Kents method of analysis of symptoms is from generals to particulars. The causative factors are evaluated at the highest order, followed by mental generals, physical generals, particulars, and so on. Among the mental generals, those belonging to will and emotions are evaluated first followed by those belonging to the intellect.

The rubrics are automatically ranked in order of importance, irrespective of the order in which you have selected them. The final analysis is reflected in the remedy table. It is recommended to use this method, when your case has marked Mental Generals.
Boenninghausen applies the principles of concomitance. The totality of symptoms does not necessarily mean the sum total of symptoms, but it may be a single grand symptom which has the location, sensation, modality and a concomitant. These concomitants have been described by him as the unreasonable attendants in the case i.e., no scientific explanation can be given for their presence in the case, but they make their presence persistent and in a great intensity. In Boenninghausens analysis, these symptoms are evaluated considering them as most important in the repertorisation sheet.
The Boger method of repertorisation emphasizes on pathological symptoms or pathological generals to ascertain the seat of local disease. General descriptions like headache or toothache may not help in anyway, but the site and side of pain will greatly help in pointing to the right remedy. Boger also gives importance to the concomitants. It is recommended to use this method when the pathological or pathological generals are relatively more marked. The rubrics are automatically analyzed and rearranged at a single click, in order of importance of Bogerian evaluation, irrespective of the order in which you have recorded them while repertorizing the case.
