For the code examples, have you tried looking up the home page for the 
book?  Google for 'oreilly learning python' and find the correct edition 
that you have.

If its the 4th ed (current), you should end up on a page like this:

http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596158071.do

Down in the right hand side-bar, there should be a menu 'Essential 
Links' and one of the options is 'Download code' or something along 
those lines.  The link should take you to a zip file with all the code 
examples in the book.

As far as practice exercises... maybe something like 
codingbat.com/python would be helpful.  Its not related to the book at 
all, and doesn't go nearly as in depth... but its kind of neat to play 
with and see how your code works when someone else is grading it! (at 
least for me).

HTH,

Monte
