I just finally took a minute to get a general idea of the Cocoa classes. So in case it helps any other beginners, Cocoa framework classes can be roughly arranged as:

 

Application Kit: User interface, audio and graphics

 

 

Core Data: Building and using the CoreData data manager

 

 

Foundation Kit:

 

scripting

 

timers times and timing

 

strings arrays dictionaries and formats

 

system inquiries and technical information

 

errors and exceptions handling

 

netwroking, ports, XML, URL, and files access

 

Key values, observing, notifications, queuing and protocols

 

 

 

This isn't a very good arrangement technically, but just something to give beginners a rough idea of the kinds of classes that are immediately available.
