When I practice a specific method like Rock Discipline, Speed Kills etc., I try to practice the entire method that day. Well because of school and such I sometimes have limited time so I sometimes have to go through each exercise by playing at a tempo on a metronome and once I play it perfectly once or twice I move it up. Would it be better to practice a few examples of different techniques while playing each one longer(like playing each example ten times in a row perfectly before increasing the tempo)?

You'de better practice what you NEED to practice, practicing material that's easy is a waste of time. As an example, legato exercises can wait as people can generally do them quite fast and need too train their right hand and their hand synchronisation. You're the one one can see if your training is effective anyway, so try to record an exercise and a week later record it again after having practiced it, see if it's cleaner, faster...
