Here is a resource that explains what you are looking for. http://www.investopedia.com/articles/mutualfund/05/shareclass.asp

As an aside, I would advise not investing in any funds that have A, B, C, etc shares, and instead, choose no-load, no transaction fee investments. The share classes, A,B,C, etc were created by financial companies to incentivize brokers to sell their funds. Basically, it was a way for the mutual funds to pay sales people to push their funds.
