Hello all.

Due to unfortunate circumstances im gonna be out of school for a while. I was a computer science major and don't want to go back to school after a year or more and get thrown back in to classes after not having practiced for a few years.

Does anyone have any idea were i could find practice work similar to the kind of problems you would get in a classroom setting? I'm not entirely creative and can't really think of anything to program on my own. I'm open to just about anything that is cheap enough to afford on a college student budget. Websites, books, magazines, its all good. I'm also considering doing some time at a local community college until i can get back in to my regular school (just to keep up w/ my math and hopefully keep my self from never going back to school). I might see if they offer a programming course i can take.

Thanks for any ideas

Project Euler is good for math-y problems. I enjoy working on them. Top Coder has mini-contests and challenges. You need to register for a free account. There are also tons of sites with Programming contest problems. For typical 'core' exercises, check out a programming book from the library. The end of each chapter will have simple exercises.
