VS Version

Bought the guide and started reading it but it is designed for VS 2002/2003 and not 2005 which is the only one I could find to download. Is there somewhere to get 2003 or is it neccessary to have this? Otherwise it'll make the guide, as good as it may be, a little less worthwhile? Or am I being stupid :)
