Google Cheat Sheet

It's no secret that Google is the single most useful tool on the Internet for finding information. Yet, most people don't know that the simple Google search box can do much more than simply search for key words. There is of course the advanced search page, but much of what can be done there can be done with modified searches. For example, one can restrict a search to a specific web site by putting in the domain name after "site:". If you know a specific item is on a given site, this modified search will vastly improve your search time.

Schools are starting to teach online research skills. The cheat sheet -- below -- is something that should be included with any package of materials.
