What does he mean by "Prime the Walls, Sand again"? Is he saying to apply primer then sand?

We've removed the unwanted texture from the walls. Would we apply primer then Joint compound, sand, primer again then paint?

One thing that I do when doing the second coat of joint compound is to mix in some type of colorant (plumb chalk, food dye) in small amounts.
I can then skim over the areas and see where my low and high spots are very quickly.

I am a professional painter and I am always looking for tips. Your hand lamp is an excellent tip. I hate it when I finish my prep and start painting and I find a significant flaw in the wall.
