Hi all! I've been reading an excelent book on C# called Illustrated C# 2010 and I feel like I this book covers a lot of the topics I need in order to learn how to program. However, it isn't a textbook so there are no exercises for me to practice what I'm reading. While I may retain some of what I'm reading, I find it imperative that I actually sit down and write code in order to learn it. So my problem here is a lack of exercises.
Can anyone suggest a website, or a book that has a suffient amount of exercises that will help me learn the material I am reading? I've checked out sites like projectelure and spoj, but those sites seem like they are geared for people that understand the syntax of programming languages already and just need to learn how to create algorithms. What I'm looking for is a resource that has exercises on how to apply what I've read (for example: Write a program that uses delegates to do this... or Write a program that uses Interfaces to do x...)?
Does this make sense to you guys? I feel like I just wrote a lot of stuff to ask what everyone else will think is a simple question.
