Use the arrow keys to navigate to the top level heading, hit TAB to
expand the next level in that sub-tree, use the arrow keys again, hit
TAB on the second level heading, and recurse...  I find this quite
intuitive and easy to use.

of course, this assumes you know the hierarchy (i.e. under which
higher level headings your particular destination is to be found).  if
you don't know the hierarchy, I would suggest doing an expansion of
the whole file into the headings view (I can't remember what it is
called but C-u TAB cycles through the different views) and search
using C-s instead... remembering that you always have the full power
of emacs at hand which is partly what makes org so powerful!  For
example, you can also use

  M-x occur RET 

to search for particular strings in the whole file.
