    Saber:
    to know a fact, to know something thoroughly, to know how to do something

    Example:
    I know how to read.
    I know that grass is green.
    I don't know your phone number.


    Conocer:
    to be acquainted with a person, place, or thing

    Example:
    I met you yesterday.
    John and Jen know Canada.
    I don't know Spanish Literature.


    Hope it helps. Otherwise, wait for SraJMcGin's response.

    Excellent, Kade! The best thing to do is try exercises with the difference between the two.

    Follow those rules Kade sent you, try the exercises you have and then ask that I check them for you.
