Presents a two-phase review methodology. The first phase, the walk through, concentrates on the logical correctness of the functionality covered in the review item. The second phase, the stagger through, concentrates on error handling and unexpected flows through the review item. The method is particularly suited to teams without a lot of development experience. A case study from an internet company is described at the end of the paper.
