A light sand paper grit is preferred.  The higher the number - the lighter the sand texture (100 -220).  Keep in mind that sanding drywall creates a fine dust that floats all over the room.  Cover furniture with plastic drop clothes and close off doors.

 

One of my favorite tools for this is a dustless sander that attaches to your wet/dry vac.

You can also use a wet sponge to reduce the surface down and prevent any dust.  Just keep it rinsed out as you go.
