Not only you get the shots overexposed(metering shadows only), but also possible to get them underexposed(metering highlights only).

The simplest solution for B+W negative is to meter at shadows and close down a stop.

Example, incident shadow reading say EV 8 then shoot at EV 9.

I presonally have no trouble with roll films. If you are shooting sheets you may need slightly more sophisticated technique which is very well explained in BTZS book.
