Default Need a refresher on searches

I need a refresher on how to use the search feature. In particular how do you do a search for a particular phrase like (Drive Your CMP) if I type this in I get 84 threads with any combination of the three words or any of them singly. Most search programs have and exact phrase search feature which would be type in “Drive Your CMP” which would give you only those threads that have that exact phrase. Is there a way of doing exact phrase search?

From the Search screen:

"Advanced query: Join words with AND, OR and NOT to control your search in more detail.
Add asterisks (*) to use wild cards in your search (*bullet* matches vBulletin etc.)"

So your search would be:
Drive AND your AND CMP
