Default Which Multiple qbank and fa combo should I use

Dear experiences examiners

Recently I read a post in which the individual said they did multiple qbanks, subject by subject, for example Uworld path then Kaplan path, then usmlerx Path, then usmle consult path. Would you guys recommend this for questions?

Or

Do you think It is better to do 1 week of random subject questions for uworld, then a week of fa, then a week of random uworld questions, then fa. Do this until you finish uworld questions and then switch to a diff qbank, following the same scheme of 1 week read fa and the next week all random questions.

Default forgot to add

Also, for the second option the goal is to do as many random subject questions in 1 week, and finish all of first aid the next week, and continue like this for 2 months, thus completing multiple reads of fa + finishing qbanks

Subject - Questions - Subject - Questions - .... until you finish all subjects.

Then random questions for at least 2 months before the exam.

so far I am doing a week of questions after completing every 2-3 subjects. For example, after anat,phys,biochem, i do kaplan questions for those 3 subjects. After micro and path, i do questions for those two subjects and so forth. My question is that after finishing doing this for all the subjects, you think it would be wise to do subject(in first aid), questions, next subject(in first aid), questions and so forth? Is this what you mean? or at this point, i should do one of the options i presented in the poll?
