Smoothing Plaster Walls

We are prepping plaster walls for repainting in a house we just bought. The walls are rough because of half-hearted patching jobs and paint drips from the last owner. Is the best approach to attack these with a finishing sander, or will hand tools work better? Also, should we be smoothing with new plaster?
