ArcGIS Templates: Aren't there more?

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been working on my GIS data editing skills in preparation for interviews with local gov't bodies (i.e. cities, regional districts, etc). One of the more common tasks I've been asked to do is to come up with a map of a parcel or subdivision in question usually at the 1:5000 scale.

First time out, I really sucked at it. Then I found the "Utilities.mxt" file through the Page Layout toolbar. Handy, but you'd think there would be more especially since several levels of goverment are serious customers of ESRI.

Anyway, I tried Googling for MXT files. Nada. ESRI Support online? Nada too. I thought perhaps some agencies may have standard templates that consultants would have to use for contract work but I'm snookered at this point.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Cheers.
