Since USMLE World is going to be your first online Qbank then you need at least two months of subscriptions.
Anyway, even after the end of the two months you did not finish you can then extend your subscription.

The difference between various USMLE World subscriptions is the duration only. It's the same qbank with the same number of questions for all durations of subscriptions.
You can use it you and your room mate but then you will be messing up with the analysis and the right and wrong questions. For example, if you friend did a block then you come after him and do "unused" questions then you won't have the chance to see the questions that he has done. Also the analysis will be messed up, like you won't know what is your percentage and what is his percentage.
I strongly recommend that you get a separate subscriptions.
As for how frequent they update their questions, then I think it's pretty frequently, like every couple of months they update, remove, and add questions.

If you plan on doing 2 months worth of questions, then pick the 3 month subscription. Reason is because everyone falls behind or you just need more time then you set out.

So, are you saying that 2 people can be logged in from 2 separate computers AT SAME TIME to use the USMLE world? Have you tried this or know someone who has? Does this really work?

No, I did not mean that

I apologize if I was not clear on this.
No, two persons cannot log in to the same account at the same time. In fact, even if they log in at different times but from two different places that are significantly apart (e.g India and USA) then this will trigger suspicion in the staff of UW and they may ban both of you.

What I meant is that they both use the same account but at different times.
