Center weighted metering does not take average of whole image. The center portion is given more weight, and the ratio of center to side is about 3:1.

spot is not necessarily always just the focus area, especially in the case of SLRs with multiple AF areas. usually the spot metering area is denoted with a small circle or square in the centre of the viewfinder.

spot takes the reading just from this small area, thus can be useful for more precise exposure.
