That isn't optimal - you're just spreading out the error over a period of time.

Blip the throttle and get it just right. Especially if you doubleclutch, the stick seems to be "sucked" into the gear when you get the revs just right, i.e. if you revmatch not only does the car not lurch but it goes in easier.
