In my own experience, if a solder joint looks right, it probably is. Experience will teach you what "looks right" means. Crimps give you no such visual clue.
A good technician knows how and when to use either method...each has it's place. A connection that defies soldering can often be crimped satisfactorily...non tinned, oxidized wire comes to mind.
