I bottled after I secondary fermented and it did not carbonate very well. The second batch was from only primary fermenter and it carbonated awesome! Is this typical of the secondary method?

Unless you waited a long time in secondary, it should have carbonated just fine. Maybe the amount of sugar was wrong, or perhaps not stirred in well so some bottles will get too little, and some too much.
