Hey guys, I am a newbie to Java who's using Head First Java as my tutorial. It's a really great book, but I find it quite hard to creat some programs when I put my hand on the keyboard. It Seems that the book lacks some kind of lab-like exercises.

You guys have any idea or any recommendation about which book or website I should use to improve my pratical programming?

Thanks a lot! : )

You can always check out the CattleDrive. the exercises are posted and free. if you want them properly nit-picked, there is a nominal charge.

Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java has lots of challenging exercises. A free version of the previous edition (3rd) can be downloaded from Eckel's mindview site. It's also in HTML format at various sites, like this one.
