    Question alongside vs together with

    Hi there,

    I'd like you to tell me if 'alongside' in the following sentence is ok:

    'Through this type of exercise alongside word search puzzles I have tried to cover a wide range of topic-based vocabulary.'

    Is 'alongside' here synonymous with 'together with'?Can they be used interchangeably in the above-mentioned sentence?
    Need I place any commas in my sentence?

    Thanks a lot,

    Re: alongside vs together with

    I'd use 'together with' there. To me, 'alongside' is physical location.
