A good way to find the words in a word search like this one, is to go through the puzzle row by row looking for a single letter that is the first letter of a word you want to find. Once you find one, look at the surrounding 8 letters to see if any of them are the second letter in the word. It helps if you start with a letter that is the first letter in more than one word.
