JTAG
Chip-off
ISP
Most students start off taking JTAG first. It’s easy to learn, relatively low cost for the equipment needed and it is non-destructive to the device. Chip-off equipment is considerably more expensive than JTAG and that alone can be a barrier to entry for many examiners with tight budgets. However, it is much more reliable. Teel Tech recommends the you take JTAG before taking ISP. Because ISP requires very fine precision soldering, it is recommended that you have adequate soldering experience.
