Something that I found that I think has some very practical use for the music student is a site called Tonometrics.com. Tonometrics are neuroscience-based tests that students can take to test their ability to differentiate musical concepts such as pitch and rhythm. You can take the test as often as you want and it can really be used as a good practice tool to fine tune skills in tonal and rhythmic identification. Although the site isn't very "flashy" and seems to be a bit sterile, I think that it offers some really nice practice for students of music to test and refine their basic skills.
