Confused about seizures

I am totally confused about the different types of seizures.
For instance:
--What is the difference between a simple and complex seizure?
--What is an absence seizure?
--What is a partial seizure?  How does it differ from a simple
  seizure?
--What is the difference between a tonic-clonic seizure and a
  myoclonic seizure?
We talked about the different types of seizures today in class
and I was just lost.  This is not the first time I have tried
to understand it.  I've read in some textbooks but still have
trouble keeping everything straight.  Help!!

Lost yet again,
