Default Planning my schedule, a couple of questions?

Hello! I'm new to this forum and after days of reading previous threads I have a few unanswered questions I'm hoping you can help me with

1. What are your opinions on studying different topics in one day? I was planning to study for e.g. cardio for 5 days, nephro for 5 days etc. but I'm seeing a lot of schedules where different topics are incorporated into the same day.

2. At what point do I start solving from the qbank? I see a lot of people starting right off the bat while others waiting to finish the FA once.

Thank you so much!!

I personally prefer to do topics subject wise, ie. physiology, biochem and so on.

Qbank I also do after each subject or couple of subjects, ie not according to systems.

I personally think that your first read should be subject wise to grasp the connection between different subjects. Later you can go Systems wise and integrate different systems on your second read.
