randall Waterfield belongs to Mensa, the international society for people with high IQs. The society provides J. Randall “Randy” Waterfield and its other members an opportunity to share ideas and socialize among highly intelligent people. For those seeking to learn whether they qualify for the society, or simply wishing to exercise their mental muscles, Mensa offers several ways to practice the type of material found on its qualifying exam.

The Mensa workout is an online test that anyone can take for free on the Mensa website. It is important to note that it is not an official qualifying exam since official tests are only given in a supervised setting. However, the test does give participants an opportunity to see the type of questions that are on the official exam as well as to get a sense of their own abilities. The practice test consists of 30 multiple choice questions to be completed within half an hour and is graded automatically immediately after completion.

The society has also made available a video game called Mensa Academy that can be played on multiple platforms including Nintendo, Playstation, and Microsoft Windows. Players can receive coaching, practice, and take sample tests in a casual digital setting. The game covers material related to logic, numeracy, language, and other subject areas that are reflected on the official Mensa examination.
