I am following the HEad First Java which is an awesome book for beginners. I have started to learn and i have picked up a lot of things. One thing i think which these books lack are exercises. When you learn a new concept, you would like to write programs. Sure, the book lists the concepts with an exercise code, but then it is not enough. For beginners, its more then just important to write different programs and then have a validation done for that, so ther should be answers. I see that lacking in so many books. Do you guys have any idea or do you agree with me on that. I feel there is a lack of resource on this thing. Any ideas?

The Cattle Drive here at the Ranch has exercises. (They are free to do if you don't want someone to review them.) The Thinking in Java book has end of chapter exercises.

Other places for coding exercises are Code Katas (this is just one website - there are others) or university websites.

Also Google for Javabat and Codingbat (they should both lead to the same place).
