Thank you for responding and You’re the bomb!!! I have the 2017 used book, but I have to erase ALOT. Do you think I should buy the most current version? Thrift store really did me in for by showing the picture of the 2021 version of the book for $12 bucks. I guess it’s true that you get what you pay for.
I’m also looking into finding a prep for the LSAT. I do better with a teacher where I can ask questions. Also, is there anywhere I can print just sinking…. I mean sequencing questions? I feel if I can master this than I have a better foundation. Look forward to hearing from you.

I'm finding that Sequencing games come easy to me UNLESS they contain rules that center on conditional sequencing. How can I get specific practice on these questions? How can I approach them without getting overwhelmed with the conditionality?

I remember having a hard time with questions 14-17 in PT 78 June 2016. I had a really hard time with this game because of the conditional rules even though it was a basic linear.
I'd focus on strengthening your understanding of conditional reasoning in general. Conditionals in the games aren't generally any more complex than conditional reasoning in LR. In fact, typically conditionals in the games are likely to be phrased in simpler ways than we see in LR. You should treat a conditional in sequencing games the same way you treat any conditional---remember that if the sufficient isn't met, the necessary isn't required. That's likely the area where you may be struggling. It can feel like the necessary condition is a rule about the game as a whole, when in reality, the necessary condition is only a rule when the sufficient condition is met.
It may help to note specific examples of where you struggle--what conditionals are hard for you? What errors do you tend to make with conditionals in sequencing games?
