drain the caliper furthest from the resevoir first and work back(it says.. tho Noel who is "the real deal" says otherwise and it sounds more logical.. , so that would be rear o/s wheel,rear n/s wheel front o/s wheel and front n/s wheel last (I think if starting with the furthest away, and reverse that if starting with the closest).

Tightening torques for bleed screws, 6.5nm front and 14 nm rear..(so Ive read.

The professional bleeding systems not only pressurise the system but automatically top up the reservoir at the same time so it is possible to bleed all bleed points at the same time.

As modern brake system have duel circuits it is best to bleed them in sequence. In other words of you start at the front right wheel then the next bleed pint will be the other one that shares that circuit.
