Is Microsoft free* elearning for Sql Server 2005 useful for learning SQL Server 2000?

I'm working towards MCAD and as elective I want to do the SQL Server course. The exam is on SQL Server 2000.  I was just wondering whether the online course that Microsoft currently have a available for free at would be useful and applicable to SQL Server 2000, or whether it is sufficiently different product to make it confusing to use this as a learning resource.

Also if anyone can point me toward any webcasts for SQL Server that would be great. I listened to Fritz Onion's 15 part series when I studied  for my ASP.NET exam and would like to do something similar for SQL Server 2000 if any are available.

Try the link below for SQL Server related Web cast but I don't think it will help you pass SQL Server 2000 exam because there is a lot of difference between both products Microsoft spent $5 billion on just the Calculus end of the product.  I have given you the best resource for the exam which is the Robert Vieira book.  Hope this helps.

SQL Server 2005 Installation problems with SQL Server Express & SQL Server 2000
Hi Guys, I have had SQL Server Express and Sql Server Management Studio Express installed on my machine for some time and recently tried to install a trial of SQL Server 2005 as well.  (Yes, I'm migrating from Visual Studio Express to Visual Studio Professional, just as in tended!)
