The plywood types that include letter designations are the grade of the two faces: acx indicates one face is "a" (no defects, etc) and the flip side is "c" (some defects, knots, etc). the x indicates exterior grade. BC pine would be a plywood of pine with a "b" grade side and a "c" grade side. The higher the grade, normally the more expensive the plywood.

The other types listed are generally sheet materials mande from wood by-products, i.e. wood chips, etc.
