Hey Jose,

Just like anything else, we should always have a plan and method in place
when reviewing Themes.

For instance I tend to start from the bottom up and/or other way around.
footer.php and header.php are usually where "you" can find the potential
problems, such as improper scripts/styles inclusion, bad links, deprecated
functions, plugin-territory stuff etc.

If all this "checks-out" I like to open functions.php and go from there.

Getting familiar with the
guidelines<http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Review> is
the key.

My 2¢ :)
