It depends on your learning style...I would suggest doing the questions after each chapter as it helps the info to sink in the first time around, then the second read can be quicker. I know for me sometimes I read something and think I understand it, then when I do the questions i get a whole new perspective.

I think you should answer the questions when you finish of study a chapter there are people that study a chapter with only one read they usually spend more time in the details and understanding everthing, so I think that this people can do the questions after the first read, but there is other people (like me xD) that usually need a second read to understand everything and memories the high yields, I spend less time in the first lecture so I need another to understand well the chapter and then when I think I know the chapter I answer the questions.

The idea is that you should answer question when you think you know the chapter and are ready to do it.

thats my method
