Cmd is the built in command shell for windows

Appcmd is an iis tool for managing websites and worker processes etc.

note that appcmd works only with IIS7 and above.

The command prompt is an interface to enter MS DOS commands. You can read all about it here

Here's a list of commonly used commands

However I would recommend learning Powershell which is Microsoft's scripting language supporting both the command line shell and exposing powerful .Net features
