What type of routine are you currently running? Are you running a bill starr style 3 day a week routine? Or something else?

I am assuming you are still a relative beginner, I think if that is the case you should do your routine as it is written and not worry about it. Focus on getting stronger in the rep ranges/sets that the program has laid out for you.
If you feel like progress has stalled try doing straight sets or try doing a four day upper lower split with a ramping day and a straight sets day. Bottom line is progression. In most instances, within reason, it probably doesn't matter if you progress with ramping sets or straight sets. Just do it. Until progress slows. Then maybe do the other.
just started using bill starr's 5x5 linear strength program. All my lifts are at an intermediate level currently. I will stick with this program as long as I am making progress and than switch to 5/3/1

straight set> ramped set> warm up followed by 1 set.

It depends on the total volume you want really. The newer you are the more your need to practice a weight to get it properly. It's up to you man.
