Lighten PDF to Word (Free Edition) is a very handy software to bulk convert PDF files to word files. Apart from converting PDF to doc and docx format, it can also convert it to plain text format. Most unique feature of this software is that it lets you set separate page range for separate PDF files. For example, you can set 1-5, 7 page range for one PDF file, and can set 1-10 or any other page range (depending on number of pages) for another PDF file.
When there are many other similar PDF to word converters that can convert all pages only, this software comes in handy when you only need to convert a few pages and not the whole PDF file.
This PDF to Word converter also helps to preview PDF files on its good-looking interface. You can also zoom in/zoom out PDF page for reading it comfortably on its interface.

Note: Free version might not detect tables accurately available in your PDF files and might not convert tables correctly. However, in my testing, it converted tables quite well with all content clearly visible. If tabular data is not correctly converted by free version, then you can also upgrade to Pro version.
