As was mentioned before, no one is going to ask you to use the JET method. ATW is useful if you want to do one-piece patterns. Most racquets today require an ATW pattern to do a one-piece job doing the crosses from top to bottom. The reasons you might want to use one-piece include conserving string if you use reels and putting less wear on the grommets because you have only two tie-offs. I don't particularly like the traditional one-piece pattern where one of the end mains is loose because it's a tie-off while the other side is tight. I usually modify it by weaving a cross with the short side, which eliminates the unevenness.
If you want to learn ATW, look at the videos in the stickies.
