I believe atomic weight is the measured weight of the atom whilst the molecular weight is the measured weight of the molecule (so add weights of the atoms within the molecule). ;)

The atomic Mass is the mass of one atom of an element
The Molecular weight is the mass of the sum of all the elements in a compound
