    Reviews

    NetWars is challenging for all levels of expertise, has great hints if you get stuck, and promotes continuous education.

    Core NetWars was challenging but not frustrating for newbies. This is my first time doing NetWars and it has been a blast.

    Having participated in NetWars Continuous and in the NetWars Tournament, I can honestly say that they were the most intellectually challenging and enjoyable tests of technical skills in which I have participated.
