A quick Google for pdf to word offers quit a few options. Some free, some done online, some payware.

Perhaps another member will jump in with an application they use\have direct knowledge of.

I have tried a couple such programs (don't recall which since a lot of their names are similar). None worked very well. The resulting Word files needed serious reformatting.

There is an easier way, at least if your PDF viewer is Foxit Reader (maybe works in Acrobat too - I don't have it to try). Using the Select Text tool, you can copy things to the clipboard and paste them directly into Word. You'll likely still need to do some formatting but the initial result will look a lot more like the PDF original.

I just tried this one out. It's very simple and the formatting was identical.
