Question about weights (lorries and Cat.C driving license)

As I intend to build an expedition vehicle, I'm working on my Cat.C driving license.

That said, I'm truly lost with the section on weight calculations.

Calculating gross weight, certified weight, towing weight, total weight, effective weight, etc for a rig isn't something I really intend to do once the vehicle is build (no trailer), but it's needed for the exam.

Does anyone have a good source (ideally in English, but otherwise in Italian), that explains what each of these terms is, and how to calculate them? I found some stuff online - but it seems to follow a different rule-set than the Swiss....

I find the whole part about adding the weight of only one axle quite... weird (using iTheory to learn, as no learning school near me speaks English or Italian).
