Photoshop practical exercises?

Can anyone recommend any websites (or books) that have specific Photoshop exercises to perform – as opposed to tutorials.

I am not sure how practical this is but, ideally, I would like something that gave out weekly exercises and then followed it up a week or so later with possible solutions. I am not averse to subscription based learning like this, but really am looking for something that requires me to work under my own steam.

I am in that – sort of – intermediate phase as a Photoshop user – lots of theoretical experience but really feeling the need to kick on.

I'd go with drawing exercises, then translate them to photoshop tools. They're very valuable, and they take a little modification to use directly in photoshop with a tablet. It also gives you the opportunity to see directly how accurate you really are with that tablet or even that mouse.

Thanks Doug (and Kav). Appreciate your feedback.
The Challenges, in particular, look exactly what I am looking for. Wasn't aware of them before.
