Default When is the time to start q bank?

I have already read physiology & biochem from kaplan with videos for the first time, when do you think I should start q bank? Is it subject based that I can chose? I am planing to have my exam in 9 month.
Thanks

start kaplan qbank from day one.

subject by subject, adding on a new subject as you complete them.

ie. first do physio questions while u read physio, then do physio and biochem as u read biochem, then do physio, biochem and anatomy as you read anatomy, etc etc.

I'm on my first read and I've been doing Kaplan qbook questions after each subject. My plan is to start Kaplan qbank during/after 2nd read along with FA. During/after 3rd read is when I will start UW.

So, I guess it all depends on how many reads you are planning to give. Reason I didn't start qbank right away is because I want to get decent grasp of subject so I can use qbank as both a learning and an assessment tool to see how much I grasp from lecture notes after 2nd reading.
