Question Qbank Random Mode

I have started doin uworld and doin it in random timed mode, and i just finished kaplan, i am doing FA along with uworld.
I have 10 weeks to exam and i want to know if doin uworld subject wise is better or random itself?
Coz i know i have not nailed a few concepts and most answers i go wrong are coz i dont remember a few facts!
Is it okay to use uswa 1 and 2 and nbme for practising random mode or should i practise random with whole uw qbank.?

Thank you all in advance...

Its a personal choice really.... Personally i like the timed random mode... But if your doing FA along with uworld i recommend subjectwise ... That will save a lot of time (wont have to flip through the book again and again for questions from different topics )

Most people generalize it and say random and mixed becos exams is random. When u have done all ur concepts well.That sounds great but if fa and unworld are ur study materials then pls do subject wise to get ur concepts down be4 random wise.
