Conditions vs Events

Le Monde De Python,

I've been working a lot with python threads from the threading module.
Specifically, when is it better to use a condition object vs an event

It seems to me that, at least superficially, I can just about use these
two mechanisms interchangeably. The only real difference I can see is
that I can call isSet() on an event in the case that an event is
triggered before wait() is called. Are there any differences?

Also, does calling wait reset some type of "notify" in a condition
object like it does in an event object?
Anyhow, thanks for your help!
