Both ways. I would use session if the form(s) must be completed at once.
If someone can save forms 1 and 2 and another day return to complete the
remaining steps, then a database might be better.

  Also, if you use a database to hold temp info that must fly between the
forms, you would have to write more code (of if/else {
SELECT/INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE), and the performance overhead of so many db
queries might not be a good idea.

  Can't afirm 100% since I don't know your complete enviroment, but from
what you told and my personal experience, I would go with sessions.
