Removing sanding dust from drywall?

My drywall sub has just finished the final sanding and now I need to get the dust off in order to prime. What is the best and quickest way to get it off.

I usually take a push broom and sweep the walls. Although it doesn't remove 100% of the dust I have always found it does a sufficent job.

There are those who will say you need to vacumn and wipe down the walls which will do a better job of removing the dust.

Cheese cloth or I beleive these days they call it tack cloth will do the best job. Vacumming works well also.
