For me, not all 40; just the ones I use most often...
Paradiddles (and inverted)
Paradiddle-diddles
six-stroke roll
double-stroke roll and variations (5,7,9, 13, 10, 17, etc.)
Flam variations
etc.

Also, not in a disciplined, regimented way. Just casually.
Though, that would be good for a beginner.

If you want to really learn them, only focus on a few at a time.

Singles, doubles, and flams. Learn those first. Until you have control over them you'll be wasting time with the more complex rudiments. :)

Negative. Leave the buzz roll out and reduce the speed to 60bpm until you can play cleanly. Then move it up by 2bpm a day, staying at any difficult BPM until you're comfortable at it.

It's useful, but you should be able to control a double-stroke first so your double's don't turn into buzz rolls.

Not only will playing slow improve your timing, like Drumur said, it will also increase your control.

Ok then :) I'll listen to your tips anyway you probably know what your talking about. So only 60bpm with quarter notes ? Because on my metronom i have the bpm and then i can add sounds in between like eight notes sixteenth
