You should start it asap, and do it throughout. Take good notes from UW questions and then study them while you are doing UW. And I would not recommend having a month gap between UW and exam. If you are done with UW with one month left for the exam, try to go through all the questions again. It will really help you on the exam. But having a gap is not a good idea, at least I don't think it is.

I would recommend that you buy the subscription. I felt that I was able to connect things better while doing "random, unused, timed" blocks. This way you get the real feel of the exam, because as we all know, the exam is completely random, so doing random uworld blocks helps you better prepare. This is just my opinion. And after doing this online, you can switch over to offline, if you don't want to buy another subscription. And I am still waiting for my score, once I get it, I will be able to share my experience with some real numbers, so that you can take my experience accordingly.

Start with UW right after KLN, and as you are doing UW blocks, add those notes into FA. This way you will not only be doing UW, you will also be revisiting FA over and over again. This will really help you out later when you do the final review!

Question concerning Uworld Qbanks:
-These Qbanks are updated one time each year? so each year has its own Qbank.
-Is it possibile to do Qbanks of precedent years ?

Yes, you can do Qbanks from precedent years. There is not much difference, they keep adding few questions that doesn't make much difference. But it is recommended to solve online Qbank at end of your prep.
