I don't know of any site, specially for a practical exam. Myself I would try to find a coach and process a few parts under his guidance. One important thing is cleanliness. By that, I mean good precleaning. If your part is dirty, penetrant won't get in. Ensure you are processing your part within the parameters set by code. Beware when you are removing excess penetrant. Too little, the background will hide potential defects and too much will wash away defects. Try too keep your work area and hands clean to avoid transfer of penetrant to your parts. As I was told when I was a newbie: "Cleanleness is next to godliness". Good luck.
