This is a pretty good exercise for both string skipping and finger independence. You hold your 2nd and 3rd fingers on the 3rd and 4th frets of the B string and use your 1st and 4th fingers to play the notes without moving your other two fingers.

You can also hold down your 1st and 4th fingers on the 2nd and 5th frets (on B) and use your 2nd and 3rd fingers. That looks like this. I am horrible at this one though.

Code:
---4---3---4---3---4---3---4---3---4---3---4---3------

Also try anchoring your two fingers on different strings, etc.
What an incredible exercise. I'll try to contribute something soon
