Do UW first, if you finish everything 1 time, then go back and do wrong questions again. If you do all that and still need more questions, then go do Qbank. If you know UW really well, you probably don't need Qbank. No sense in spreading yourself too thin, do one at a time.

I think it's better random, because there is so much overlap and integration between subjects, the questions usually pertain to more than one subject. I think the way you're doing it is good. I read all the explanations whether I got it wrong or right and added notes to FA. Don't really think it's necessary to have a separate book, plus it's better to have FA be a main source with everything you need to know.
