Using TDC will work most times, unless the cam is way big or it has very long clearance ramps, like the Duntov 30-30 cam.

If TDC is going to be used, at least verify that the lifters are not on the clearance ramps by setting them at TDC then check using the EO/IC method. If there's no change in the lash, you're good to go.
