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:




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.
