I do like a freebie! PDFConverter.com offers PDF-to-Word conversion in three simple steps: upload your file, type in your email address, and hit the "convert" button. Your new Word file will be sent to your inbox. It's all done online – no software to download, no plug-ins required, and no registration.
The maximum size of the file you can upload for free is 2MB. I tested it with a PDF of a large academic tome, and it did a great job. This isn't the only such tool available on the market, but it's free and so easy to use that I thought it was worth a plug.
