1) scan the last channel
2) scan the known channels for the last SSID
3) scan all (remaining) channels
The intermediate step only makes sense if those known channels are a relatively small subset of all channels, but with typical installations they will be. In fact, for many networks like your home network 1) and 2) will be exactly the same because you only have a single AP, but for typical enterprise networks 2) will still be better than 3).
