Well, it's a function of experience and trial-and-error, unfortunately. If you set up your volume elements using each method, you can see (usually) which will be easier to integrate.

Like loki has said, it depends on the function's graph ^_^

Usually its one of the either that will make the problem simple i would imagine...tho you could use both for any problem, aslong as you set it to the correct respect of the y or x axis. Usually Disc is when your trying to solve for x-axis and shell for y-axis.
