Carnival is right. Winning all four slams in one year is the calendar slam, a.k.a. the true grand slam. Winning all four slams consecutively but not in the same calendar year is the non-calendar slam. Winning all four slams throughout your career is the career slam (which I think was just made up to make Agassi look better - I never heard of the term before Agassi's French). Winning all four slams and the Olympic gold medal in the same year is the golden slam - this was coined when Steffi won it. I'm not sure if too many people really think any higher of it than a regular slam since many people don't consider the Olympics a big event for tennis - it's more of a nationalistic thing.
I recall something about a career super slam or something like that as well. I think it was mentioned when Martina Navratilova won all four slams in doubles, mixed, and singles. But I'm not sure.
btw, most of these terms are more media terms than traditional tennis terms.
