This topic is BAD.

I don't think we should spend so much time discussing how to do things incorrectly.

The best practice is the one page method.

If anyone can advise why another method is better than this please contribute.

We should not be recommending or expanding on using sessions to store page data.
As the name suggests session is appropriate for storing data that will be used throughout the session.

This is like having every variable in a windows app as a global variable.

It makes no difference how many pages, or how many users, a best practise should be encouraged.

I'm sorry if I'm a wet blanket, conversation is good, but lets focus on the good information not the bad.

These topics stay on the web for ages and students will search for answers to this very question.

I Hope They Don't Find This One.

They say, best men are molded out of faults,
And, for the most, become much more the better
For being a little bad.
