Pre-Equilibrium Method Conditions

What are the exact conditions that must be met in order to use the pre-equilibrium method besides the reaction not being at equilibrium? Is that the only one?

It has to be a multi-step reaction where a fast step comes before a slow step.

Yeah, I agree with the above post. In this way, a lot of product from the first step will be produced and not used up until there is sufficient energy for the second, slower reaction.
