The Chromatic Scale is a great exercise for developing fingering strength, dexterity, and practicing the thumb under technique.  Here is a 2 octave practice excercise for the right hand.

The pattern is simple: 1-3-1-3-1-2-3-1-3-1-3-1-2   (1 is your right thumb, and then count towards your pinky which is 5).  If it's too fast, slow down the tempo.  Once you're mastered this, take it to 3 octaves using the same pattern, and increase the speed.
