Actually, the best method is called the Rule of 9. Roll the car forward (do not bump the engine over with the starter). When any valve is fully open (rocker down), you can subtract the number of that valve from 9 and adjust the valve that is the result. For example, if valve 8 is open, subtract 8 from 9. The result is 1, therefore number 1 valve is adjusted.
It works the same way for all 8 valves.
