Framing a basement

I like the advice, "build the wall on the floor and then raising it up," but I have a couple of questions? I'm totally novice.
1. Can this method be used for the framing along the concrete basement wall, or does one have to do the one stud at a time method?
2. If it is okay to do the framing and raising the wall from the floor against the concrete, I would guess that such method would be in 8' sections, with shims to do the leveling. Would it be best to insert the shims under the floor plate or above the top plate?
Appreciate your views.
