Question how to install shingles?

Im not sure if this is true or not ( I dont believe so,I could be wrong) I was told that you start to shingle from the top and work your way down ,I would think you'd start from the bottom of the roof and work your way up?

bottom up, start with a chalk line that will run across the roof so you can make sure the shingles are lined up across the entire roof. you should measure from the top to make sure that the spacing is correct.
