I love exercises. They're great for people who are trying to learn the
language, and a great help to those of us who help them learn (not only
teachers, I'm a student myself, and spend a lot of time reviewing other
students' code to iron out their errors and teach them how things work).
Also, if the exercises have solutions, I can challenge myself to make
the solution faster, shorter, neater, or whatever.
