I'd use sessions as a rule. You don't always want to pass data via a form or sometimes the querystring would be too long to hold all your variables (limit 256 chars). Depends on the data you want to pass - querystrings/get are fine for trivial things. BTW - DO NOT use $_REQUEST

You can always write to and read froma DB too. BUT, you'd probably need an identifier of some description too, like a session id hash in the url.
