Can someone please find me a powerpoint presentation over President Andrew Johnson?
I put "Powerpoint, Pres. Andrew Johnson" into Google and got a number of presentations. Here is the result.
Thanks, but noone of those was solely about Andrew Johnson. Could you please find me one only about him. Thanks,
You are searching for information that is so specific that you have to be prepared for the possibility that it may or may not be online.
At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.
My favorite way to search is to go to Google's advanced search page
(http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en)and put my search words or phrases into the first or second search box (either "all the words" or "exact phrase"). However, there many other strategies for searching you can use, and the HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET section will help you best.
I altered GuruBlue's search terms a little bit -- I used powerpoint "andrew johnson" (including the quotation marks), and here are the results:
There are some differences, but not many. You should try varying the search terms and see if you get any better results.
