Google- Searching for certain file types

One of the coolest features on Google searches is the ability to search for common file types, such as Powerpoint (.ppt), Word Documents (.doc and .docx- word 2007 default file type) and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)

Just put your search term such as "Baader-Meinhof Gang" and put "filetype:doc" or whichever type of file for which you are searching. It is great to find ready made items or get ideas for your own work.
