A structured walk-through test (also called a table top exercise) is

[a] preliminary step in the overall testing process that may be used as an effective training tool, but not as a preferred testing method. This is a test in which employees review and discuss the processes to be followed during specific contingency scenarios. Generally, these exercises are conducted with all participants in the same room. Key decision makers may be placed in role playing situations to follow specific steps in the disaster recovery plan. The objective is to test the participant’s knowledge of the procedures, identify any potential gaps in the plan, and evaluate the plans to respond to various events.[1]
