It just so happens that chapter 5 of David Beazley's excellent "Python
Essential Reference", covering flow control and exceptions is available
online as a PDF.

Have a read. If you've programmed before it's an excellent book, always
the first thing I flick through. It's not really in a tutorial style, but
gives you the low down.

Exceptions are also covered in Mark Pilgrim's "Dive into Python":

Another excellent read for the initiated.

I take it you've been through the relevant part of the tutorial...
