The short answer is Yes it is :)

A longer version would be that it's not the same. The term Usenet is the name of the virtual "net" that binds all the newsgroups together. A newsgroup is a virtual place on the net where you can post and read comments and questions on a given subject. Usenet is sum of all the newsgroups and all the questions and comments.
