That's a good point, it will be helpful for courses. (but not a requirement)

TC++PL does have exercises - at least the 3rd edition does, although they are not so prominent. 

I like to use exercises as review questions or summary, looking at them helps to get a feel
for how much you've understood. Also, fun or really good exercises I will take, like the ones in SICP.
