    Looking for simple python exercises.

    I have been teaching myself python with the book "Beginning Python: From Novice to Professional." The book has been great except for one problem. It explains everything very well but provides me no exercises or tests to be sure that I actually know what I am reading about. It would be far more interesting for me to actually have to think how to use the tools I have learned to solve problems instead of just reading along and trying to absorb all the information.

    Does anyone have a good source of beginner python exercises and tests I could use or even a new book or guide I could follow that would have exercises built right in?

    Not meaning to hijack the thread, but is there anything similar for C++, and maybe PHP?

    In the link I found, there are links to tasks that are not language specific.

    In fact, I can't think of a task that would be language specific.

    More python/other language exercises are the weekly challenges on these forums... Also I found projecteuler.net to have some nice exercises... especially if you like math

    A bit late, as in... 11 months.
