By "unit tests" you probably mean "unit tests, according to test-driven-development standards" (or a TDD variant).

Problems with this idea:
1. You can't learn TDD by code snippets and basic intuition; you learn its theory by organized study, and then do lots of exercises to solidify the knowledge.
2. The vast majority of unit tests written in the industry are by people who don't understand TDD basics. The answers with unit tests will be written (and upvoted) by people who don't understand TDD, accomplishing nothing for beginners hoping to gain useful knowledge.
3. TDD is not as widespread or useful to the industry as it appears. People pay lip service to how wonderful it is, clutter their code with useless unit tests not written according to any real standard, and then proceed to ignore all those useless unit tests 99% of the time (except for the 1% of the time where they talk about how wonderful and useful the unit tests are).
