You might look at "Python Cookbook", by Alex Martelli.  Each
section (and there are many) gives a problem, a solution, and
a discussion.  So, you could read a problem section, write your own
solution, then compare your solution with the solution in the book. 
And, as a bonus, the discussion section will help to understand how
the solution works and why it's a good way to solve the problem.

There is also an on-line version, which is definitely worth looking
at, but does not have the problem-solution-discussion format:
