Best type of primer to prime over latex paint.?

I have to prime over walls that have latex paint and had repairs done on them with joint compound. What is the best primer to use? There is so many different kinds, water based, oil based.

    You use a latex primer.

    You can't use an oil base primer and then use latex paint. Most really good paints have primer already in them, like Behr.  Surface prep is key. Make sure the repaired places have been sanded smooth and that the walls are clean.
