 Oracle 8 Vs. 8i

I'm faced with a dilemma. I'm interested in taking courses for the Oracle
certification exam but I'm not sure whether there's really a big difference
between Oracle 8 and 8i. I've been looking around for some classes but all
of the cheaper places in NYC only offer classes for Oracle 8. So there
doesn't seem like there are many alternatives short of spending 10,000
dollars to get an oracle 8i certification. The only alternative that I can
think of is to take the Oracle 8 test and then take the 8i new features
test. But is this the best choice in terms of available jobs for oracle 8?
or am I taking a really roundabout route?
Another question is what's the job market like for the two certifications.
Is 8i more valued by employers than 8? Any input on this matter would
greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

 Oracle 8 Vs. 8i

I'm working on my Oracle 8 DBA Certification and plan on taking the
upgrade class and the upgrade test to become 8i certified.  If you are
getting certified to find a better job, having completed the 8 test
series and the 8i upgrade test would look better to an employer that is
still running 8 (IMO).
