Can I assume you have looked these options up in the Auditing section of the online docs for the version of Oracle you are using?

Most of what you will likely get is copy/paste info on these parameters from the docs or other Internet links.

Is there anything in the docs for these that you find confusing?

Now that I'm off mobile and can look things up, I'm unable to come up with anything specific to those audit terms.  

Where did you come across them?

I can execute both statements below successfully.
AUDIT SESSION BY SESSION;
AUDIT CREATE SESSION BY SESSION;

What is AUDIT SESSION in fact? is it auditing someone who try to connect to the database?
if yes, then how the AUDIT CREATE SESSION different from the first one?

thanks!
