If you would happen to know off hand which chapters in the LRQT book or the workbook would help me drill these questions?

Also in your opinion if I have flashcards of all the indicators (like IF indicates sufficient and UNLESS indicates to negate the sufficient) as well as Premise and conclusion flashcards....and do these every day at night or on the train to work, will that help get my diagnosis to be fluid eventually?

Sure, here you go:

LRQTT, Volume 1 & 2:

Chapter Six: Justify the conclusion Questions
Chapter Seven: Assumption Questions
Chapter Sixteen: Conditional Reasoning Questions

LR Bible Workbook, review these practice drills:

Premise and Conclusion Analysis Drill
Conditional Reasoning Diagramming Drill
Either/Or, Multiple Condition, and Double Arrow Diagramming Drill
Justify Formula Drill

There are then various conditional problems with explanations in the 5 full LR sections in that book.

They will definitely help so keep that up, but also keep in mind that at a certain point, your memorization of these items is assumed to be solid, and it becomes critical to apply that knowledge to actual questions, or, in other words, in a real time situation.

Using those flash cards is like studying a driver's manual: it helps you to learn the rules. but you also need to go out and drive the car, which is where doing problems and seeing how the indicators work (and when they are key or not) becomes very important.
