Question Help with backup? Confusing...

Hi!

I wonder, does Nandroid backup (ClockWork Recovery) count as a current ROM backup? Even if it isn't a ZIP file? Is it usable in case of a new ROM flashing goes wrong? Is this it?
Why are there so many advices to make a .zip file of your backup? I'M CONFUSED over this... When do I have to make a .zip file out of my backup. Furthermore, a Nandroid backup makes a folder with several files in it... Do I make a .zip file of that folder?

And last but not the least...
What is the difference between Cyanogen Recovery Image and ClockWorkMod Recovery?

PLZ guys, don't be angry with me for asking. Gotta start learning sometime and need to have all the answers, all of the basics covered before advancing to the next level.
...Just a simple answer... PLZ?

In short:


- Which backup is which?
- When to make a .ZIP file?
- How to make a .ZIP file (out of which folder?)?
- The difference between Cyanogen Recovery Image and ClockWorkMod Recovery?


Thank you!

Nand folder is enough, zip isn't needed. Nand makes backup of all phone partitions, whis means it's complete ROM backup (except SPL and recovery; it's the same like make just backup of computer without BIOS and MBR). From my point of view, zip is not needed (maybe it's just better to store it on your computer as one file instead of directory with bunch of files).
I don't know the difference between CW and RA recovery, but I think it's not big today:
