as john has suggested, exercises in Python books are another great way
to get in the "practice" that you desire.
i put a significant number of exercises in "Core Python," some which
take 20-minutes as you had mentioned, but others may take up to 20
hours. they range from easy all the way to difficult, and some are
game-oriented while most are not.
there are about 260 exercises in the 1st ed., and the upcoming 2nd ed.
will have well over 300. i believe this is more than any other Python
book out there. hope to be challenging you someday!
