From a LaTeX file, you can produce DVI output, or a PDF file directly via pdflatex. You can switch on source specials for easier navigation in the output file, or tell latex to stop after an error (usually \noninteractive is used, to allow you to detect all errors in a single run).

These options are controlled by toggles, the keystrokes should be easy to memorize:

C-c C-t C-p

This command toggles between DVI and PDF output

C-c C-t C-i

toggles interactive mode

C-c C-t C-s

toggles source specials support

C-c C-t C-o

toggles usage of Omega/lambda.

There is also another possibility: compile the document with tex (or latex) and then convert the resulting DVI file to PDF using dvipsps2pdf sequence. If you want to go by this route, when TeX-PDF-via-dvips-ps2pdf variable is non-nil, AUCTeX will suggest you to run the appropriate command when you type C-C C-c. For details, see Processor Options.
