I would start with the Oracle® Database 2 Day + Real Application Clusters Guide
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/rac.112/e17264/toc.htm

The 2 Day guides are designed along the lines of a CBT.

I always prefer actual classroom instruction.  Oracle Education has several courses on RAC, ASM and Clustering.

The only other thing I know that I could post are the general online docs on the subjects and those are not really designed for learning.

I'm sure there are a ton of blogs/papers out there that claim to be walkthroughs on RAC, ASM  and Clusters but I cannot personally recommend any that I have used.

As slightwv mentioned, a search for "asm rac simulation" will give you enough leads to learn what others have tried, such as http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/garg-netapp-simulator-082037.html (older) and http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/rac/articles-rac.php (newer).

My next step would be to search in the IOUG.org and regional Oracle user groups for peer presentations.  It might also be fruitful to open an informational TAR with Oracle Support to ping them for any internal suggestions.

General things:

RAC:
Add a node, delete a node, rolling upgrade where you pull a node out, upgrade it then place it back in the cluster.

ASM:
Add disk groups, delete disk groups, etc...

Can I ask why the "B" penalty grade?

If you needed additional information why didn't you ask?
