Default Timed Tutor mode vs. Timed - help please

Hello all
I'm not sure if this is something that's been asked before but I just wanted to know which is better and what the difference is, or what is recommended - timed tutor or just timed mode, in UW. I've always just done tests in timed mode. And I end up reading the explanations once the test has been submitted.
So - what's the timed tutor and when is it recommended?
Thank you in advance.

timed tutor is when the explanation is seen after each question and the clock is running (limited time), and even i don't know why someone would use something like that and it's definitely not recommended as the gold standard is random timed blocks.
