Classroom Management

What are some of your "best practices" that help with managing large lecture groups for students?

For example, last semester other members of this group said that they do not allow make-up exams. Or if make up exams are allowed, they are offered for half credit at the convenience of the instructor.
I instituted this policy this semester and it has saved soooo much time and taken a great burden off of me.
