My students are taught to use substitution only when the integration
problem seems to be too complicated or to simplify problems which have
radicals.  I direct them to recognize the use of integration by parts
when there is a variable which will reduce to a constant after taking
the derivative of it one or more times orif there are functions whose
derivatives are of a cylic nature such as cosine, sine, or exponential
functions, then they are directed towards integration by parts.
