An interesting training alert released by Boeing (May 2004) relating to the use of the auto throttle on approach and final.  Although the alert refers especially to the B757, it's equally valid for the B737.  I found it interesting reading.

The publication (powerpoint presentation) concerning the use of the autothrottle during Vref can be read here.  Search for Auto Throttle Useage - Training Alert.
