What does Cp and Csp represent and do they solve for the same thing?

The course reader says that Cp is the molar heat capacity of a gas at constant pressure. Csp stands for the specific heat capacity of a gas at constant pressure. So Cp is the heat required to raise the tempurature of one mole of a gas by one degree celsius at constant pressure, and Csp is the heat required to raise the tempurature of one gram of a gas by one degree celsius at constant pressure.
