InDesign CS3: Wonky Printing

Is there a fool-proof way to consistently print high-quality drafts out of InDesign CS3? (my prints rarely look like the on-screen version)

I am by no means an expert, but I'm occasionally asked to make flyers and brochures for our company. I use InDesign CS3, however, when I go to print out of InDesign, sometimes certain layers don't print or the whole document just looks. . . .off. I've tried exporting to PDF and then printing, and that usually makes it a little better, but it's by no means high quality.
The only way I've found to maintain the on-screen version while printing is to export an EPS and then open that in Photoshop and print out of Photoshop. This is not very convenient when I'm printing multiple drafts for multiple projects throughout the day.
There has to be an easier way, right?
