Hi Anonymous, R/3 is kind of ERP software which covers all needs of big enterprises to run their business. It has a so called modules: FI, CO, MM, SD, HR, PS, PP, PM for every particular area of business.
SAP NetWeaver is technology platform for SAP components which integrates these area in more sophisticated ways like: process, information etc. accorss organization. See my other posts on this blog like here.

Within NetWeaver you can work with modules (FI, CO, ..) e.g. in case of ECC software as NetWeaver is platform where these modeles run.

If you want to use NetWeaver for learning it you can download it for free as time limited preview version (sometimes called miniSAP) but this version has no modules installed. It is just technology platform without any business functionality.
