I'm trying (with great difficulty) to learn Windows Server 2003. I read some book that said "you can construct three types of relationships, or models between sites and domains." What is the difference between a site and a domain? I thought they were one and the same.

A  domain is a logical grouping of resources based on function and role and it more of a logical grouping i.e. computers, users, shared resources ,etc

All above sites below to one single domain (e.g domain.com) or Branch A, Branch B, Branch C are subdomain (e.g branch.domain.com) of parent domain (eg. domain.com)
