For fifty years, American Mensa has supported intelligence with its wide array of events and programs. In honor of this milestone, we are taking half off the Mensa Home Test so prospective Mensans can prepare for membership to our organization.
Arlington, TX (Vocus) September 2, 2010
American Mensa is taking 50 percent off the Mensa Home Test in honor of its 50th anniversary. For the entire month of September, prospective members can get half off the print or online version of the test. While it is not a requirement, taking the exam will give individuals an indication of how they will fare on the Mensa Admission Test. The test will be just $9 through Sept. 30, 2010. For more information about the Mensa Home Test, log on to http://www.us.mensa.org/MHT.
Taking the practice exam will help prospective members prepare for American Mensa’s annual event—Mensa Testing Day, Oct. 16, 2010. This year, we are inviting the public to Carpe Mensa, and seize the many opportunities available to members. More than 190 test sessions will be given across the country, and anyone who scores in the top two percent on the admission test will be invited to join the high IQ society.

“For fifty years, American Mensa has supported intelligence with its wide array of events and programs. In honor of this milestone, we are taking half off the Mensa Home Test so prospective Mensans can prepare for membership to our organization,” says Elissa Rudolph, Chair of American Mensa. “Within five decades, American Mensa has been able to bring together thousands of members from all walks of life, and we’ve looking forward to welcoming thousands more into our network to share their ideas, learn from their fellow members, and most importantly, make new friends.”
On Sept. 30, 1960, five members gathered at the Brooklyn home of American Mensa founder Peter Sturgeon for the first meeting of the organization. Fifty years later, that number has grown to more than 57,000, offering a strong network of intelligent individuals that allows members to connect with likeminded people, and share their ideas through American Mensa’s programs.
