Quoting this introductory text -
http://www.w3schools.com/tcpip/tcpip_intro.asp 
TCP/IP
TCP/IP is TCP and IP working together.
TCP takes care of the communication between your application software (i.e. your browser) and your network software.
IP takes care of the communication with other computers.
TCP is responsible for breaking data down into IP packets before they are sent, and for assembling the packets when they arrive.
IP is responsible for sending the packets to the correct destination.

Hi,

It means that we are using TCP at the transport layer. UDP/IP means that UDP is used at the transport layer. Most of moderm day communication is TCP based over a network that is IP based.
