Misc. LaTeX Wisdom
  • Don't use $$...$$ - it is a Plain TeX command. It will modify vertical spacing within formulas, rendering them inconsistent. Instead, use \[...\] or \begin{equation*}...\end{equation*} (Source: obsolete commands and packages)
  • For one-liners, use equation over align because equation will add less vertical space (Source)
  • Align is preferred for multi-line equations.
  • Use hyperref's \autoref{..} to avoid typing Section \ref{...} as it will automatically add in the correct preceding word. 
  • Put each sentence on a new line. This makes finding errors much easier.
