I ALWAYS use Auto exposure bracketing, - 1/3, 0 & + 1/3. I always use this simple methodology, and it works just fine. I had to learn many years ago that if you are photographing a black bear, to reduce exposure, and vice versa.

I also look at the histogram but do not rely upon it often, in that AEB as stated above seems to do the trick.

If you don't take action pictures, then bracketing can be the way to go, but it is not suited for action stuff.

I use center weighted average with compensation where suitable. The evaluation algorithm differs from camera to camera... but not center weighted average.
