    LEMS
    "Lambert-Eaton syndrome is a disorder in which faulty communication between nerves and muscles leads to muscle weakness.

    Causes, incidence, and risk factors
    Lambert-Eaton syndrome occurs when nerves cells do not release enough of a chemical called acetylcholine. This chemical transmits impulses between nerves and muscles.

    The result is muscle weakness and other symptoms similar to myasthenia gravis. However, unlike myasthenia gravis, as the muscles continue to contract, acetylcholine can build up in large enough amounts for strength to improve slightly. Instead of the muscle getting quickly weaker as it contracts repeatedly, it gets stronger for a short period of time.

    Lambert-Eaton syndrome may occur with cancers such as small-cell lung cancer or autoimmune disorders such as vitiligo, which leads to a loss of skin pigment"

    I called them yesterday. I got a little certificate on the occasion of 5 years of membership. The certificate didn't say 'CM' so I called them.

    I just asked if it was normal for CM members to be addressed as such in correspondence and was told that it was.

    Fortunately for me, I kept the certificates they sent. I faxed them over and my wife got a call today stating that I have been correctly recognized as Jeremy Smith CM.

    Soon time for an 'S' .....

    Well, that's good. I thought I'd have to call RSES and give them a piece of my mind.

    Not too big a piece, mind you.

    hey guys!
    been a little sick!
    We have an RSES midwest conference March 24-25-26 here in kansas City.
    I am going to try for my 4th S !!!!!!!!!!!
    I think I will try either Dynamic compressors , heating or commercial refrigeration? Not sure?
    I am sure though that I will not pass either one of those the first time!!!!!!!!!

    I thought I would do best on the compressor exam but the guys I talked to who took it as a beta in Atlanta said even Wes Taylor could not pass it!!!!!
    Hell he practically wrote it!!!!!!!!!!
    nobody at the beta passed it!
    Do you think they try to make a test nobody can pass?
    I have a very good friend who is the service manager here in KC at Hussman, he is the best refer guy I have ever known! No offense Jeremy!
    He missed the commercial refrigeration by one question...



    Commercial Air Conditioning
    Commercial Refrigeration
    Controls
    Domestic Service
    Dynamic Compression
    Heating
    Heat Pump
    HVACR Electrical


    I would like to take one I would do well on? just not sure???????????

    What the heck???

    It costs $25 to try. NATE is something like 5 times that for an easier test.

    I'll try it, try to force myself to slow down and actually READ the questions and all of the answers and see how I do.

    For whatever reason, I have always been a person that tests well.

    I'll brush up on some formulas before test day and, pass or fail, I can say that I tried...wasn't it Babe Ruth who said you miss 100% of the balls you don't swing at.

    I understood that the first CM test was free.

    Any specialist cost $25.

    I am open to being wrong, though. Having passed a couple, I would be very inclined to believe you, Frank.
